We might not have any use for it, but that is not necessarily going to stop us lusting after the awesome gift that Ellen DeGeneres gave Victoria's secret Angel Miranda Kerr on ‘Ellen’ yesterday. It’s an Angel Wing baby carrier for her fifteen month-old son with Orlando Bloom!
Now, we appreciate that the gift might, in practice, be even more irritating than a wheelie suitcase on the tube, but frankly that pales into insignificance when one takes a look at all the fresh shizzle on this ride. Look! There’s a mirror, hair brush and straighteners to keep those glossy locks in check, pockets for all manner of half-finished cosmetics to ensure that Mummy is catwalk-ready and, of course, the most epic pair of angel wings we have ever seen.
Miranda thanked Ellen by telling her ‘this is genius! Every mother needs one of these’ as well as by gifting the talkshow queen with a Victoria’s Secret bikini, which though undoubtedly lovely is not something we can exactly see Ms DeGeneres sporting – and nor can she, as she tactfully says ‘it would look good on Portia [de Rossi, her wife]’.
Miranda, of course, gave birth to Flynn fifteen months ago after marrying Orlando Bloom in July 2010. The model revealed on the show that their son is now thirty-five pounds (is this heavy? The audience seems to think so; we’re uncertain) and, therefore, might be a touch too big for said carrier. However, if Flynn IS a mite too hefty for his new toy, Miranda could always share his epic ride with her pregnant fellow Victoria's Secret Angels, Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima and Lily Aldridge. Right? Actually, we may have stumbled on something here...
