Miranda Kerr: Grandma urged pregnancy effort

The Victoria’s Secret model has 16-month-old son Flynn with her husband Orlando Bloom. Her elderly relative was full of advice on how she should handle the pregnancy.

“She was like, ‘Now, love, don’t let yourself go,’” Miranda laughed.

“Men are very visual and I think it’s important that you wake up in the morning and get yourself together. Don’t slop around the house all day in your pajamas. It’s true! They tell you, ‘It doesn’t matter what you wear or what you look like, I love you anyway,’ but they notice when you make a little effort for them.”

The 29-year-old star has an enviably toned body, but wants fans to know she works hard to keep in shape. She does yoga and Pilates daily and also takes health supplements such as goji berries and aloe vera juices.

“Working 16, 17 hours, you need to know how to take care of yourself or you’ll fall off the wagon. I know it’s clichéd but I feel health is wealth,” she told the latest edition of UK Vogue.

“I was lucky for a while there, I just did yoga. Now I’m exercising a whole lot more, but it’s for my job. It is a lot of work!”
