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.
The 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards took place last night at Lincoln Center in New York City. The show saw some serious fashionista traffic, but we have to admit we expected it to be a tad more A-List. Still, can’t complain with the likes of Alessandra Ambrosio in a red-hot Prabal Gurung dress and Liv Tyler in an unusual Proenza Schouler silk printed sheath. Both ladies showed a fair amount of back! We also loved Kerry Washington‘s simple white A-Line Calvin Klein dress and Lucy Liu‘s dramatic black Monique Lhuillier gown. Miranda Kerr looked heart-stoppingly sexy in her black Michael Kors skirt and cut-out body suit. But the big winner of the night was Lady Gaga who scooped up the Fashion Icon Award, bringing her sister Natali Germanotta as her date.
Unfortunately, there were a couple of fashion fails as well. Chloe Sevigny looked like she had forgotten to do up the top of her leather ruffle eyelet blouse from her own collection. Marcia Cross wore an inexplicable Pamella Roland blue sequined halter jumpsuit and Naomi Watts looked generically pretty but very blah in her Calvin Klein gold dress. We also love us some Ashley Greene but she just wasn’t working her two-tone Michael Kors dress, like a pregnant Jessica Alba worked the same trend in DVF. Perhaps it’s because Ashley’s clunky shoes were all wrong. One look at Gerard Butler in his snug, extremely well-cut suit, and all was well again. Get the full skinny by looking at our gallery below.

It’s kind of hard to believe that the person on the left is Miranda Kerr. The supermodel mom arrived in Korea, where she’s visiting just for a day, yesterday because of work. She squeezed in an interview with a Korean channel called MBC where she wore a traditional costume called a hanbok. As you can see, she’s completely swathed in the outfit and more covered up than we we’ve ever seen her, since she’s normally in swimsuits, lingerie or tiny dresses (cue picture right)! Miranda tweeted, “Just finished my interview on MBC in traditional korean Han Bok. So much fun!” She’s still working the hanbok, though, but that’s what supermodels do. So unfair!

New mom/God’s masterpieceÃ‚Â Miranda Kerr has been looking so seriously svelt lately that we’d startedÃ‚Â thinking thatÃ‚Â theÃ‚Â whole pregnancy thing was a hoax. But the latest member of the Platinum Super-MILF Club appeared on Conan last night and offered up some intimate details that made us change our tune.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I had made my mind up that I was going to have a natural birthÃ¢â‚¬Â¦then the doctors said Ã¢â‚¬ËœOk, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to have to be induced because thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not enough fluid for the baby,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ so I was induced,” she told Conan. “And then, it was 27 hours later with not one drop [of pain medication] because IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d been determined IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d do it.” 27 HOURS YOU GUYS! Think about the worst day you’ve ever had, and then add 3 hours to that!
And it was no walk in the park for husband Orlando Bloom, either. Ã¢â‚¬Å“He was there every moment by my side, I mean I never even let him go to the bathroom. I made him pee in a bottle.” Damn, that’s pretty intense. But after seeing pics of her at yesterday’s Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Summer Edition launch, we realized that we’d happilyÃ‚Â shun plumbing for the rest of our lives if it meant we could be married to her. Check out the gallery below and see what we mean!

Look at that little jetsetter! Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr took their newborn son Flynn to Paris last month, and yesterday the 3-month-old made his NY debut, to the delight of the local paparazzi. And no secretive carriage for this kid—Flynn spent the entire trip from their LA home to their NY apartment clutched to one of his parent’s chests, probably wondering what all the flickering lights were about. With Miranda already modeling bikinis again, it probably won’t be long until Flynn’s next flight.
