Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr celebrate their first child


Former big screen pirate, Orlando Bloom and his supermodel wife, Miranda Kerr, are celebrating becoming parents after Kerr gave birth to their son.

The 27-year-old Victoria’s Secret model gave birth to the as yet unnamed boy at a Los Angeles hospital on Friday. As reported by the Herald Sun, The child weighed in at a healthy 4.5 kilos, which equates to around 10lbs.

Kerr’s grandmother, Ann Kerr, has apparently said that both mother and baby are doing “very well” and there were no complications during the delivery. This information comes courtesy of a family friend.

Kerr’s parents, Therese and John Kerr, both flew to the America in order to be with their daughter for the birth of their grandchild, and Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom, 33, was there by her side to witness the birth of their first child.

Although the couple insisted they wanted to the child’s gender to remain a surprise, Miranda Kerr was seen shopping for boy’s baby clothes last week, and rumours abound that the couple already knew they were expecting a son.

Bloom and Kerr were married in a very intimate ceremony last July after three years of courting each other. When the news of Kerr’s pregnancy became public, Bloom, speaking of becoming a father for the first time, told the press in August, “I’m really excited about it, it’s great.”
