Victoria’s Secret lingerie model, Australian Miranda Kerr, and new husband, Orlando Bloom, are expecting their first child it was announced today. According to an interview in the Spanish edition of Vogue, Miranda Kerr is already four months pregnant, with the baby due early in 2011. Kerr and husband Orlando Bloom only announced their engagement in June and married quickly in July this year which, at the time, fueled speculation about a possible pregnancy. Now the pregnancy is confirmed.
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom had already been together almost three years when, all of a sudden out of the blue, they said they were engaged. Less than four weeks later, the couple wed in a secret ceremony in Morocco. Although rumors were rife that Kerr was pregnant, to others who knew the couple well the quickie wedding and secret ceremony didn’t seem that big of a deal. Both Kerr and Bloom are Buddhist and had said all along they wanted a simple wedding and a simple life. Big environmentalists, they’ve always eschewed the glitz and glamor as much as being big celebrities can, so a quickie wedding somewhere exotic away from prying eyes seemed quite normal for them.
Now however, tongues are wagging about the impending baby birth, whether it will be a boy or a girl (the couple have not said if they already know), and where Kerr and Bloom will be bringing up their child. Miranda Kerr is from a small town in New South Wales, Australia and Orlando Bloom is British and was born and raised in Canterbury in Kent. Bloom currently owns houses in London, Henley on Thames and Los Angeles, and although Miranda Kerr’s family lives in Brisbane, Australia, Kerr spends most of the year in the UK or America, as well as on various fashion shoots around the world. It’s likely though any children they have will spend their childhoods in the UK or the US, as both mother and father are likely to have active careers in both countries for years to come.
Meanwhile, in recent photos, Miranda Kerr looks like a mother-to-be should do. Happy, healthy and glowing. Dad-to-be Orlando Bloom looks like he couldn’t be happier. That quickie wedding was obviously a happy event and, the child now on its way, the icing on top of a very beautiful cake.
