Bloom, 36, has been starring on Broadway in Romeo and Juliet since September, and his fetching co-star, Condola Rashad, who is 10 years younger than him, has reportedly stolen his heart.
Rashad, 26, is the daughter of actress Phylicia Rashād, of “Cosby Show” fame, and NFL player and sportscaster Ahmad Rashād. She and Bloom have reportedly become inseparable since they began starring in the show.
Their affection for each other has been noticed by friends, who now quietly say they are a couple, according to London’s Daily Mail.

“Another announcement from Orlando could be on the horizon. Their fondness for each other is obvious,” the source said.
Ironically, Bloom and Kerr last appeared together on Sept. 19 at the opening of his Broadway show. He plays Romeo and Rashad plays Juliet. Bloom and Kerr were spotted together in New York City yesterday (Oct. 26) with their son Flynn.
They appeared affectionate together, and Bloom told reporters they “weren’t friends, they were family.” So the split appears to be amicable. But there’s no question they’ve called it quits.
“After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation,” a rep said on Thursday (Oct. 24). “Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.”
Meanwhile, both Bloom and Rashād are practically gushing over each other.
“We sometimes get applause after our first kiss because it just goes on and on,” Bloom said in a recent interview. “Sometimes I’m like, ‘I’m not letting go.'”
“What’s funny is we didn’t have to force it,” Rashād added. “We had a connection from the minute we met, a sense of comfort. We’ve built the relationship we have just by being around each other.”
