Miranda Kerr hasn't always been lucky in love.

As she recalls in Net-a-Porter's weekly digital magazine The EDIT, she was deeply affected by the death of her first boyfriend, Christopher Middlebrook. "I was 16, and it was really a turning point," the model says of losing Christopher, who died in a car accident. "I was depressed and went to a few therapists, but then I realized the only person who could help me was myself."

After her heart healed, Miranda went on to date finance broker Adrian Camilleri and musician Jay Lyon before falling in love with actor Orlando Bloom in 2007, whom she wed three year later and divorced in 2013. In spite of her splits, Miranda remains a hopeless romantic. "You can't close yourself off from love," she says. "I try to keep my heart open and not feel afraid."

And that's not to say she regrets her relationships either. Miranda is still on good terms with Orlando, with whom she shares custody of their 5-year-old son, Flynn Christopher Bloom. (His middle name is a tribute to Miranda's first boyfriend). Regarding her divorce, the Australian supermodel says it was for the best. "Flynn was 2, so it was really hard to make the decision, but our son is our priority so you have to come from love," she explains. "You have to be kind."

Today, she's feeling much luckier in love, thanks to Snapchat co-founder and billionaire Evan Spiegel, whom she met at a work dinner for Louis Vuitton. "He's 25, but he acts like he's 50. He's not out partying. He goes to work in Venice [Beach]. He comes home. We don't go out," she says of her low-key life with the mogul. "We'd rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early."

"[But] in some ways he does [feel like a younger man]," she adds. "I'm telling you, I've got the best of both worlds..."

Things are going so well with Evan that Miranda has introduced him to Flynn—with Orlando's blessing, of course. "[Orlando and I decided] that we had to know the person for six months and feel good about them," the 32-year-old Australian beauty tells The EDIT. "Evan met Flynn, so yeah, things are going well. Orlando thinks he's great. We're just a modern family now!"
