Their new partners play a role too.
Kerr, 33, was attending the Harper's BAZAAR 150th anniversary party in Los Angeles when she spoke to People.
"Orlando and I are literally like family, he's like a brother to me," she told the magazine. "It's very weird, but we really care for each other and we have a great relationship, so I feel very lucky."
"We're a modern family," she added.
On Flynn's relationship with Bloom's current partner, Katy Perry, Kerr said: “They’re great. They get along really well.”
Bloom and Perry have been dating for a little over a year, and our sister site Mamamia has previously reported on the surprising way Kerr dealt with her and Bloom's divorce.
The model and businesswoman said she suffered from depression after their split, and used aromatherapy to cope. A blend of essential oils was specially made for Kerr during this tough time and it brought her a lot of comfort.
“When you put it on, it feels like somebody is giving you a big hug; that’s how soothing it is,” Kerr told Australian beauty website Byrdie.
