From dailymail.co.uk: In a radio interview on the Kyle and Jackie O radio program, Orlando said he was very proud of his wife. ‘I was very proud of her. To have just had a baby and then got back up on 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.’
‘(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.’
He said that he would rather stay home with his son than attend glitzy red carpet events. ‘Where it is possible I try to make a point of doing (the child-minding) it myself. He’s a baby. I hate to not see him walking and crawling and doing all those things and I just like hanging out with him. It’s the nature of our lives.’
‘Time sort of loses its perspective and where were you and what were you doing…. I don’t want that to be that case with Flynn. I really want to have that connection and feel that bond.’
The Lord of The Rings actor was also spotted today shopping at clothes and jewellery stores, possibly buying a Valentine’s Day present for his love. Although he admitted they wouldn’t be spending the day together. ‘It’s a tragedy,’ he said before adding: ‘She probably doesn’t care.’
