Miranda Kerr said that the attention she got from paparazzi as a new mom wasn't easy to deal with.

During an appearance on Bumpsuit's The Village podcast, the entrepreneur mom, 40, recalled being followed by cameramen while out with son Flynn, her now 13-year-old whom she shares with ex-husband Orlando Bloom.

"I remember getting a lot of attention [when first becoming a mother]. I would walk outside and the paparazzi would be there," she shared, reflecting on a time it made her act out.

"There was one time I was so annoyed they were there because I wanted to take Flynn to the park and I didn’t want him to have to deal with all of those shenanigans. It was so out of character of me – but I did give them the finger!" she admitted.

"Everyone was like, 'Miranda, are you ok?'" she continued.

"This is not the way I want to live my life, so I feel really grateful to have that privacy now with my family and my children," Kerr said.

Of herself and husband Evan Spiegel — with whom she shares sons Myles, 4, and Hart, 5, and another baby boy on the way — she said, "We made a decision to keep our children super private. It’s important for me and us as a family that we do maintain that privacy. The intimate moments that we share as a family are ours, not for the rest of the world."

Kerr also touched on how her three boys feel about adding another brother to the bunch.

"With this one, I was just so excited to share the news with them. Myles — the youngest, who I was concerned might get a little jealous because he’s the baby of the house — he’s been fully embracing this pregnancy and kissing and holding my belly every day and talking to the baby."

"He’s really excited and thrilled about this pregnancy. So, I hope he has the same enthusiasm when the actual baby comes out," she laughed. "It just means more love for us to share.”

Kerr is soaking up these final days as a family of five before the newest little one arrives.

"I’m in the final few weeks now, so I’m spending most of my time finishing the nursery, winding up business commitments, and spending lots of one-on-one time with the boys before their baby brother arrives," she shared.

In her partnership with Bumpsuit, not only will the entrepreneur mom be the face of the brand's new campaign, but she's also curated exclusive pregnancy kits, available today, featuring Bumpsuit’s iconic catsuit —a full-body leotard designed to meet your body through pregnancy and postpartum, which is at the heart of the maternity uniform evolution — as well as their new Armadillo Baby Carrier and Kora Organics body oil.
