We were totally heartbroken when we found out that Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr had separated last week — and simultaneously confused when we noticed that they’re not exactly acting like couples who’ve headed to splitsville usually do.

So what’s going on? According to People, Orlando set the record straight when he sat down to chat with Katie Couric about their separation, and although their romantic relationship ultimately failed, their foundation of friendship is still going strong.

“We love each other. We’re a family. We’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives,” he explained. “There’s no question that for the sake of our son and everything else, we’re going to support one another and love each other as parents to Flynn.”

“Life sometimes doesn’t work out exactly as we plan or hope for,” Orlando added. “But we’re adults. We’re professionals. We love and care about each other. Most of all, we love our son.”

And their recent paparazzi photos are proof positive that these two can make it work. If you ask us, Flynn is one lucky kid. We hope their split remains amicable, because we love seeing photos of this adorable family together.
