"Pirates of the Caribbean" star Orlando Bloom has got himself a real-life treasure: newborn son Flynn, who arrived earlier this month.
"On the 6th of January I gave birth to our beautiful little son Flynn," Bloom's supermodel wife, Miranda Kerr, writes on her Kora organics website.
"He weighed 9lb 12 ounces (a very healthy and big baby boy). I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour[.] But Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him.”
Bloom, 33, and Kerr, 27, have been dating since 2007 and married in a hush-hush July 2010 ceremony. In 2008, Kerr spoke about her desire to become a mother.
"My ideal situation would be to live on a farm in a solar-powered house with a hammock and a vegetable patch," she said. "When this is all over, that's where I'll be. I've always wanted kids, so someday, eventually, yes, it will happen."
That day is here and the couple couldn't be more thrilled.
"We are so happy and are enjoying our time together as a family," writes Kerr. "He is our little ray of sunshine."
