A couple of weeks ago we learned that happily-marrieds Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom welcomed the birth of their firstborn son but since then we’ve gotten no official word from the family at all about the baby. As I understand it, Miranda and Orlando took their time naming their son so perhaps that is why we hadn’t heard any news … until now. Miranda posted the FIRST PHOTO of the couple’s newborn son on the official website for her Kora Organics skincare line. The new mom also released an official statement announcing to the world that she and Orlando named their baby boy Flynn.
It is indeed a son for Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom. Baby Flynn arrived on Jan. 6, weighing 9 lbs., 12 oz., says the model on her Kora Organics Web site on Tuesday, confirming widespread speculation. She also posts a photo of herself nursing “our beautiful little son.” “I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him,” she adds. “We are so happy and are enjoying our time together as a family. He is our little ray of sunshine. Thank you everyone for your beautiful well wishes and your lovely thoughts.” Kerr and Bloom, 33, have been together since 2007 and married quietly in July 2010.
What a beautiful photo! Miranda looks radiant and Flynn looks, well, he looks really happy :D Despite the fact that Miranda and Orlando remained completely silent in the wake of news of their son’s birth, it was widely believed by all that the baby was born on January 6 … so now, at last, we have official confirmation. Here is the full text of Miranda and Orlando‘s official statement:
On the 6th of January I gave birth to our beautiful little son Flynn. We cherish him. He weighed 9lb 12 ounces (a very healthy and big baby boy). I gave birth to him naturally; without drugs or painkillers and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him.
Thank you everyone for your beautiful well wishes and your lovely thoughts and comments. I haven’t had a lot of time to read many comments or to respond, but please know I will when I do get a chance.
The attached picture is one that Orlando took of us.
Much love Miranda and Orlando
Let’s send all of our love and congrats to the happy and newly expanded family!! Welcome to the World, Flynn!
