Miranda Kerr introduces boyfriend Evan Spiegel to her son
Miranda Kerr has spoken about the new man in her life, and it seems things are getting serious.
The Australian model told The Edit, the magazine of luxury fashion retailer Net-a-Porter, that she stepped her relationship with 25-year-old Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel up to the next level, by introducing him to her young son.
According to Kerr, 32, Spiegel has introduced five-year-old Flynn, her son with ex-husband Orlando Bloom (from whom she separated in 2013) only after they had been dating for six months: a period of time that she and Bloom had agreed upon when they separated.
"We had to know the person for six months and feel good about them," she said. "Evan met Flynn, so yeah, things are going well. Orlando thinks he's great. We're just a modern family now!"

Despite their seven-year age gap, Kerr said dating Spiegel, who has an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion, does not always feel like she is dating a younger man.
"He's 25, but he acts like he's 50," she said.
"He's not out partying. He goes to work in Venice [Beach], he comes home. We don't go out. We'd rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early."
However the former Victoria's Secret Angel did not deny that there were some perks to dating a man seven years her junior, telling the publication she has "the best of both worlds", reportedly with a wink.
Spiegel is perhaps best known for the scandal he faced in 2014, when misogynistic emails he sent during his time at a university fraternity were leaked to the public.
He was forced to publicly apologise for the emails, which included tips for getting women from a neighbouring sorority drunk ("PiPhis are more frigid than previously anticipated"), and explicitly worded statements encouraging men to have sex with the women because they deserved a "pat on the back" for their recent sporting successes.
Kerr first officially confirmed her relationship with Spiegel in November last year, after months of speculation that the pair were dating.
"We met actually at a Louis Vuitton dinner in New York a year ago," she told E! News.
"We just started out as friends and eventually it developed into more."
Kerr told E! that Spiegel was a "really kind person and very genuine and very authentic", adding, "also he's very intelligent".
In June last year, the couple were first spotted together making out at a bar at Venice Beach, California. The next month, Spiegel met Kerr's parents during a family holiday to the Greek Islands.
