  • Miranda Kerr says her birth experience was more painful than she had expected because doctors hadn't warned her that she was carrying a monster-mega-ginormous (nearly) 10lb baby.

Kerr has previously said that during labor, she thought she would die. "I was eating so much and my grandma was like, 'Love, you had better stop eating. You're going to make a big baby and I don't know how you are going to push it out.' I was like, 'Nan, it's fine,' but she was the only one who knew." [SMH]
