Miranda Kerr reportedly goes into labor in LA (update: a baby boy?)


This is just an FYI, because our resident Orly-loonie (Sammie) isn’t around today – according to reports, Miranda Kerr has gone into labor in Los Angeles today. There is no word if she has already given birth or the sex of the baby or anything like that so far. A few weeks ago, Sammie mentioned something that is perhaps too political, but it is intriguing – neither Orly nor Miranda are American citizens, so it’s possible they wanted to give birth in America so their baby would be a citizen. An “anchor baby” if you use that term. Same thing with Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, who will likely give birth to their child in LA. Anyway, I just that I’d mention it. Here’s what’s known:

ORLANDO BLOOM’s [sic] pregnant wife MIRANDA KERR has reportedly gone into labour in Los Angeles.

The Hollywood actor married the Australian model in a secret ceremony in California in July (10) and they subsequently confirmed they are expecting their first child.

Kerr began experiencing contractions the day after Christmas (26Dec10), but it proved to be a false alarm, according to Australian newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

But the publication reports Kerr went into labour for real on Friday (07Jan11). An unnamed family member says, “We did get a text on Boxing Day (26Dec10) saying she had gone into labour but it was false alarm but I can confirm she did go into labour early this morning. I have been trying to get in touch with (Kerr’s parents) but everyone’s phones are going to message bank.”

Let’s all send our well wishes to Miranda and Orly. You know Orly is so sensitive, he’s in the room with Miranda, telling her how pretty her crowning vadge looks. He’s probably weeping already. Bless his heart.

Just breathe, Miranda. Good luck, girl!

UPDATE: Sources are now saying that Miranda has given birth to a baby boy! Mazel tov.

    “ORLANDO BLOOM’s wife pregnant wife”

    Good to see proofreading is alive and well.

  5. Johnny Depp's Girl says:


    Good luck to the Blooms. This is going to be one cute kid!

  6. brin says:

    That baby just has to be beautiful with those genes….all the best to them!

  7. Michaela-Christina says:

    sorry but if I want to read stupid, sarcastic or cruel comments, I go to the superficial. this site always was a nice and welcome contrast but in the past few weeks the jokes have become just as mean as on other gossip sites. but not as funny.

  8. Gwen says:

    Aw, the best of luck to them. Orly looks so happy with her – nice to see 🙂

  9. Obvious says:


    @Michaela-Christina who snotted in your cheerios this morning? th site is Celebitchy. bitch is in the name. deal with it. we like our Kaiser and CB full of piss and vinegar and feeling friky. they deserve it. we deserve it. don’t like it? no one is forcing you to read this site. in fact im pretty sure we’llget alogn just fine without you.

    That being said, yeesh Kaiser. as a former Orly-o (just sounds better than orly-loonie) i cant stop laughing into my coffee about your comment ,oh so true, but still h’s oh so pretty. i wish them the best of luck!

  10. krissy_kitty says:

    Can you imagine the dimples that baby is gonna have?? Congrats to the soon to be parents!

  11. Mia135 says:

    Is she the one who started the “rose quartz” skin-care line?

    Oh well, best wishes to them both; I’m sure the baby will have lovely skin.

  12. Courtney says:

    Just because the Parents are considered beautiful doesn’t mean the kid will be.first labors usually take between 10 & 20 hours though some have ben known to take longer. A model isn’t a celebrity in her case she’s just married to one. it’s not like it was 40 years ago when fathers to be still weren’t allowed in the delivery room while their girlfriend/Fiancee/wife was giving birth. particularly if there had been difficulties such as placenta Priva which necessititated a Cesearian Section as was the Case with Stella McCartney which had driven her religious father Paul to Pray she be born on the wings of an angel which led him to name his next band wings which ended up one of the most successful of the 1970’s

  13. Emmy says:

    Hope they have a healthy baby, probably going to be gorgeous.

  14. LolaBella says:

    @Courtney: Are you alright?? No mention of you know who? As soon as I saw your name I was wondering how you were going to tie Legolas to them.

    Oh Well. 😉

    Have a great day!

    ETA: Best wishes to Miranda and Orlando!

  15. Boromir's bytch says:

    Aren’t you just a wee bit full of yourself (!) if you notify the press to say you’ve gone into labor? Wouldn’t a birth announcement after the fact suit the world just fine? I like OB just fine, but stuff like this does make it harder to like his wife. Still, congrats!

    X17 She had a boy

  17. Johnny Depp's Girl says:


  18. Courtney says:

    lets agree to disagree ok She’s been my favorite since I was a little girl and will always be so lay off me for mentioning her we’re all entitled to our own oppinions. and the first part of what I said previously is also true just because Miranda and Orlando are considered beautiful doesn’t mean their kid will be

  19. Madison says:

    Not surprised it’s a boy, she gave an interview a few months ago and the reporter referred to the baby as HE. Congrats to them.

  20. Kj says:

    Can we pretty please stop calling him *shudder* Orly now since he’s a father? I never got the obsession with smashing peoples names to make couple names (like Bennifer or swiftenhaal, what sane person wants to be referred to as an entity in everyday convo?), or giving celebs dumb, made up nicknames like calling paris hilton P.Hilt. And Orly is such an awful, ugly sounding shortening of Orlando. What’s wrong with just Orlando?

    Congrats to the happy parents. I hope the baby is healthy and safe with mom and dad. I’m sure he or she will be cute as a button.

  21. TG says:

    These people are from rich countries with no visa issues why would they care if their baby is a US Citizen? I am just curious. Who is going to stop Australian from immigrating here?

  22. TrixC says:

    Honestly, this is too funny. Not everyone in the world wants to be an American citizen! If I was pregnant and in the US I would hop on the quickest plane to virtually anywhere else. If they had a choice, what kind of parent would want to doom their child to a lifetime of global unpopularity?!

  23. ummmmmmm says:

    trixC, being an American has never affected my ability to be happy or be successful. i must inform you that i, and most other Americans, are doing GREAT despite our “global unpopularity”! hahahha. jokes on you for sure!

  24. Jacquie says:

    I really never imagined her with a boy. I don’t know why but its weird to me. Best wishes though!

  25. N says:

    Is their celebrity-name Orlanda??

  26. LolaBella says:

    @N: Mirlando?

    Or how about Bloomerr?? LOL.

    sometimes she looks so plain to me, but in the head on shots she’s really striking.

  27. lisa says:


    I don’t keep track of that many celebs. but I was thrown. For some reason I thought she was not that far along.

    Well they welcome a healthy baby. that is all that matters.

  28. Matt says:

    Sorry but the immigration conspiracy theory is a bit much. They both get special visas in their lines of work, and generate lots of tax Dollars for Americans in the process. Also, I could be wrong, but I don’t think having a baby in the US would automatically qualify you to be a citizen- it doesn’t work that way in oz or UK ( I am a citizen of UK and soon to have dual citizenship in Oz).

  29. Crash2GO2 says:

    No, I wouldn’t think at all that having a baby here would give you citizenship. But it would give it to the baby, and perhaps make things a little easier for them when it comes to keeping/renewing their visas?

    All I know is, my boyfriend is having a horrible time with US immigration. They can be a nightmare, so any little leg up you can get, can’t hurt! And the reason folks want citizenship here is because America is still the place to make money.

  30. Matt says:

    @ crash, sorry to hear about your boyfriends visa issues, I know how stressful and frustratingly slow these processes are!

    From experiences with friends in similar situations I don’t think that even the baby would have automatic citizenship being born in the US. Plus I doubt these two would ever have visa issues and may not want to be American citizens ( no offence meant to anyone). Miranda has said in interviews that she wants to have a family and live back in gunnedah (Australia, the town where all her family live) .

  31. Susan says:

    Just to clarify, as a lawyer myself, a child born in the United States is a U.S. citizen regardless of the citizenship of parents. It’s one of the unique facets of U.S. citizenship and something that most countries don’t do. Also, being from a wealthy, western country has no impact on ability to get a visa. In fact, it can make it more difficult. Having said that, I doubt that Orlando and Miranda wanted to benefit personally from doing this, but rather they thought it would give their child more options in the future as he will likely be able to claim dual (triple?) citizenship in both the U.S. and his parents’ countries. Just because Miranda and Orlando can get a visa to work here due to the uniqueness of their jobs, doesn’t mean that they have long term residency rights nor that their child would have the same right without citizenship.

  32. jemshoes says:

    Awww! I wonder if bubs will get her gorgeous cheeks and dimples?! And his curly hair? Too cute!

    Congratulations to them! 🙂

  33. JQ says:

    @TrixC: Well then come on down to China! That’s where I live and will be stuck giving birth. I’m an American, married to a Chinese man. As an American, you can have your baby here and have it declared a US citizen. It is what we will definitely do. I wish we could go to the states to have it but we don’t have enough time between now and then (due at end of April) to get my husband a proper visa there (I hear ya @ Crash btw…geez is it annoying to deal with visas). We’re having a hard enough time with our trip to Singapore next week. Chinese law requires my husband to get a visa to go there. He’s had the paperwork with these folks for almost 3 weeks. Flight is on Wednesday and they STILL haven’t given him a visa. I’m almost tempted to stay in Singapore to have the baby, quite honestly, except for being apart from my husband and the hot climate.

  34. Matt says:

    Thanks for clarifying Susan! Very interesting that a child has an automatic birth right to citizenship in the US regardless of parents nationality! That is very unusual compared to other western systems. I still don’t think the blooms would have any need to be american citizens. Congrats to both of them though!

  35. PD says:

    @Crash: I’m a Canadian and proud, but my husband is an American citizen so I had to get my residency to live there since he was U.S. military at the time. We had to move from East Coast to Hawaii. That made it fun to send our paperwork all around but military made it easier and it was still brutal and took us over 2 years. In the meantime I wasn’t allowed to leave the country so I didn’t see the majority of my fam/friends. I totally feel your issue, good luck. Eventually things work out.

  36. DD says:

    I never really thought about it much, I’m not american though I just automatically assumed that a baby gets citizenship in most western countries if they are born there, even in my own country. Guess I’ll have to look that up.
    Congratulations to them, and I hope Orlando starts making more movies because I miss this piece of eye candy

  37. Victoria says:

    @JQ: Here’s an early welcome to you for your impending trip to Singapore! Hope your husband gets his visa status approved soon!

  38. anti says:

    they look very happy together! Congrats!

  39. Cheyenne says:

    @Matt: American citizenship for people born in the United States is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Five states have introduced bills trying to take away that right and none of them have a chance of being enacted into law because they are unconstitutional.

  40. Solveig says:

    *I pictured her face in the pains of labour and I just run hiding under the bed. Her face is creepy*

    Congrats to them.

  41. truthzbetta says:

    Before he was hot enough, blond or brown haired, to ROCK that outfit.

    Something about letting his grooming mushroom out of control from head to jaw has sucked his sexy away.
