Miranda Kerr named her baby after boyfriend who died

Miranda Kerr has revealed that she named her baby after an old boyfriend who passed away.

Miranda, who recently had baby Flynn with actor Orlando Bloom, wanted to pay tribute to her late former boyfriend, who she dated as a teen.

“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,” Miranda told Australia’s Daily Telegraph newspaper.

“I told Orlando and he was the one who said he’d be happy to do that. Orlando’s a good guy.”

Six-month-old Flynn’s full name is Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom.
