Orlando Bloom and supermodel wife Miranda Kerr are celebrating becoming parents to a healthy son.

The 27-year-old Victoria's Secret model gave birth in a Los Angeles hospital on Friday to a baby boy weighing 4.5 kilos, which is almost 10lbs, the Herald Sun reports.

Miranda's grandmother Ann Kerr apparently said, via a family friend, that both mother and baby were doing "very well".

Miranda's parents Therese and John Kerr flew to the America to be with their daughter for the birth and Orlando, 33, was also at her side for the arrival of their first child.

The supermodel was spotted shopping for boy's baby clothes last week, sparking rumours the couple already knew they were expecting a boy, despite Miranda and Orlando both insisting they wanted a surprise

The couple began dating in 2007 and married in an intimate ceremony last July.

Orlando said of becoming a father in August: "I'm really excited about it, it's great."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
