Orlando Bloom has met girlfriend Miranda Kerr's parents.
The Australian-born Victoria's Secret model took the 'Lord of the Rings' actor to lunch with her mother and father at Sydney's Catalina restaurant over the weekend.
An onlooker said: "They all seemed to be at ease with each other and were getting on well. Things seem to be getting serious between Orlando and Miranda."
Miranda, who was dressed down in a grey dress and brown boots, told a fellow diner jet-legged Orlando had been "very reclusive" since arriving in Australia last week.
She said: "I've had to drag him out today!"
After the meal, Orlando gave Miranda's mother a big hug before they went their separate ways.
Miranda recently described Orlando as a "sweetheart" and revealed the pair shared a mutual belief in Buddhism.
She said: "He's a sweetheart and that's all I'm going say. A real sweetheart.
"I practice Japanese Buddhism. At the heart of it all, it's about practicing peace."
In 2005, Orlando took his first steps towards becoming a Buddhist by taking part in an hour-long ceremony to commit himself to the faith.
He joined 60 other fledgling Buddhists at the Soka Gakkai International Buddhist movement's headquarters at Taplow Court Mansion in Maidenhead, Berkshire.
During the ceremony, Orlando was presented with a Gohonzon - a scroll with Chinese and Sanskrit characters on it.
