Confesses: Being a Dad
First-time dad Orlando Bloom can’t seem to contain his joy over his 3-month-old son, Flynn! “Ah, it’s amazing. It’s amazing” Orlando, 34, told In Touch of fatherhood at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of The Good Doctor in New York City on April 22. “He’s my boy. Amazing, it’s just – all the things that you thought were important drift into the background and the things that are important come to the foreground. He’s one of them.”
In the film, Orlando plays a doctor who falls in love with his patient, played by Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough. Orlando explained, “I get to play a doctor who falls in love with a patient, which is a big no-no. He’s a guy who is doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons. It’s a tragic love story.”
Fortunately for the talented actor, art hasn’t imitated life. Orlando seems blissfully happy with his wife, Victoria’s Secret bombshell Miranda Kerr, 28, who was his date to the premiere, and seemed to somehow have miraculously lost all the “baby weight” after giving birth three months ago! “She’s gorgeous,” Orlando gushed to In Touch.
Co-star Rob Morrow, an old hand at daddy duty, has bonded with Orlando about being a dad. “We were just chatting about it. I have a 10-year-old,” Rob shared with In Touch on the red carpet. ”I was telling Orlando it gets better and better and more complicated. He was showing me a zillion pictures. I think he’s going to be great and they seem like a good couple!”
Riley added, “I think he’s a really good father. He’s so happy and excited. It’s really sweet!”
