Miranda Kerr Named Son Flynn After Late Boyfriend
Miranda Kerr named her son after a very special man, but it wasn't husband Orlando Bloom.
Born on Jan. 6, 2011, Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom was (in part) named after the 28-year-old model's first boyfriend, Christopher Middlebrook. Middlebrook died tragically in a car accident as a teenager. (Kerr does not indicate the year of her beau's death.)
"Chris and I had been dating for two years," she told Australia's Daily Telegraph. "After he died, I wrote him a letter that said I hoped to name my first child after him in some way. I told Orlando and he was the one who said he'd be happy to do that. Orlando's a good guy."
Her labor lasted 27 hours; she told InStyle Australia the pain was so bad that "I thought I was going to die."
But Flynn's painful delivery was well worth it in Kerr's eyes. She gushed about her six-month old son: "When he gives me that smile, my heart just melts."
