Shortly after the couple, who had been married for just three years and have a two-year-old son, Flynn, announced their separation, family life has been going on as normal, with the smiling pair photographed running errands around New York City with their little toddler in tow.

Bloom, the British star of Lord of the Rings, broke his silence last month, declaring to TV chat show host Katie Couric 'We love each other, we're a family'.

Now Kerr, 30, has broken her silence in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar from her native Australia.

Echoing her exes views, the world's second-highest earning model told the magazine: "It's difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it's on a public scale or not. It was important for us long-term to preserve our friendship and the dynamic of being loving parents to Flynn so we dealt with everything openly and honestly."

She added: "We're still very big parts of each other's lives. There's no reason for us to be anything but a united front. We still love and care for each other deeply."

While rumours have since surfaced about her dating Australian businessman James Packer, she explains that even though the break-up was "difficult", their mutual respect has helped them stay on good terms.

"We respect each other and with respect comes understanding. When there's understanding, I guess everything is a little more harmonious," she admits.

Kerr met Bloom in 2007 and married in an intimate ceremony in 2010. The following January she gave birth to their son, Flynn Christopher, who will turn three next month.

Modelling a tuxedo jacket on the cover of the glossy magazine's January/ February issue she says: "Flynn is the most important thing in both our lives. And because we share that bond, we both feel it's important to be united."
