The Victoria's Secret model's parents, brother and grandmother claimed they had not seen her and son Flynn in over a year.
There has been a crack in Miranda Kerr's family and there is an effort to sew it back together. The supermodel's Australian family has sent her an emotional public plea to come home in a "love letter" exposed in an episode of Australian docudrama series "Family Confidential".
Kerr's family, her parents Therese and John, brother Matthew and nanna Ann, claimed they had not seen her or her son Flynn in over a year. "Miranda's life is so different now (and) she's surrounded by yes people all the time. It's so important for me to be real, to be true, to be who she needs me to be," said Therese who was fired by Miranda as the managing director of Kora skincare last year.
John is particularly missing the times spent with his 3-year-old grandson. "What I'd really like to do as a granddad now is teach Flynn how to milk a cow, how to ride a horse, teach him all them country things," he said. And he had wished that Miranda and Flynn will not be blinded by the limelight. "After what I know now I would rather she did just marry a nobody because you really can't get that family time by yourself. I just hope Flynn grows up and he wants to be with his nan and pop," he said.
John also revealed how he came to know about Miranda's split from husband Orlando Bloom, saying the actor was the one giving him a call. "I remember him saying 'we're always going to be family' and that's how we'll treat Orlando, Miranda and Flynn. We're all family," he said.
Although estranged, John defended Miranda's decision to take control of her own life after 30. "There were so many people who said 'oh Miranda she used to be this nice little girl who we could get to do anything,' whereas now she's like 'you know what, I'm not doing that anymore,' " he said, adding, "I wish she was just a normal, everyday girl, I really do."
Meanwhile, Matthew's plea is more privacy with his sister. "I'd like to spend more one-on-one time instead of with an entourage of people who we don't really know. I love her to death, I just want to see her more," Matthew begged.
In response to her family's public plea, Miranda said through her rep that she "wasn't able to be back in Australia to film this episode due to her busy international work schedule but is grateful to her parents, brother and extended family in Australia for their ongoing support and love. The Kerr family have a special and unique bond and I'm sure this intimate insight will be viewed fondly by all."
