Childbirth was a bit of a nightmare for Miranda Kerr, but at least she has a dream husband with whom to raise son Flynn.
“I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body,” the model, 28, tells InStyle Australia of the delivery back in January. “I was looking down on myself – the pain was so intense.”
“I kept thinking, ‘How do women do this?’ But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined.”
“It’s whoever has their hands free,” she says of the parenting duties. ‘When I’m not working we don’t have a nanny. Some nights we have a lady who comes in to help out, but [Flynn] is getting better at sleeping now, so not as often. And if I need to get on a plane for one day of work, I pump my milk and put it into the freezer for Orlando.”
“[Flynn is] a big baby, 4.5 kilograms [almost 10 pounds] at birth,” she says. “And I thought to myself, ‘I have so much more that I want to do aside from modeling. I can live with my body not being in shape if I have a healthy son. It’s worth it.’”
