Miranda Kerr: 'I actually thought I was going to die' during childbirth

"I was working 18-hour days. Now the pace has slowed so I can spend the majority of my time with Flynn--we have a bath together every night," Kerr tells InStyle Australia. "I'm so blessed that I can bring him to work."

Kerr continues that she's "first a wife and a mother, and then comes work. When I work, it needs to be the best decision for us as a family."

Miranda also talked with US Weekly about her natural childbirth experience, which sounds like it was pretty painful.

"I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body. I was looking down on myself, the pain was so intense," says Kerr. "I kept thinking, 'How do women do this? But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined."

Miranda and Orlando will celebrate their first wedding anniversary in just a few short weeks. Congratulations to them on their happy family.
