Us Weekly: Orlando Bloom & Miranda Kerr are expecting their first child


Just to make this clear, Miranda Kerr and Orly Bloom have not confirmed that they are expecting. Us Weekly just has “sources” who claim that Miranda is pregnant. If it’s true, this is not shocking in the least – after a whirlwind month-long engagement, Orly and Miranda got married secretly, discreetly and amazingly fast last week in Australia, and many theorized that the wedding was of the shotgun variety. I theorized that Miranda probably wasn’t knocked up, only because I didn’t see her wanting to put her modeling career on hold to have a baby right away, but it looks like I could be wrong!

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr sure can keep a secret!

Not only did the lovebirds recently pull off a totally under-the-radar wedding, but a source tells the new issue of Us Weekly that the Victoria’s Secret model, 27, has been keeping something else classified as well: She’s pregnant!

“She’s definitely pregnant… Miranda’s thrilled,” says a source close to the Australia native, who wed the actor, 33, at an undisclosed location — reportedly in the Caribbean — less than a month after revealing their engagement on June 21. “She’s telling all her friends, mostly other models, about it.”

While the pal says no official announcement will be made, the couple of three years’ big news will be hard to keep hidden.

“She poses in lingerie,” says the friend of Kerr, who has modeled for Victoria’s Secret since 2007. “It will be obvious soon enough.”

The bride, who kicked off a Caribbean getaway with Bloom at Anguilla’s Viceroy resort on July 17, certainly hasn’t hidden her desire for a child.

“I have always been very open about wanting to be a mother one day,” she recently told an Australian newspaper. “And I’ve always thought Orlando would be a great dad!”

Of course, this could all be bullsh-t. But Us Weekly has been veering more towards the People Magazine route of only reporting pregnancies and such when they have some harder confirmations, so I tend to think it’s probably true. Congratulations to the happy couple if it true – I’m sure they’re totally thrilled.

    i knew it, that’s why they hurried

  3. meme says:

    REALLY?????? What a shocker. I don’t get the fuss over her at all. Looks like a kewpie doll to me. The other angels are far prettier.

  4. fizXgirl314 says:

    she looks like a leopard… that’s ok though, he looks like a 12 year old midget…

    that being said, congratulations lol…

  5. denise says:


    I always hated the way these models bounce right back after having their babies.

  6. RobN says:

    Well at least they got married instead of doing the “fiance” thing until the kid is four years old.

    They look very happy, good luck to them both.

  7. Schozzle says:

    I don’t understand the point of shotgun weddings. It’s not 1957 and far as I can tell neither of the are super-religious or anything.

    Their babies will have some crazy elfish faces going on, no doubt.

  8. lisa says:

    I think her reps denied it. But really these mags post week after week that someone is pregnant..And then they never are. So when she decides to share this information which is no ones business especially when it true it is at the very early stages.

    Funny how they never go back and correct all the fake pregnancy stories they post.

    Gosh people can’t have any privacy. This magazine is just guessing. they don’t know squat.

  9. Tazina says:

    They must have old-fashioned morals which is quite refreshing to see. A “shot-gun” wedding. Congrats to the happy couple!

  10. Missfit says:

    Ah, figures, that didn’t take long…as everyone said…no wonder the rush, hmm. I wish them the best in parenting and in their relationship, cause no one is perfect. All we can do is the best we can to our knowledge.

  11. snowball says:

    I don’t get why there’s this, oh yeah, THAT’S why they got married so fast. Maybe they just wanted to? Why does it have to be about a pregnancy?

    There’s hardly a stigma about unwed mothers anymore, even Catholics.

    If so, awesome for them. Babies are a blessing. If not, awesome for them. They look happy together. Being with someone you love is a blessing.

    lol, elfish faces, totally. Yeah, Legolas baby!!

  12. bellaluna says:

    Is it wrong to say her head and neck look like ET in that bottom pic? ‘Cause it does. That hairstyle is seriously unflattering. Anyway, congrats.

  13. Obvious says:

    It’s going to be a beautiful and semi exotic baby if it’s true. Both parents are beautiful in their own ways. congrats to them on their wedding and their little bundle of joy-if it’s true.

  14. e says:

    Maybe she will fill out. First thing my boyfriend said when he saw her in VS was “she is way too skinny”. Anyway, they seem happy so good for them.

  15. TG says:

    So how tall is he anyway? I always heard he was pocket-size but in some of the photos he looks to be taller than her and if she is a runway model she must be at least 5’9″ I would think.

  16. Cheyenne says:

    Jesus, what’s with all the snarky comments? A baby is something to celebrate. Congratulations to both of them!

  17. canadianchick says:

    Congrats, if its true. Love me some Bloom.

  18. ligeia says:

    finally she can eat something more than a half of avocado for breakfast or whatever the hell it was she described as her diet.

  19. Rosanna says:

    boy, that was FAST LOL

  20. Tia C says:

    Well, that does explain the hasty wedding! As others have said, I don’t understand the need for a shotgun wedding in this day and age, but I guess some people are still old fashioned. Each to their own!

  21. Angelina says:

    The thought of those two bumping uglies makes my stomach sick. It would look like 2 praying mantises.

  22. Jenelle says:

    RobN: Right??

    Congrats to them both if this is true!!

    And to address all of the so called “modern” people that say that the two are “unneccesarily” getting married “just because” she’s pregnant: Orlando and Miranda have been together solidly for three years now. My guess is that they probably were going to get married with or without a pregnancy (if this is true…) God forbid people make a responsible move and wed before having a child! My advice? Just turn on the Maury Povich show once in a while and see how wonderful it is now that getting married before you have kids has become obsolete. (Yes it is an extreme, but that is the direction our society has been headed in for a while. Let’s not pretned that it all works out perfectly when people go that route lol)

  23. Madison says:

    A shotgun wedding is when you’ve only been dating 6 months and you get married when you find out your pregnant. These two have been together for three years so they must have a pretty solid relationship by now.

  24. Mistral says:

    Aww. Congrats if it’s true. I used to have a crush on Orlando in the Lord of the Rings days and want to be his wifey, lol, but Miranda is adorable and they are adorable together.

  25. Tibby says:

    I think she has the longest arms I’ve ever seen on a non-gibbon.

  26. Courtney says:

    that’s not neccessarily true about a shot gun wedding even couples that have been together over a year and find out the woman is expecting and get married quickly because of it are called shot gun. and sometimes when you expect to have a child you don’t always get to. just ask academy award winning actress Joanne Woodward for one she was expecting their first child when she married Paul Newman 29th January 1958 only to miscarry 2 weeks later during their london honeymoon. though they eventually had three daughters. god forbid Orlando & Miranda went through that they wouldn’t get the proper time needed to heal.

  27. Cheyenne says:

    Do people still talk about shotgun marriages? The last time I heard that term was back in the 1970′s.

  28. oduroyal says:

    It’s all making sense now

  29. colo says:

    wow the first photo of her is pretty bad…ahahaha supermodels take crappy photos too

  30. Mistral says:

    Correction on my comment: “wanted to be his wifey”, past tense… That crush is long past, haha. I haven’t had an imaginary “celebrity future husband” in a while…

  31. Camille says:

    Congrats if it is true, they will have a cute baby, especially if it takes after its daddy.

  32. BethL says:

    Nobody know when they got engaged. They just made the announcement of it. They could have been engaged for a year.

  33. Adrien says:

    “put her modeling career on hold to have a baby right away”.
    Don’t think Heidi Klum, Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima’s modelling careers were affected by motherhood.
    Anyway, congratulations.

  34. kaligula says:

    @ Schozzle, thanks for making me lol

  35. Beth says:

    I doubt at the pregnancy, She is too thin. And if Miranda is, then must had Orlando a very good shoot in her last night before he fly to England in the Middle of April – or he is not the Daddy.
    Some australian sources say, she is in the 15th Week. If we take now a calender and count must the fathering in the Week of her birthday – and in this Week was Orlando in England and because of a icelandic volcano not able to fly back (and she to go to Europe).
    I think, the only One which lose in this marriage is Orlando. Namely his Money.
    And I think, Miranda have to lure him into the Baby Trap for to make sure, she get marry of him.

  36. H Miracle says:

    Congratulations to Miranda and Orlando. With such beautiful people, I can’t wait to see what their kids will look like.
