The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker has praised the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star for being so "kind".

She said: "He was a previous award recipient last year, so he knows it better than I. And he's been a UNICEF ambassador for over 10 years and I've only been a few years so he's kind of shown me some of the ropes.

"Everyone is a teacher in a relationship, that's how I see it now. We've taught each other a lot."

And the 32-year-old singer feels that as a celebrity, it is important to raise awareness of issues that affect the wider public.

She added to Entertainment Tonight: "You could so easily just live in a bubble and be self-absorbed and make sure that it's just you, you, you.

"I have so much shine and spotlight, so it's nice to take that spotlight and move it to a need that needs it more and UNICEF has really helped me understand that."

Meanwhile, the couple sparked rumours they had got engaged when Katy was seen sporting a jewel on her wedding finger in New York City on Monday (27.11.16).

A source shared: "She (Katy) walked with her left hand leading her, and bent her hand to show off the large sparkler to the cameras. They seemed proud to show off their happiness ... Katy's mood was better than [I] had seen before. Katy was happy and laughing, joking with Orlando and pals as they got into the car. They seemed proud to show off their happiness."

If the pair do decide to get married, it will be their second marriages as Orlando was previously married to Miranda Kerr, with whom he shares five-year-old son Flynn, and Katy was wed to Russell Brand until they divorced in 2012.
