Not only is Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom’s little baby Flynn Christopher one of the most adorable tots in Hollywood, but it seems even the truth behind his name is cute too, if not a little tragic.
In an emotional interview the supermodel mum revealed how she used an old boyfriend as inspiration for her baby’s name. And before you jump the gun, thinking Orlando should be worried by such a tribute, it turns out that the ex, Christopher, was the 28-year-old’s first love who sadly died in a car accident when they were teenagers. Miranda spilled, “Chris and I had been dating for two years. After he died, I wrote him a letter that said I hoped to name my first child after him in some way. I told Orlando and he was the one who said he’d be happy to do that. Orlando’s a good guy.” And Flynn is poignant too – it’s the name of the actor’s grandmother, who passed shortly after the newborn was conceived.
