Orlando is a proud new papa

We all know that Orlando Bloom couldn’t bare to watch wife Miranda Kerr go through 23 hours of labor without an epidural (the supermodel’s Vietnam story), doesn’t mind having his son named after his wife’s ex-boyfriend and is one of the sexiest young dads in Hollywood (the last statement is pure fact).
