Los Angeles: Supermodel Miranda Kerr admits that going through a separation is always a difficult phase.

Kerr, 30, who recently ended her marriage to actor Orlando Bloom, said they still love and care for each other, reported E! online.

"It`s difficult for anyone to go through a separation, whether it`s on a public scale or not. It was important for us long-term to preserve our friendship and the dynamic of being loving parents to Flynn so we dealt with everything openly and honestly," she said.

The model feels that their two-year-son has still kept them united.

"Flynn is the most important thing in both our lives. And because we share that bond, we both feel it`s important to be united.

"We respect each other and with respect comes understanding. When there`s understanding, I guess everything is a little more harmonious. We`re still very big parts of each other`s lives. There`s no reason for us to be anything but a united front. We still love and care for each other deeply."
