Miranda Kerr: Ex Orlando Bloom and I "Really Do Love Each Other"
Everything's fine and dandy! Miranda Kerr split from husband Orlando Bloom last October, but the model continues to insist that they remain nothing but friendly toward each other. Kerr, who shares son Flynn, 2, with the British actor, reveals in a new interview that they are "very good" despite now having a platonic relationship.
"We speak every day. We're really close, we're going to be a family forever and we both really do love each other," the 31-year-old said in Harper's Bazaar UK's June 2014 issue. "We have genuine love and respect for each other. We're very connected and I feel grateful for that. We created something beautiful together and we both remind ourselves how lucky we are to have that. And yeah, it's good. He's a great dad. I'm lucky."
Kerr and Bloom, 37, split six months ago after three years of marriage, but have remained amicable. The twosome were photographed kissing in NYC just three days after their announcement, and Bloom (that charmer!) jokingly interrupted Kerr's red carpet interview during the Vanity Fair Oscars in L.A. on March 2.
"Everyone goes through challenging periods in their life. That's inevitable and it's part of being human," Kerr told Harper's Bazaar. "I feel like it's a daily process to be positive. It's something that's a choice and I have different tools, like meditation, even prayer – my grandmother taught me to pray when I was young—and just finding that inner peace."
Seems as though Kerr has found peace professionally as well. As Us exclusively reported, the brunette stunner parted ways with Victoria's Secret after a three-year contract back in April 2013. An insider told Us she was "not a big seller for VS," but Kerr sees the departure a bit differently.
"It was a big chunk of time that I wasn't able to commit to because I'm a mother. I used to be in two different countries every single week," she told the mag. "I made a conscious decision to shift gears. I'm very much a people-pleaser at heart -- I feel that if everyone else is happy, then I'm happy—but I'm learning the power of saying no and putting my foot down."
