Miranda Kerr and husband Evan Spiegel announce birth of their baby boy
The little boy, who has been named Hart after Spiegel's grandfather, was born exactly at 1:53 p.m on Monday
Congratulations are in order for Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel, for they have become parents to a baby boy. The Australian model gave birth to her second child and her first with husband Evan Spiegel on Monday, May 7 in Los Angeles.
The little boy, who has been named Hart after Spiegel's grandfather, was born exactly at 1:53 p.m on Monday.
“Words cannot explain how happy we are to welcome our beautiful son into our family. Miranda is doing well and Flynn is excited to be a big brother. Thank you for the kind words and wishes during this very special time,” the new parents told People in a statement.
The former Victoria's Secret model is also mother to 7-year-old son Flynn with her former husband Orlando Bloom, who is now reportedly dating Katy Perry.
The reports of Kerr being pregnant first hit the news in November last year, which was just six months after the duo had gotten married in a lavish ceremony involving 40 chauffeured guests at an intimate reception held in the backyard at the Snapchat co-founder and CEO’s Los Angeles home.
She debuted her baby bump in January, while she was attending a certain Golden Globes after-party in a leopard-print fitted black gown, in order to show solidarity for the ongoing Time's Up movement.
According to Kerr, her 7-year-old son was one of the first people who was ready for another baby to walk around the house. In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel in February, Kerr told the host, “He’s very excited. He’s so excited that Evan and I had been together for a while and he was like, ‘When are we going to have another baby brother or sister?’ And we were like, ‘Look, we’ve got to get married first.’ ”
“The day after the wedding, he (Flynn) comes running in and he’s like, ‘Mommy, is it in there?’ I was like, ‘Honey, give it a minute.’ ”
When Kimmel asked her jokingly if Spiegel would be recording the whole birth process on Snapchat, she assured him that her going into labor would not be documented by her husband in any way.
“What I love about Snap is you can send to your friends and family, like, you know, the little intimate moments that you’re sharing. So my family in Australia, we Snap all day long. But publicly, it’s like a different thing. You want to keep some things private.”
The model also had talked about the complications she had to go through during her second pregnancy, and how it was harder than the first time around.
“I have been getting hormonal headaches, which I never got with Flynn,” she told Us Weekly in an interview in December. “Apparently, my doctor said [with] the second pregnancy, your hormones kind of kick in a little stronger because they’re like, ‘Oh, yeah. I know what’s happening. I know what to do.’ So that’s probably why.”
