Miranda Kerr has praised Katy Perry, crediting her with aiding Kerr's co-parenting relationship with her ex-husband Orlando Bloom.

Kerr and Bloom were married from 2010 to 2013 and share 10-year-old son Flynn together.

Discussing her relationship with her ex-husband on the Moments podcast with basketball player and presenter Candace Parker, Kerr explained that the former couple 'realised that having two happy parents separated [was] more important for our child than two unhappy parents together'.

Explaining how the former couple 'tried for so long' to make it work but ultimately separated for their respective and Flynn's happiness.

'We actually did that in a really healthy way and we're friends now because we were able to communicate that the most important thing was Flynn... we're not talking about our needs, our hurt, we're talking about Flynn and if this is the best thing for him. We make choices based on that still to this day,' Kerr said of her co-parenting relationship with Bloom.

The model continued discussing the process of each parent dating and revealed her first impressions of meeting Perry: 'When Orlando started dating Katy, he invited me over one time and she was there and we just immediately got along. I saw how she was with Flynn, she was very playful with Flynn, she was not trying to be his mum, she was just being friendly and kind and that's all you can ask for.'

Since then, Kerr and Perry's relationship has gone from strength to strength with the Kora founder expressing her admiration for the 'Dark Horse' singer, saying she appreciates Perry for helping her 'deal' with her ex-husband who she likened to 'an annoying brother' and going as far to say she 'loves' Perry more than Bloom.

'We go on holidays together, we celebrate all the important milestones. I mean I love her. It would be safe to say I love her more than Flynn's dad, but he's like to me right now, he's like a brother and most of the time an annoying brother. So she helps me deal with him because she can deal with him and I'm so grateful that she's there because it just takes the pressure off me.'

Since then, Kerr went on to marry Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel and has welcomed two more sons, three-year-old Hart and Miles, who is 18-months-old.

Bloom has been engaged to Perry since 2019 and last year they welcomed their first child together, a daughter Daisy.
