Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom engaged

MIRANDA Kerr will marry her British boyfriend, actor Orlando Bloom, The Sunday Telegraph can exclusively reveal.

The wedding is planned for the middle of next year, when both have a break from work commitments.

Bloom and Kerr, who live together in New York, celebrated their engagement with a romantic getaway in Venice last week.

The revelation comes only weeks after the Brisbane-born beauty denied any wedding plans.

Kerr, 25, was also in the Italian city to shoot David Jones' autumn/winter campaign.

The couple share many interests including yoga and clean-living ways.

In the latest edition of the New York Post's Page Six magazine, the Victoria's Secret lingerie model talks about her plan to one day leave the fashion world and have babies.

"I've always wanted kids, so someday, eventually, yes, it will happen,'' she said.

"My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch.

"When this is all over, that's where I'll be.''

Kerr and Bloom's relationship has been under scrutiny since they went public as a couple earlier this year, but the Gunnedah-born beauty has remained cool and calm.

"We know what we feel about each other,'' she has told The Sunday Telegraph, "so it doesn't matter what anyone else says.''

Kerr, known for her wholesome lifestyle, will next year bring out a self-help book, Treasure Yourself, aimed at young girls.
