Miranda Kerr Named Her Baby After An Ex-Boyfriend!

Well this is something you don't see every day! After Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr tragically lost her boyfriend, Christopher Middlebrook, of 2 years in a car accident when she was a teenager, she wrote a letter to him saying how she hoped to name her first child after him in some way.

Wanting to follow up on her promise, she suggested the idea to her husband Orlando Bloom when she got pregnant. Being the good guy that he is, Orlando said that he'd be happy to do it and hence their baby was named Flynn Christopher Blanchard Copeland Bloom.

In Miranda's book "Treasure Yourself" she writes that, "Chris' death taught me that the people who touch your life are always with you. It taught me that I have the choice to be grateful for the time I had with him instead of dwelling on losing him."

And now she'll have a daily reminder of that in little Flynn Christopher! Such a bittersweet story though, don't you think?
