Like most new dads, Orlando Bloom is proud of his 3-month-old son Flynn.
“He’s my boy, he’s amazing,” the actor told reporters before the premiere of The Good Doctor at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on Friday.
Bloom also explained how his life has changed since his son’s arrival on Jan 6.
“Everything you know, all the things that you thought were important, drift into the background,” Bloom, 34, said. “And even things that were important really come to the fore and he’s one of them.”
Saving some compliments for Flynn’s mother, Bloom said it felt “wonderful” to have Miranda Kerr by his side at the premiere. “She’s gorgeous,” he said of his wife of nine months, who recently showed off an unbelievable post-baby body at a bikini photo shoot.
The actor also had a movie to promote, telling reporters, “I get to play a doctor who falls in love with a patient, which is a big no-no.”
