Just days after actor Orlando Bloom and his wife, model Miranda Kerr, announced their decision to split, the former duo put on the appearance of still being a couple in front of photographers and their son, two-year-old Flynn Christopher, this weekend.
According to a report from the NY Daily News, the twosome, who announced their decision to divorce after three years of marriage due to unidentified issues Thursday, were spotted getting cozy during a romantic stroll around Manhattan Saturday with their son Flynn in tow. “[Bloom] walked arm-in-arm with Kerr as they left a lunch at Amaranth restaurant in midtown Manhattan. At one point, he even went in for a friendly peck with Kerr,” said the report.
The outing marks the first time the couple has been spotted together following the announcement of their separation. Kerr, 30, was last seen publicly on Friday walking solo into her Manhattan apartment building. The 36–year-old “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor and current “Romeo and Juliet” Broadway star was seen following the Australian model into the complex just minutes later.
A rep for Bloom first confirmed the couple’s decision to split in a joint statement to E! News Friday. “Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months,” said the statement, adding, “After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation. Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.
Just hours after issuing the statement, Bloom commented on the split saying Kerr, a model famous for her work with the lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret, will always be close to his heart. “We’re not friends,” the UK native told a TMZ paparazzo, adding, “We’re family.”
