Miranda Kerr is expecting her third child just 10 months after giving birth to Hart Spiegel

2018 LACMA Art + Film Gala - Arrivals

Some days, I’m caught off-guard by how much or how little actual time has passed in a celebrity’s life. You know what I mean? Like, it felt like Jessica Simpson was pregnant for a year and a half. But I thought Miranda Kerr gave birth to Hart Spiegel a couple of years ago. But no – she only gave birth to Hart in May 2018. Ten months later and Miranda is knocked up again by her Snapchat CEO husband, Evan Spiegel.

Miranda Kerr is going to be a mom — again! Just 10 months after Kerr, 35, and her husband Evan Spiegel welcomed their first child together, a son named Hart, the Australian model and the Snapchat CEO, 28, are expecting another baby.

“Miranda, Evan, Flynn and Hart are looking forward to welcoming the newest member to their family,” a rep for Kerr tells PEOPLE. Kerr is also mom to 8-year-old son Flynn with ex-husband Orlando Bloom.

If this was someone else, I might suggest that perhaps there had been a birth control mix-up because yikes, putting your body through two pregnancies in quick succession isn’t ideal. But I think in Miranda’s case, she probably wanted to do two babies quickly, the Snapchat heir and spare, maybe. Other theory: she’s ready for a daughter after two boys and she didn’t want to wait (especially given the fact that she’s seven years older than Evan). In any case, congrats to them, I guess. Can’t wait for even more Snapchat testimonials from Miranda.

    It’s uncommon now to see back to back pregnancies like that but it really used to be the norm! My brothers and I are a tiny bit over a year apart… so my mom was basically constantly pregnant and caring for newborns for 3 years. She always said it was easier that way – once we were all out of diapers she was done for good 😂 and once we were all in school we’d pretty much be in the same schools. All that to say- it’s not THAT damaging to her body. And it’s not like she has a full time 9-5 job so she has the luxury to indulge in self-care.

    Congrats to Miranda and her growing family!

      My mother had 5 kids in 7 years, I have a brother who is 11 months younger than me. I didn’t like it growing up, all the chaos and never feeling like I got undivided attention from anybody. My kids are 7 years apart, not planned, I had a miscarriage between them. In retrospect it worked out for us because each child got a lot of attention when they were small, and I didn’t feel overwhelmed. I know what I can handle and can’t handle.

    Is it wrong that my thought was her pre-nup has baby bonuses written in – ie she gets more money in a split if there’s multiple kids?

    • runcmc says:

      This is probably mean and wrong but she does not seem to me like the kind of woman who would sign a prenup. She seems like the kind of woman who would effectively convince a billionaire that they didn’t need one.

    • Millennial says:

      I bet she’s thinking more kids means more child support when they inevitable divorce so yeah.

      I wouldn’t have such mercenary thoughts about her, but she has flirted with some really ugly billionaires to get jewelry so if the shoe fits.

      • Bee says:

        Models come and go, but her billionaire hustling is the one thing she’ll be remembered for. All that dirty money jewellery gifted from shady rich men really exposed her game.

      • Theflint says:

        I think she’s a puddle of sweetness and the millionaire/yacht thing is part of her “spirituality,” as in like The Secret (check out summaries of Treasure Yourself, her book). I really don’t think there’s anything dark and scheming about her as far as she’s aware. I think she thinks it’s all just about getting ahead, nicely, in life. Not super sophisticated and very acquisitive and literal. Modelling isn’t a stable livelihood for most models but if you’re fairly successful you get used to the private jet thing but you’re probably only set to retire with a relatively modest fortune unless you hook a big one. Randomly, my friend used to attend modelling auditions, whatever they’re called, with her in Australia and she said she was a really sweet girl.

    • Mia4s says:

      Given the tales about how she’s supplemented her income in the past in the company she kept…no, no it’s not mean.

      Always nice to see pretty girls with no talent lock in that income though! Bless. 😏

      • TQ says:

        @Mia4s Agreed!

      • Nicegirl says:

        But those are ‘tales’ . . .

        So we don’t know.

        I know we’re all commenting gossips here but it seems both of those insinuations from my fellow gossipers are harsh.

      • Theflint says:

        The thing is, she was fairly wealthy from her modelling years and didn’t need to do stuff like that. But as a high-flying model, you get used to a certain lifestyle.

    • hkk says:

      I thought the same thing… making sure the cs check will be bigger when the divorce happens. strange lives these people live.

  3. Lex says:

    Haha i hate the phrasing of “going to be a mum… again!”

    Like no. You’re a mum forever into perpetuity. It doesnt pause and then reignite once knocked up again.

  4. Kiitypride says:

    Miranda in the most recent pictures I saw looks at least 3-4 months along.

    But I personally think if the mom is healthy and rich why not have babies close in age.

  5. minx says:

    Love her dress and she looks gorgeous. Spiegel looks slightly better than usual, but he still seems like a frat boy.

  6. Melly says:

    You get that eventual divorce/child support money, girl!

  7. Tanya says:

    She’s 35. If they want 2+ kids, it’s not a bad idea to have a tight spacing. I had my first at 33, and I would have had more if we hadn’t run out of time.

  8. Desolee says:

    Wow that’s a great dress on her. With her interesting simple boy names I wonder what she’d name a girl if she has one.

  9. Miss M says:

    She is 35?! I thought she was at least 38.

  10. Tootsie McJingle says:

    My kids are 13 months apart (now 3 and 4). They are best friends which is awesome, but the beginning when they were both babies but in a different way (a newborn vs a 1 year old) was tough. It’s getting easier as they get older. And yeah the younger one was not on purpose (but she’s amazingly wonderful and I am so grateful it happened the way it did!). I don’t think I would do that on purpose again. It was tough basically being pregnant for two years!

  11. CharliePenn says:

    Just for kicks I’ll tell you this:

    My grandmother had eight babies in the span of ten years and one day. It was almost ten years on the nose from when she had baby #1 until baby #8.
    It absolutely amazes me.

    She very sadly passed away when they were all still children. I always wonder the toll it took on her body to have been pregnant or in a postpartum state for ten years straight. She was Irish Catholic so it wasn’t uncommon… but my mom told me that mothers in a bad state, and mothers who are mentally very unwell was also not uncommon in these huge Irish Catholic families, in the 1950s and 60s.

    I did two babies in juuust under three years and i will never be the same. I have long term hip and pelvic damage!

    • BeanieBean says:

      Very similar story for my Irish grandmother. My own mother had my brother & me at 16 months apart. No financial incentives etc etc as being insinuated for Miranda; she (& my dad) wanted her kids to be close in age, that’s it. And we were best friends growing up. When, how, if to have children is an individual choice & the allegations against Miranda are downright mean (yes, yes, yes, I know it’s a gossip site).

    • Theflint says:

      Thanks for sharing about your grandmother. On the pelvic damage, I recently read about French mothers getting free pelvic training classes after birth. Apparently it works and in France it’s just a given you do it after birth. The official term is perineal re-education.

      • Arpeggi says:

        It’s not just in France, it’s available in many other EU countries, though I don’t think it was available in the 80s when my mom had my brother and me. I often hear her and my aunt talk about small leaks and stuff like that and she had a small case of bladder prolapse recently and I had to yell at her to go see a doctor. I find it so frustrating that generations of women just assume that it’s normal to feel loose, suffer from leaks and so on when it’s not the case and doesn’t have to be. I wish women and MDs didn’t feel shy about talking about such things, it should be normal

    • Arpeggi says:

      WHO recommendations are that women should space pregnancies by 18 months for that specific reason: rich or poor, well-nourished or not, pregnancies and post-partum recovery take a toll on our bodies. Of course, it’s probably easier when you have money and access to proper healthcare and childcare (whether paid or from family/friends), but it’s still rough and yes, it makes sense that your grandma’s health was affected by so many pregnancies in such a short time. That being said, women have the right to choose when they’ll get pregnant again and luckily now, it actually can be a choice.

  12. Millie says:

    My eldest was 9 months old when I got pregnant with my youngest. We planned it that way it was amazing how much shade I got from people who assumed the second pregnancy wasn’t planned or that we hadn’t thought through what it would be like to have two kids in diapers. My friends who have similar spacing with their kids faced the same thing. The judgement is so weird and I don’t understand where it’s coming from.

    • Kate says:

      There’s nothing people like to judge more than other people’s childbearing and childrearing.

  13. Hmm says:

    How embarrassing..

  14. Andrea says:

    His university days are ughh…another frat boy.

  15. Ana says:

    I have an 8yr old and a (surprise-baby) 8mo …I was so comfortable being mom to an only child, although I didn’t know it back then xD… I am grateful they are so far apart in age, I know I would’ve never made it without a legion of nannies and helpers.

  16. ZGB says:

    She is very pretty. No comments about the baby situation except, it happens.

  17. Reeta Skeeter says:

    She’s stunning and makes absolutely beautiful babies. Congratulations Miranda!

  18. Gen says:

    She is a hundred times more beautiful than me. She is famous. She has (a lot) of money while I have debt.
    But still, my husband is hotter than hers. :P

  19. Chandrika Campbell says:

    I’m thinking James Packer did the snip snip. She was trying hard with that one.

  20. Lala11_7 says:

    I am a TRUE believer of having them REALLY close together…if you can’t get twins….It’s YEARS between me and my siblings…and I really missed out on getting to know them growing up…..
