Miranda Kerr: My Three-Year-Old Is Like a Little Health Guru Already

Miranda Kerr‘s healthy lifestyle is rubbing off on her three-year-old son, Flynn. And he has quite the impressive vocabulary to prove it.

“The other day he was like, ‘Mama, I want to make a smoothie.’ He wanted to make his own smoothie, and then he said, ‘This one’s for you. It’s full of antioxidants,'” she told PEOPLE at a Reebok event in N.Y.C. “He’s three years old, how does he know that? He obviously heard me talking.”

Kerr’s little boy is also part of her fitness routine. “We dance all the time, he loves it. It’s one of his favorite things.”

What else does the star do to maintain her slim figure? A mix of cardio and Ballet Beautiful sculpting classes led by ballerina Mary Helen Bowers (who famously trained Natalie Portman in Black Swan.) Even when she’s busy traveling she makes sure to do some simple exercises. “When I’m in the car or on the airplane, I’ll do different muscle contractions. Clench the butt. Clench the calf, just to get circulation going.”

Kerr said another important part of her workout is feeling confident in her clothes. She recently partnered with Reebok for the launch of their new Skyscape sneaker.

“Being comfortable, enjoying the fabrics, it’s an important aspect of working out. One: It helps you get to the workout. Two: It inspires you to continue to work out. You need to be comfortable.”

Do you agree with the star? What’s your go-to exercise? Share your thoughts below!

I think this woman is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Too bad she isnt an angel anymore.

Her favorite workout buddy is the finger she sticks down her throat to purge.

My go-to exercise is ballet training. I am in dance class at my high school so I always get exercise.
