Our warmest, hugest congratulations to lovely new parents Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom on the arrival of their first baby son! The 27-year-old supermodel and Victoria Secret’s Angel gave birth on Friday at a Los Angeles hospital with Bloom and her parents by her side. The healthy – and needless to say adorable! – baby boy weighed in at 10 pounds and both mother and son are said to be doing “very well”, according to Kerr’s overjoyed grandmother. Kerr had been spotted shopping for boy clothes the week before. In a move that took everyone by surprise, the model not only continued to work throughout her pregnancy but upped her modelling credentials with shoots for her home country's Australian Vogue, the prerequisite 'pregnant nude' for W magazine and an appearance at Balenciaga's fashion show in September (see below).
The news broke when Orlando was overheard by a photographer boasting about his son but no name has been released yet. So, simply because we think Kerr and Bloom make an adorable couple, Grazia HQ has thought long and hard about what Baby Bloom’s first name should be. So far, we have come up with; Basil Bloom, Full Bloom, Billy Bloom, Bailey Bloom, Bean Bloom, Babar Bloom and lastly, in honour of the cooler-than-thou fashion house that Miranda walked for back in September, Balenciaga Bloom. Phew – now that we’ve used up all our morning’s brainpower we leave it up to you. Suggestions below, please and Miranda and Orlando, you’re welcome!
