Miranda Kerr says ex-husband Orlando Bloom is “like a brother” to her. The comment comes more than three years after the former couple split.

While their romantic relationship didn’t last, the one-time spouses continue to amicably co-parent their 6-year-old son, Flynn. “We’re a modern family,” Kerr tells People. “Orlando and I are literally like family. He’s like a brother to me.”

She adds, “It’s very weird, but we really care for each other and we have a great relationship, so I feel very lucky.” Bloom has been dating Katy Perry for a year now, a partnership that has Kerr’s blessing. In fact, the model revealed she welcomes Perry’s presence in their son’s life. “They’re great. They get along really well,” she tells the magazine.

As Gossip Cop has reported, Kerr is engaged to Evan Spiegel, the co-founder of Snapchat. Despite what she calls an “amazing” family dynamic, a tabloid story last year claiming Perry sent Kerr an engagement present was untrue. Interestingly, though, Kerr is not the first star to make the sibling comparison about an ex.

Gwyneth Paltrow similarly said Chris Martin is “like my brother” in an interview last year. She told Glamour, “We’re still very much a family, even though we don’t have a romantic relationship. He’s like my brother.” Paltrow added that Martin is a “great ex-husband.” Sounds like Kerr would say the same of Bloom.
