After being painted a picture of calm, emotionally gratifying, virtually pain free celebrity baby times, it’s refreshing to hear that model Miranda Kerr childbirth story is exactly like we imagine ours will be. “I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body. I kept thinking, ‘How do women do this?’ But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined,” the bride of Orlando Bloom admitted to InStyle about her natural childbirth this past January. “I was looking down on myself Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the pain was so intense.” Yeah, we want to float outside our bodies when have our teeth cleaned. We’d literally travel to the astral plane if we had to go through labor without a half-dozen epidurals.
One reason that Kerr’s birth to baby Flynn was so traumatic is that the kid emerged practically toddler-sized. “[Flynn is] a big baby, 4.5 kilograms [almost 10 pounds] at birth,” Miranda explained. “And I thought to myself, ‘I have so much more that I want to do aside from modeling. I can live with my body not being in shape if I have a healthy son. It’s worth it.’ ” But, as you might of guessed, Kerr is already back modeling for Victoria Secret’s, which is how you know this is still a famous person’s baby story.
