Miranda Kerr’s seven-year-old was charged with drawing his hero and it’s fair to say he totally nailed the task. Sob!
“So, so nice to me”
“My heroine is my mom because she fills me with love and she is so, so nice to me,” young Flynn wrote underneath this blinking adorable drawing of himself and Miranda snuggling between a rather lovely pair of trees. (Flynn’s dad is actor Orlando Bloom.)
Kerr is now expecting her second child, her first with her Snapchat co-founder husband, Evan Spiegel. She recently explained just how keen Flynn was for a baby brother or sister and his enthusiasm is palpable!
Miranda and Evan married at their home in Brentwood Los Angeles in May last year and Flynn was on to something because they were pregnant in a trice!
Miranda has some clear ideas about how gender roles, marriage and parenthood should work.
When asked about babies during her engagement she told The Times, “not until after we get married. My partner is very traditional. We can’t … I mean we’re just … waiting.”
On her wedding dress she said she favoured 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.”
“I slip into my feminine”
It’s not the first time she’s talked about modesty and fairly conventional roles …
“My grandma taught me that men are visual and you need to make a little effort,” she told Net-A-Porter Magazine last year. “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. [I like to] just be more in my feelings. More gentle, leaning back. It’s a nice balance.”
Despite Evan’s social media roots, Miranda says the family are focused on a less public approach to online life.
“My husband’s a very private man,” she told Kimmel, ironically ruling-out the notion of posting photos or video of her own children on his company’s hugely popular platform, Snapchat.
