Newlyweds Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have swiftly headed into the next chapter of their domestic bliss: after weeks of speculation Kerr confirmed that the couple are expecting their first child.
“Yes, I am pregnant. Four months along,” Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr told Spanish Vogue, according to People Magazine.
“I have always been very open about wanting to be a mother,” she told a Sydney newspaper earlier this month. “And I’ve always thought Orlando would be a great dad.”
The lingerie model said it was initially difficult to keep news of the pregnancy quiet. “I remember on one occasion in the early days [of my pregnancy] when it was still too soon to say anything, and I had a dreadful time at one job.”
The pair confirmed their engagement in June and tied the knot just last month. Miranda Kerr announced the nuptials when she nixed an appearance at Australian department store David Jones to join Bloom at the altar.
“David Jones very graciously released me during this period so we could celebrate an intimate ceremony and honeymoon together,” Kerr said in the statement.
“I’m very much a part of the David Jones Family and I am very committed to my role. I am enormously grateful to David Jones to have been given this time to enjoy such a special moment in my life.”
The couple began dating in 2007 but didn’t hit the scene publicly until April 2008. “We were friends for a while, and then it just developed into a little more,” Kerr told Hello! magazine in September 2008.
Kerr told Page Six magazine in the same year that she expected to abandon her globe-trotting career in favor of a more low-key, family-oriented lifestyle. “I’ve always wanted kids, so someday, eventually, yes, it will happen,” she said.
“My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch. When this is all over, that’s where I’ll be.”
