Miranda Kerr talks about Evan Spiegel

"My mom used to call me a 'giggling Gert' because I was always laughing, even in my sleep," Miranda told ELLE Canada inside the December issue. "When Orlando and I separated, I actually fell into a really bad depression. I never understood the depth of that feeling or the reality of that because I was naturally a very happy person."

Miranda said she pushed through it by learning, "every thought you have affects your reality and only you have control of you mind." The 33-year-old now amicably co-parents her five-old-son, with her 39-year-old ex and says that his happiness comes first. "The most important thing is that when he has his time with me, we have quality time together, and when he's with his dad, he has quality time with him," Miranda said. "And it works out really well because I book in my photo shoots for the time he's with his dad, and the rest of the time I just get to be a mom."

He's my soul mate."
