At the time of writing, Kerr, 36, is heavily pregnant with her third child, her second with husband and Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel, 29. She’s also mum to Flynn, 8, her son with ex-husband Orlando Bloom, and one-year-old Hart, her first child with Spiegel.

As always when Kerr is speaking about her babies – even the ones she hasn’t given birth to yet – her voice floods with joy. Her two boys can’t wait to welcome a new addition to the family, judging by how devoted they are to each other. “Flynn is madly in love with Hart,” she says proudly. “He really wanted a little baby brother so much. There hasn’t been any jealousy or anything. It’s been very sweet. And when Flynn walks in the room, Hart lights up like a light bulb.”
Not that this pregnancy has been a dream from start to finish. Even supermodels suffer when those early pregnancy hormones take hold. “I feel good now,” she says of carrying her current little one, who is due later this year. “But there was a lot of morning sickness in the beginning. It was probably the harder pregnancy out of the three. Flynn was very smooth sailing. With Hart, I had a little bit of morning sickness. But with this little one I’ve had terrible morning sickness. But I’m feeling good now and it’s not long to go now, which is exciting.”

You get the impression that it wouldn’t matter how difficult or otherwise her pregnancies turned out to be, there’s nothing Kerr wouldn’t go through to be a mother – and while she's juggling a stellar career as a model and mogul, her kids always come first. It’s this attitude that drives the unusually amicable relationship she has with Bloom, who she divorced in 2013 after three years of marriage, and his fiancée, singer Katy Perry.
The two families are so relaxed with each other that they recently took a holiday to Italy together. Perry also attended Kerr’s most recent Kora Organics launch in Malibu, for her newest product, Noni Bright Vitamin C serum in July. “We are all very close and Flynn is our absolute priority,” Kerr says, adding that more joint jaunts are on the horizon. “We celebrate Christmas and Easter together. We’re family!”
