Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom had a baby in January and named him Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom, what we find out now is that their baby's name is after someone very special to Miranda's heart.
In high school Miranda's boyfriend was Christopher Middlebrook, died in a car accident when he was a teenager.

“Chris and I had been dating for two years,” she says. “After he died, I wrote him a letter that said I hoped to name my first child after him in some way. I told Orlando, and he was the one who said he’d be happy to do that. Orlando’s a good guy.”
Miranda Kerr shows off her baby bump in the December issue of W magazine as part of the magazine's "Family Issue." The 27 year-old Victoria's Secret model married actor Orlando Bloom in July.
"We’re keeping it a surprise,” she says. Though her modeling stock has risen (she’s currently fronting campaigns for Jil Sander, Prada, and Victoria’s Secret), Kerr has no issues with putting her professional ambitions on hold. “My career has been wonderful, but it’s not my life. I don’t feel pressure to get back to work.” As for the long-term future, the Aussie native has conceived a rustic plan for domestic bliss: “My goal involves a hammock, a vegetable patch, and a solar-powered house. And I hope to eventually get there.”
Kerr is 6 and a half months pregnant with her first child.
