While Hart is Spiegel’s first child, he also shares a special bond with Flynn, Kerr’s 7-year-old son with ex-husband Orlando Bloom.

In fact, the little boy might be taking a leaf out of the tech mogul‘s book. As he explains to E! News, “Flynn is 7 and he’s already on his iPod.”

Spiegel adds, “We email. Very emoji-heavy. It’s good!”

On Father’s Day, the Australian model captioned a selfie of the married pair, “And to my wonderful husband. Watching you become a Father warms my heart ❤ You’re a natural and Hart is the luckiest boy to have you as his Dad. 🙏🏻🌈👼🏻”
