SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr, who married actor Orlando Bloom in secret in July after a one-month engagement, has confirmed that she is pregnant.

Kerr, 27, who shot to international fame as a Victoria's Secret lingerie model, broke the news to the Spanish edition of Vogue magazine. She stars on the cover of the magazine's September issue.

"Yes, I am pregnant. Four months along," said Kerr, adding that it had been hard to keep the news quiet.

"I remember on one occasion in the early days (of my pregnancy) when it was still too soon to say anything and I had a dreadful time at one job," she said.

Kerr began dating Bloom, 33, star of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "The Lord of the Rings" movies, in 2007.

The couple's marriage was announced last month by upmarket Australian store David Jones, for which Kerr is an ambassador.

At that time Kerr thanked David Jones for letting her cancel her appearance in the store's spring/summer fashion launch for her wedding and honeymoon.

No one at David Jones was immediately available to comment on Kerr's pregnancy and what this meant for her contract with the store.

Kerr, who was raised in the Australian country town of Gunnedah, was ranked ninth on the Forbes' Top 10 Earning Models list this year after earning an estimated $4 million in the past 12 months.

I guess that getting preggers and forcing his hand was the only way for her to get him to marry her, especially when he’d stated in interviews earlier in the year that they were just enjoying time together and not planning to get engaged or married, especially after 3 friggin years together. Why do women nowadays resort to getting pregnant to make a guy marry her?
