miranda kerrMiranda Kerr and husband Orlando Bloom welcomed a healthy baby boy, Flynn Bloom, on Jan. 6, 2011. Now Miranda has taken to her personal blog to share the first public photo of Flynn, an intimate shot of her newborn breastfeeding.

"On the 6th of January I gave birth to our beautiful little son Flynn," Miranda wrote in a message to her fans. "We cherish him. He weighed 9lb 12 ounces (a very healthy and big baby boy). I gave birth to him naturally; without drugs or painkillers and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour, but Orlando was with me the whole time supporting and guiding me through it."

The supermodel continued, "I could not have done it without him. We are so happy and are enjoying our time together as a family. He is our little ray of sunshine."

Miranda was far from shy during her pregnancy, posing completely nude for W Magazine's December issue while four months along. She told the magazine, "For me, family is life. The decision to start one wasn't complex at all... My career has been wonderful, but it's not my life. I don't feel pressure to get back to work."

Miranda and Orlando began dating in late 2007, and were engaged in June of 2010. In August, the couple announced they were expecting their first child, but would not learn the gender of the child beforehand, wanting it to be "a surprise."
