For all those women wondering how Buddhist bikini sensation Miranda Kerr juggles motherhood, modelling and marriage, here it is in a nutshell.

She practises yoga moves while bouncing son Flynn in his bassinet; she sometimes has a night nanny; she started working with a personal fitness trainer eight weeks after giving birth; she, of course, has a loving and supportive hubby (in Hollywood hottie Orlando Bloom) with whom she shares parenting duties equally; and she had Deepak Chopra come to her house for meditational healing post-birth. Oh, and she's been super genetically blessed and is lucky enough to be able to bring bub to work with her.

On the eve of her comeback parade for David Jones, the Gunnedah girl who became an international catwalk sensation has given some insights into her highly photographed life in an exclusive interview in the August edition of InStyle magazine, which is out tomorrow.

She tells InStyle there is no exact division of duties in their parenting styles: "It's whoever has their hands free. When I'm not working we don't have a nanny. Some nights we have a lady who comes in to help out but he [Flynn] is getting better at sleeping now, so not as often. And if I need to get on a plane for one day of work, I pump my milk and put it into the freezer for Orlando."

In the interview, she discusses everything from the chants she repeats every morning ("I am a healthy, vibrant being of love and light") to the way she juggles motherhood and supermodel-dom ("I was working 18-hour days. Now the pace has slowed, so I can spend the majority of my time with Flynn").

Kerr says she is "first a wife and a mother and then comes work".

However, for the coming DJs' parade she is looking forward to being reunited with Aussie designers who first gave her a break.

Kerr also tells the mag she would love to see Flynn given the Aussie country upbringing she so values and has brought a little bit of that back to Hollywood, admitting to a vegie patch. "Flynn would love it [Australia]; I had such a wonderful childhood in the country. He is going to have a diverse upbringing."

It's this base of family (her parents and grandparents were even with her during the interview) that has kept the Victoria's Secret model so grounded, with priorities firmly in place: "While it's nice to appreciate the fashion world ... what makes you happy are real relationships and the moments you share with loved ones."
