Australian beauty Miranda Kerr has become one of the most recognisable faces on the planet, thanks to the long and successful career she has had in the modelling industry, working with some of the top names that the modelling business has to offer. Miranda has also made headlines over the years, for her marriage to Orlando Bloom, with whom she has six-year-old son Flynn. With the couple no longer being together, Miranda has been talking about what it is like to juggle her work life with motherhood.
Kerr shared, "It's a constant juggle. But it has become easier with time and learning to prioritise and not overcommit myself. We have to remember it's okay to say no. I try and minimise my travel as much as possible. When you become a mom, the most important thing is your child, and you try to work everything in and around what is best for them. The first few months [and years] are a huge adjustment for any new parent, but I was lucky in some respects that my job has flexibility. I wasn't governed by working 9-to-5, so I could ease myself back into everything, and I had a supportive, respectful, and understanding team."
She added, "There is nothing better than picking my son up from school and seeing his little face light up. It is joy and love in the purest form. I think the most challenging part is the responsibility of raising a child to be the best versions of themselves, to have courage, manners, and to be kind. Thinking back, the sleep deprivation for the first year was pretty challenging, but being a mother is my biggest honour and joy; the sleepless nights were well worth it."
Fortunately for Miranda Kerr, she does have some help on hand, as she is now married to Evan Spiegel, with the couple expected to grow their family in the near future.
