Miranda Kerr recently revealed in an interview that she actually fell into depression after she and Orlando Bloom separated back in October 2013.
Bloom and Kerr were married for around three years before they broke up and they also have a 5-year-old son named Flynn.
When Elle Canada interviewed Kerr about how she felt about the divorce she said “When Orlando and I separated, I actually fell into a really bad depression… I never understood the depth of that feeling or the reality of that because I was naturally a very happy person.”
She further said “every thought you have affects your reality and only you have control of your mind… And also, when I wake up and when I go to bed, I have that attitude of gratitude and I say, ‘Thank you for this beautiful day, for this roof over my head, for the fact that I have my health and my son has his health, and thank you for our family.’”
Kerr said that meditation, yoga and healthy eating helped her get through the tough times as well as focusing on her thoughts. She also revealed that even though she and Bloom are separated, co-parenting with Bloom has so far worked out.
“The most important thing is that when he has his time with me, we have quality time together, and when he’s with his dad, he has quality time with him… And it works out really well because I book in my photoshoots for the time he’s with his dad, and the rest of the time I just get to be a mom,” she quipped.
Both Kerr and Bloom have now moved on since their separation. Kerr recently got engaged to 26-year-old Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel while Bloom is currently dating pop star Katy Perry.
