Washington: Supermodel Miranda Kerr has revealed that she was warned by her grandmother that she would have a big baby if she didn`t stop eating so much during her pregnancy.

The petite Victoria`s Secret model, who gave birth to Flynn - who weighed almost 10 lbs - in January, wishes she had listened to her grandmother`s warning.

“I put on 40 pounds, but I wasn`t fazed. I was eating so much and my grandma was like, ``Love, you had better stop eating. You`re going to make a big baby and I don`t know how you are going to push it out.`` I was like, ``Nan, it`s fine,`` but she was the only one who knew,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling the Sydney Morning Herald’s Life and Style magazine.

Despite the difficult birth, Miranda says motherhood is better than she ever thought it would be and has praised Orlando for being a helpful “hands-on” dad.
