Orlando Bloom Opens Up About Miranda Kerr Split: 'We Love Each Other... We're A Family'

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr may have split but they still "love each other", according to the Brit star.

Orlando told talk show host Katie Couric that "life sometimes doesn't work out exactly as we plan or hope for" but he holds no hard feelings towards the model he had a six-year relationship with.

The couple also have a 2-year-old son Flynn and Orlando explained they'd always be a strong family unit.

"There's no question that, you know, for the sake of our son and everything else, we're going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn," he said.

Celeb couples often say they'll remain friends when they split, but the 'Pirates of The Caribbean' star and Victoria's Secret model seem to actually mean it. They have been spotted Halloween shopping in New York recently and have yet to say a bad word about each other.

When they split a spokesperson told E! News: "In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months.

"After six years together, they have recently decided to formalise 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."

The pair met in 2007 before tying the knot three years later.
