“I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it. I could not have done it without him.” – mommy Miranda on the birth of her first child.

“He’s a great kid. I love it. He’s wonderful [and] laughs more than he cries – we’re very lucky.” – proud papa Orlando on his gorgeous little man.

“Chris and I had been dating for two years. 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 on the reason behind her son’s middle name.

“We spent every minute together, morning and night, for those weeks before I went back to work. He sleeps in our bed every night. I never want to let him go.” Miranda on the difficulties of being a working mother.

“My baby is amazing, even his head smells amazing. His breath, the whole thing, you could eat him! He’s a big, beautiful boy. He’s great.” – Orlando on his sweet son.

“[Flynn] is “probably the most jet-set kid in the world.” – Orlando on his well-travelled tot.

“It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. Becoming a mother puts everything into perspective. You become more comfortable in your own skin.” – Miranda on the joys of motherhood.
