Billionaire Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel and supermodel Miranda Kerr are having a baby — here’s a look inside the power couple’s 2-year whirlwind romance

In May, a new power couple was solidified.

Supermodel Miranda Kerr and billionaire Snap CEO Evan Spiegel tied the knot, with an early morning yoga session and an intimate backyard setting.

The Australian supermodel started dating the 26-year-old CEO nearly two years ago, and a whirlwind romance followed, which lead to their engagement last year.

Here’s how the two powerful stars fell so quickly for each other:


The two met at a dinner for Louis Vuitton in Los Angeles. “We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating,” Kerr told The Sydney Morning Herald.

In 2007, Kerr was the first Australian to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel and was among the world’s highest-paid models. Now she’s working on creative projects like jewelry lines and just launched a handbag collection in Asia.

Kerr, 34, was once married to Orlando Bloom and has a son, Flynn. Spiegel had to wait at least six months to meet him, per Kerr and Bloom’s rules, but “things are going well,” Kerr said. “We’re just a modern family now.”

Spiegel stays busy as the CEO and cofounder of Snap, the parent company of the photo-messaging app Snapchat. It has been a busy year for Spiegel, who took Snap public in March.


Even though the two stay busy with work, Kerr says Spiegel loves to come home and chill with the family. “He’s 25, but he acts like he’s 50. He’s not out partying,” Kerr once said. “He goes to work in Venice [Beach, in LA]. He comes home. We don’t go out. We’d rather be at home and have dinner, go to bed early.”

In May 2016, the couple went all in and purchased a 7,100-square-foot house for $12 million in the Brentwood neighborhood of LA. Things were already getting pretty serious — they’re now rumored to be exchanging vows at the same mansion.

While their relationship is mostly private, the duo makes some high-profile appearances like a dinner at the White House last year with President Barack Obama.

Mostly, though, the pair loves hanging out together.


In July, Kerr announced their engagement by using Bitmojis from Bitstrips — a company Snap had just bought for $100 million — to show that Spiegel had popped the question. ‘I said yes!!!’ Kerr said in her Instagram post.

I said yes!!! ❤️????❤️????❤️

Despite her use of Instagram, owned by Facebook, Kerr says she “cannot STAND Facebook” and has been “appalled” at the features it has copied from Snapchat and her fiancé. “Can they not be innovative?” she said. “Do they have to steal all of my partner’s ideas?”

Snapchat has been undaunted, though. Spiegel took Snap public in March. He’s now estimated to be worth about $5 billion.


Kerr was at the initial public offering to support Spiegel, sending snaps with early Snapchat employees on the floor of the stock exchange.


Now the two, who married in May, are expecting their first child together. Congrats to LA’s newest power couple!
