Yes, Miranda Kerr is parting ways with Victoria’s Secret, but no, it wasn’t their idea to drop her, Kerr says.

In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Kerr says that her upcoming 30th birthday had her ready for a change of pace.

“The thing is, I’ve been modeling since I was 13,” Kerr tells the paper. “I’m now entering a new phase in my life. I have felt this coming since my son was born and, after I became a mother, I realized I needed to prioritize my time.”

And those new priorities include managing her Kora Organics beauty line and other upcoming projects. “I’ve reached a point in my career where I’m developing my own opportunities that are really reflective of my passions,” she says, adding that she is too busy to make major commitments — like Victoria’s Secret contracts. “I’m just not in a position to commit to a full contract at this time. It’s three months at a bare minimum.”

As for rumors that she was tough to work with? She dismisses them. “I’m sure anyone that has worked with me would agree that it’s not true,” she says. And we tend to believe her: Anyone whose baby looks like this has got to be happy all the time!

Tell us: What do you think of the news? What should Kerr do next?

I love Miranda Kerr. She was my favorite VS model. I think she made the right decision to close her modeling chapter and focus on more important priorities, like her family. Though she is gorgeous!

She’s probably going to be home with baby more :)

I’ve always liked her..and I’ve always thought she is one of the most beautiful women in the world. How long has she been with VS? It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long, but I don’t exactly pay attention to the commercials or anything either. lol

Of all the VS Models, I think she was the prettiest. Candace Swanepole a close second. My husband even thought she was the prettiest. Congrats to her for realizing the responsibility of her obligations and motherhood and prioritizing them to better herself and her family.

I wanted to hate her, put her in the ‘mean girl vapid model’ category, but I saw her on Ellen and she’s lovely! A really sweet young mum, adorable. Wait that makes me hate her more hahahah j/k

I love her and think she is absolutely gorgeous. She is smart to go out on a high note. She definitely has her priorities right, family first.
