Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry keep their personal and family life out of the spotlight, but recently were able to share their joy with their millions of fans.

Earlier in the week, Katy revealed that she had organized a pickleball tournament called Light Up The Court in her native Santa Barbara with the help of her family.

She teamed up with her older sister, Angela Hudson, as they raised funds for the Firework Foundation, just days before Katy's 39th birthday on Wednesday, October 25.

Orlando, 46, took to his Instagram to share the sweetest tribute to his fiancée and her family alongside a video from the event, writing: "The @fireworkfoundation Pickleball event was another example of the Hudson sisters' remarkable team effort to raise funds that will help empower children in underserved communities by igniting their inner light through the arts! 

"I've seen firsthand the smiles & joy created by the work the firework foundation does! So proud of my girl Katy."

The "By The Grace of God" singer shared her own message of gratitude after the event took place, penning: "My mom brought (maybe even forced) her love for pickleball upon our family, and now we’ve decided to use those pickle powers for good.

"Yesterday @fireworkfoundation had our inaugural Light Up The Court pickleball tournament in Santa Barbara to raise money for scholarships, more camps, and programming to bring the arts to kids from underserved communities," she continued, also joking: "And not to brag, but I totally beat @OrlandoBloom in front of everyone too.

"I'd like to send a huge and sincere thank you to all who participated in the tournament, bought a ticket, volunteered, donated, and showed their support from near and far."

For her birthday, Katy and Orlando remained away from social media, most likely celebrating with their adorable daughter Daisy Dove Bloom, who turned three back in August.
