Happy birthday, Miranda Kerr!
The gorgeous Australian turns the big 3-0 on April 20.
However, she’ll celebrate it without her Victoria’s Secret Angel pals — she confirmed her exit from the lingerie brand earlier this week.
“I’m just not in a position to commit to a full contract at this time… It’s three months at a bare minimum,” she said.
We’re bummed, especially since she’s one of our favorite Angels. Here’s what we’ll miss with less Miranda Kerr in the spotlight.
She shows moms that it’s OK to breast-feed in public
New moms — especially young moms — are worried about breast-feeding in public. Miranda isn’t, and she shows that it’s quite OK to feed a baby while others are around.
She’s a great mom
Miranda is all about health — and she’s just as committed to giving son Flynn (whom she had with husband Orlando Bloom) a great start in life.
“He loves the green juice,” Kerr told SheKnows of her toddler’s diet. “He loves his vegetables; he loves fish. So I’m really blessed that he likes to eat healthy. But I do believe in a balance. It’s not all about being healthy 100 percent of the time. It’s about living and enjoying.”
She’s real about her workout
Sure, the genetic gods smiled on Miranda, but she also works hard to maintain her lean and toned body.
“I was doing yoga throughout my pregnancy, and then when I gave birth, I amped up the Pilates routine and the yoga routine and did a lot of resistance training,” Kerr revealed to SheKnows. “I like to eat healthy because I feel my best when I’m putting the right nutrients into my body.”
She’s an entrepreneur
Miranda couldn’t find the type of organic skin care products that she wanted to use — so she created her own.
“I live by the philosophy that beauty starts from within, and in my line of work as a model, I pay a lot of attention to what I put into my body,” she told MindBodyGreen in 2011. “Whatever we put on our skin, soaks in. KORA Organics became a reality because I could not find a certified organic skin care brand I was truly happy with.”
She believes in continuing education
Miranda has a successful modeling career, but she also has the education to go down a different path.
“I have always been interested in wellness and I studied nutrition and health psychology,” she told MindyBodyGreen. “In fact I have just completed another course in the States and am now a certified health practitioner.”
She gives us serious workout inspiration
We mean, really. Just look at that body!
She’s real about relationships
Miranda might have snagged hottie actor Orlando Bloom, but that doesn’t mean everything in their relationship comes easily.
“Communication, honesty and patience,” she told the New York Post of what makes a good marriage.
She shows us the importance of a signature pose
Miranda is also photographed giving a sexy — yet shy — stare over her shoulder. She’s inspired us to come up with our own signature poses, too.
She’s got a cheeky side
She always seems shy and quiet, but there’s a different side to her.
“I was quite shy growing up in Australia, but I’ve always been very open and fun-loving,” she told the London Evening Standard. “There’s definitely a cheeky side that people only see behind closed doors.”
She’s always expanding her horizons
She’s got the modeling career and the skin care line, but Miranda also wants to break into acting — if the right part comes along.
“If someone approached me and it sounded interesting, I wouldn’t be opposed to it,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2011.
