Model, beauty mogul and 1997 Dolly Magazine cover girl competition winner Miranda Kerr is expecting her second child – the first for her husband and Snapchat co-founder and CEO, Evan Spiegel.
Second marriage, second child
“Miranda, Evan, and Flynn are looking forward to welcoming the newest member of their family,” a rep for the couple announced Wednesday night.
The model mum had recently revealed she and Evan would wait until they were married before they tried for a baby together. It appears they’ve done just that, although we don’t have any details regarding the due date, as yet.
“I’m not planning for a child yet. Not until after we get married. My partner is very traditional. We can’t … I mean we’re just … waiting,” she told The Times in February this year, perhaps indicating that children conceived out of wedlock were out of the question – or that they were abstaining from sex before marriage.
This is all part of the new Miranda, a 2.0 version that wholesomely touts so-called traditional values and more old-fashioned roles.
Miranda and Snapchat founder Evan wed at their home in Brentwood Los Angeles on May 27 – and presumably got cracking trying for a baby – because here we are.
Chatting about her wedding dress after the happy event, she shared further thoughts on her more conservative approach to life.
“A dress that fully covers you creates a sense of purity and mystery. I’ve had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian. But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back,” she explained.
“Slip into my feminine”
Miranda also spoke to Net-A-Porter Magazine earlier this year, providing further insight into how things work in her marriage – and the role she likes to adopt.
“My grandma taught me that men are visual and you need to make a little effort. So when [Evan] comes home, I make sure to have a nice dress on and the candles lit. We make time to have a nice dinner together.”
“At home, I slip into my feminine and empower Evan to be in his masculine,” Miranda explained. “[I like to] just be more in my feelings. More gentle, leaning back. It’s a nice balance.”
“I want to give birth naturally”
Miranda’s previously spoken about the miracle of Flynn’s birth, saying that while it was an “empowering” experience, she might opt for a less painful approach the second time around.
“They induced me and I didn’t take any pain medication. I was like, ‘I need everyone in the hospital not to offer me any pain medicine, I want to give birth naturally.’”
“It’s magical. I was so happy to have him out and connect with him and breastfeed him. I was like, ‘Oh my God, how’s he going to get out?’ And then he was out,” she told The Times.
Congratulations to Evan, Miranda and Flynn on their exciting baby news.
