Miranda Kerr's parents have flown to Los Angeles from Australia so they can be present for the upcoming birth of their grandchild.

The model - who spent the later part of her childhood in Brisbane - is due to give birth to her and her husband Orlando Bloom's first child in the next few weeks and her mother Therese and father John Kerr will be on hand to offer them any support they might need.

A source said: "Miranda and Orlando and their families are really looking forward to the birth."

According to the New York Post newspaper, the Victoria's Secret Angel is also reportedly selling her one-bedroom apartment in New York City for $1.4 million.

She and Orlando intend to raise their child in California and she has decided she no longer needs to keep the property.

Miranda has previously revealed she won't rush back to work after having her baby.

The 27-year-old catwalk beauty insists her career is no longer her biggest priority now she is going to be a mother.

She said: "For me, family is life. The decision to start one wasn't complex at all. My career has been wonderful, but it's not my life. I don't feel pressure to get back to work."
