Snap CEO Evan Spiegel and Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr are incredibly influential individuals, but together, they make up one of the world’s most well-known power couples.

While Kerr, 36, is a big name in the beauty and modeling industry, the 29-year-old Spiegel is the CEO of social media company Snap.

The two started dating back in 2015. A whirlwind romance followed, which led to their engagement in 2016. They got married the following year, and welcomed their first child, a boy named Hart, in May 2018 and baby No. 2, a boy named Myles, last October.

Here’s how the two powerful stars met and fell in love.

The two met in 2014 at a dinner for Louis Vuitton in Los Angeles. The night they met, Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey said to Kerr, “I bet you two are going to get married.”

“We were really good friends for a long time before we started dating,” Kerr told The Sydney Morning Herald. The two started dating in 2015.

Kerr was the first Australian to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2007, and consistently appeared among the rankings of the world’s highest-paid models. Now, she’s working on creative projects like her skincare line, Kora Organics, which she launched in 2006.

Kerr was married to Orlando Bloom until 2013, and they share an 8-year-old 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 has a net worth of more than $3 billion, while Kerr is worth a cool $45 million. In May 2016, the couple purchased a 7,164-square-foot house for $12 million in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The home was previously owned by Harrison Ford, and has a gym, pool, and guest house.

While their relationship is mostly private, the duo makes some high-profile appearances, like a May 2016 dinner at the White House with then-President Barack Obama.

Mostly, though, the pair loves hanging out together, as evident in Kerr’s Instagram posts of the couple.

In July 2016, Spiegel and Kerr got engaged. Kerr made the announcement in an Instagram post using Bitmojis, a company Snap bought for $100 million. The diamond on the engagement ring was reportedly 1.75 to 2.5 carats, and cost an estimated $75,000 to $100,000.

Spiegel took Snap public in March 2017. He got a $505.4 million package thanks to the IPO, making Spiegel the highest-paid CEO in the US.

Kerr was at the New York Stock Exchange to support Spiegel, sending snaps with early Snapchat employees on the trading floor.

In May 2017, Kerr and Spiegel tied the knot. The wedding was an “intimate affair” with 45 guests in attendance, many of whom were “high-profile” or models.

Spiegel is known for being secretive, and that extended to his nuptials, too: Guests were picked up at checkpoints and driven to Spiegel and Kerr’s home in blacked-out limos.

The couple held their wedding ceremony and reception under a canopy in the backyard of their home in Brentwood, California. The affair was complete with pre-nuptial yoga and after-hours karaoke.

A pianist played “When You Wish Upon a Star” during the cocktail hour, and during the reception, Kerr sang a rendition of Shania Twain’s “You’re Still the One” to Spiegel.

In November 2017, the pair announced they were expecting their first child together.

In May 2018, the couple welcomed a baby boy, Hart, named after Spiegel’s grandfather. In an Instagram post a couple weeks after the birth, Kerr thanked everyone for their “warm wishes,” and said her and Spiegel were feeling “so very blessed.”

 

Shortly after the birth of their first child, Spiegel said in an interview that having a child is a “life transforming event” that’s “impossible to describe.”

To celebrate the Spiegel’s first Father’s Day as a dad, Kerr posted a tribute to Spiegel on Instagram last year. “Watching you become a Father warms my heart,” Kerr wrote in her post. “You’re a natural and Hart is the luckiest boy to have you as his Dad.”

 

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

However, that hasn’t stopped Kerr from being critical of Snapchat when she think it’s necessary. After the infamous Snapchat redesign rolled out in early 2018, Kerr reportedly hated the new look and asked Spiegel, “what are you doing?”

When Spiegel isn’t running Snap, Kerr says her husband loves to come home and chill with the family. “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.”

Kerr revealed in an interview in September a bit about how the couple prioritizes health and wellness. Kerr said she mops the floors of the couple’s home with hot water and eucalyptus oil, and turns off almost all of the home’s electricity at night — which she likened to “going camping.”

Kerr also shared that she has a radiation-blocking sticker on the back of her phone, a nod to a controversial theory that cell phones emit harmful rays that could cause cancer and make people sick. Spiegel later revealed he doesn’t have the same sticker on his own cell phone.

Spiegel said the couple imposes a limit on screen time for Kerr’s eldest son, Flynn. He is allowed only 1.5 hours of screen time per week, a rule inspired by Spiegel’s own parents not allowing him to watch TV until he was nearly a teenager.

Nonetheless, Spiegel and his 8-year-old stepson are reportedly close. “He’s already on his iPod,” Spiegel said in a 2018 interview. “We email. Very emoji heavy. It’s good!”

In March 2019, Kerr and Spiegel said they were expecting their second child together. “Miranda, Evan, Flynn and Hart are looking forward to welcoming the newest member to their family,” a rep for Kerr told People.

Kerr announced in October 2019 on Instagram that she had given birth to a baby boy named Myles. “We are overjoyed at the arrival of Myles and so appreciate everyone’s kind words and wishes during this special time,” Kerr wrote.
