Miranda Kerr has revealed that her son Flynn Christopher was named after her childhood sweetheart who died in a tragic car accident.
The model explained that she promised that her first-born would bear her ex-boyfriend’s name.
Kerr, who gave birth to her first child with husband Orlando Bloom seven months ago, told Daily Telegraph that her former lover Christopher Middlebrook died in a car crash when he was just a teenager.
“After he died, I wrote him a letter that said I hoped to name my first child after him in some way.”
The 28-year-old added that Bloom was “happy” to use the name.
