Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, his Australian-born girlfriend, made their first public appearance together Saturday at Sydney’s Doncaster Day at Randwick Racecourse, a major horse racing event, people.com reports.

But the real proof came the day before, when an unshaven Bloom, 31, met up with the Victoria’s Secret model and her parents for a cosy lunch at Catalina’s in Sydney’s Rose Bay.

Kerr — dressed down in a grey jersey dress with brown boots — told a fellow diner her jet-lagged beau had been “very reclusive” since arriving Down Under. “I’ve had to drag him out today!”

But once faced with the parents, it seemed Bloom perked right up — and turned on the charm. As they were leaving, the actor was spotted giving Kerr’s mother a big hug.
