"It's very challenging," he shared. "You know, I love Miranda and she loves me. We both adore and love our son. We both recognize and realize that we're going to be in each other's lives for the rest of our lives, raising our son."

"In a joint statement, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months," the rep said. "After six years together, they have recently decided to formalize their separation."
The statement continued, "Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family."
"Life doesn't always works out exactly as we plan or hope for but fortunately we're both...we're adults," he explained. "We love and care about each other and we, most of all, love our son."
