Orlando Bloom has insisted that his wife Miranda Kerr had to work hard to restore her figure after giving birth to their son Flynn.
The 'Hobbit' actor said he is proud of the catwalk model for returning to work so swiftly after the child's arrival.
He told The Kyle and Jackie O Show: "I was very proud of her. To have just had a baby and then got back up on [the catwalk] to do that. I don't think its easy for those girls. They make it look easy, but you know, it's a lot of work to look good."
He added that models need "confidence to strut it out there. There's always the people that want to have a dig at you for this that and the other. That's the price you pay."
Bloom went on to say that he prefers staying at home to attending red carpet events, saying it would be easy for his job to distract from key moments in Flynn's life.
"It's the nature of our lives. Time sort of loses its perspective and where were you and what were you doing," he said. "I don't want that to be that case with Flynn. I really want to have that connection and feel that bond."
Miranda has previously joked that Orlando was so stressed by the birth that he needed the epidural more than she did.
