As far as celebrity children go, there is no limit to the number of personalities out there. One of them is Flynn Christopher Bloom, the only child born out of Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr’s short marriage. Unlike other celebrity children like Blue Ivy and North West, Flynn mostly keeps a low profile.
As always, the scarcity of information has increased people’s curiosity about him. Out of the limited amount of available information about Flynn, we have compiled some facts about the lad, giving an accurate picture of who he truly is.
His Mother Named Him After Her Ex-Boyfriend
Flynn Christopher Bloom was born on January 6, 2011, in Los Angeles, California. He was born in an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles, less than a year into the marriage between Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr. The boy was a healthy child on delivery, weighing 9lb 12Oz.
While most people would balk at the idea of their wife naming their son after her ex-boyfriend, a special circumstance allowed for an exemption. According to Miranda, she had promised her ex she would name her first child after him in some way.
She and her ex, a man named Christopher, dated for two years before he passed away. After he died, she wrote him a letter making the promise. After a conversation with Orlando Bloom, who agreed to the decision, she named him Christopher. His full name is Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom.
His Parents Have Maintained a Peaceful Co-Parenting Since their Divorce
Often, when couples get divorced, the child(ren) bears the brunt of the separation. It is usually easier to deal with when the child is old enough, but Flynn never got that chance. His parents started dating in late 2007, and they got engaged in June 2010. Less than six months after getting married in July, Flynn was born.
He was just a few months shy of his third birthday when his parents announced their separation in October 2013, completing their divorce by the end of the year. Flynn Christopher Bloom has, however, been lucky enough to avoid the pitfalls of this separation.
According to his father, Orlando, amidst their separation, they had a strong agreement to stay in each other’s lives for Flynn. In an interview with Howard Stern, he admitted it has not been easy, as they both started seeing other people. Still, they have made it work and have been happy as co-parents.
Flynn’s mother, Miranda, went further to say Orlando is family to her. Not just a father to her child and ex-husband but like a brother whom she cares deeply for. Their peaceful and thriving co-existence has meant Flynn can enjoy the love from two families, even picking favorites without any malice.
He Considers Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry to be the Fun Couple
Flynn Christopher Bloom’s parents have moved on with new partners. His father is engaged to pop star, Katy Perry, while Miranda Kerr is with Snapchat CEO, Evan Spiegel. Thanks to the couple’s joint custody arrangement, Flynn has had a chance to pick out which couple he enjoys spending the most time with.
According to the actor, the answer to that question is Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry. He revealed his son’s preference while showering praise on his fiancée’s ability to come up with ideas and ways to spend the time. He mentioned that even his son recognizes her talent and considers them ‘the fun couple.’
One of these fun experiences includes a trip to Egypt in October 2019 for Katy Perry’s birthday. It was an enjoyable and memorable trip that did not only earn them their title but also led to one of Flynn Christopher Bloom’s siblings’ conception. And while Miranda Kerr and Evan might not enjoy losing the fun parents tag to Bloom, they can take blissful comfort that they have given him the most siblings.
Flynn Christopher Bloom Has Three Siblings from His Parents’ Relationships
He is the only child of his biological parents, but he has gotten a couple of siblings from his parents’ new relationships. Two of his three half-siblings have come from his mother’s marriage to Evan Spiegel. They gave birth to their first child, a son named Hart Spiegel in 2018, less than a year into their wedding.
Evan and Miranda got married in May 2017 after their engagement in July 2016. One year after getting his first sibling, Flynn welcomed another brother, Myles, in October 2019. His only sister is from his father’s relationship with Katy Perry.
Although they are yet to walk the aisle, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry have given birth to a daughter named Daisy Dove Bloom. She was born on August 26, 2020, after her impending arrival was announced in March 2020 through the music video for Never Worn White.
Flynn is Heir to a Combined Fortune of $100 Million
It is a fortune that is still growing, and with three siblings, he will have to split it a few ways. Yet, Flynn Christopher Bloom is set to inherit a lot of money from his parents’ multimillionaire status. His father has an estimated net worth of $40 million while his mum, Miranda Kerr, is worth $60 million.
His British father, Orlando, is an actor who has been featured in some commercially successful epic movies. They include the epic trilogies, Lord of the Rings (2001 to 2003), and its follow up series, The Hobbit (2013-2014). There are also the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Romeo and Juliet, Carnival Row, and so on. Some of his film appearances are some of the highest-grossing films of all time.
On the other hand, Miranda Kerr is an Australian supermodel who has walked famous runways like Paris Fashion and New York Fashion. She has also covered many fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle, Rolling Stones, among others.
Kerr has modeled for brands like Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, H&M, and Victoria Secret. The adorable mother of three also owns a skincare line called Kora, which churns out about 24 organic products in not less than 25 countries for both men and women.
The Lad Helped His Father Find Emotional and Professional Balance
Flynn Christopher Bloom will continue to receive a lot from his parents, with a sizeable share of $100 million to come. However, in his little way, he has given back, especially to his father. The Pirates of the Caribbean actor credits his son for helping him find emotional and professional balance.
Orlando Bloom grew up believing a man, Harry Bloom, a South African anti-apartheid activist who died when he was four, was his father. When he was 13 years old, however, his mother revealed to him that it was not true, that a family friend, Colin Stone, is his real father.
The emotional rollercoaster that followed stayed with him into his adult years, until Flynn arrived. His birth helped resolve some emotional struggles and helped Orlando find peace. In turn, the actor has incorporated lessons from the saga into how he is raising his children.
