Miranda Kerr: Flynn Named After Late Boyfriend

Miranda Kerr: Flynn Named After Late Boyfriend

Miranda Kerr has explained the meaning of her son Flynn‘s full name.

The 28-year-old Aussie model opened up to The Telegraph about why she chose to name her son Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom, partially after her first boyfriend Christopher Middlebrook, who passed away at a young age.

Chris and I had been dating for two years,” Miranda said. “After he died, I wrote him a letter that said I hoped to name my first child after him in some way. I told [husband] Orlando [Bloom] and he was the one who said he’d be happy to do that. Orlando’s a good guy.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Flynn’s name being a tribute to his mom’s first boyfriend?

    I’m sorry.. she was dating the guy. And yes she liked the name, but she has no idea what may have happened with she and the guy down the line.

    I don’t find that sweet or anything. Donate to a charity every year in his name. but don’t put that on your child with another man.

    Orlando is a fool.. Sorry but that is a bit much. She should have kept that private. Especially since the man was not a part of her child’s life.

    That is one cute & adorable baby! No surprise considering the parents are both hot! I like the name Flynn. As long as Orlando is ok with the reason behind the name choice then there is nothing more to add. I wish them all the best!

    Naming a child particially after somebody special in your life is pretty normal as is it to name them after a favorite entertainer or a place significant in your life. Flynn is a cute baby for sure like for example if I named a daughter of mine London Emma London is my favorite european Capital and Emma is my maternal grandmothers confirmation name.

    @karen:

    They had been dating two years and he was obviously important to her. Honoring him with giving Flynn his name for a middle name is a nice tribute.

    What a shame you can’t see it and are so bitter about it. Orlando thinks it is great as does Miranda and their opinions are the only two that matter anyhow.

    An open letter to Miranda Kerr Says:

    Salutations Ms. Kerr,
    It is our duty and deepest regret to inform you that you are, in fact, not the only woman in history to have ever given birth. The truth is, I’m sorry to say, that BILLIONS of woman have also done so since the dawn of time. Also, unfortunately for you, the act of giving birth does NOT make you a better woman or more than a woman in comparison to women who have never given birth, it simply means that you have completed a biological process. A monkey is capable of doing this as well. It simply means that all you have accomplished is proving that you are able to spread your legs so that a man may deposit his sperm into your birth canal, one of said sperm was able to fertilize a ripened egg that your body produced and that egg then became a growth that attached itself to your uterine wall where it fed off your body for nine months as it grew. Sort of like cancer. When the time came your doctor cut the growth out of your womb, slapped it and it cried, thusly it was declared a baby. By the way, monkeys know how to nurse their young as well. Not that you actually nursed your cancer, excuse me, baby. You were too busy recovering from your breast augmentation surgery. What you did was have your mother take a photograph of you pressing your augmented breast to a sleeping baby’s face so that you could post the photo to your cosmetic company’s website in order to drive traffic. In short, we are on to you and ask you to kindly shut your pie hole. You are not an uber-woman. You are merely a woman.
    No love,
    The rest of the women in the world

    P.S.
    Naming your kid after your dead f**k buddy is bad form. You are a bad wife.
