Most brides spend their wedding days sipping Champagne with their loved ones and trying to relax before one of the biggest moments of their lives - but not Miranda Kerr.
The Aussie supermodel has revealed she spent the hours leading up to her 2017 wedding to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel in the kitchen, cooking.
The couple wed in an intimate ceremony at Spiegel's California mansion, with an estimated 40 guests in attendance, consisting of mainly family and close friends.
The 37-year-old founder of beauty brand Kora Organics revealed she cooked her husband a roast chicken on their special day, because she wanted the first meal he ate as a married man to be one his new wife had prepared with her own bare hands.
"One of my favourite dinner dishes is my slow roast organic chicken with turmeric, lemon and garlic. It holds a special place in my heart because I cooked it and served it at our wedding – I really wanted, as his wife, to be the one to cook the first meal he ate as my husband," Miranda revealed in a new interview with Australian beauty website Beauticate.
Miranda's wedding day chicken was first reported by Vogue in 2017, who explained in their exclusive cover story: "On a cool May morning, just as a cloak of fog began to lift off the western hills of Los Angeles, Miranda Kerr ran downstairs and put a chicken in the oven."
"If it seems odd that Kerr should be making dinner on her wedding day, consider the surprisingly intimate scale of the nuptials themselves: a cosy affair at home with 45 or so friends and family for one of the world's most recognisable models and her fiancé, Evan Spiegel, whose company, Snapchat, boasts close to 200 million daily users."
"But there was no need to pity this busy bride, whose apron would soon be traded for Dior Haute Couture. She was cooking only for her husband-to-be (Kerr's slow-roasted chicken scented with turmeric and lemon is among Spiegel's favorite dishes), while the caterer replicated her menu for the rest of the assembled guests."
Miranda, who shares her eldest son Flynn, nine, with ex-husband Orlando Bloom, and has two sons with Evan - Hart, two, and Myles, eight months - also opened up to the publication about juggling motherhood and running her beauty business.
"Parenting three boys is definitely a juggle, but I'm so in love with them," she said.
"Flynn is very independent and helpful. When I had Hart, my second son, it felt quite manageable having Flynn and a little one, whereas since having my third son, Myles, there are now three kids and two were under two, so it's obviously been more intense. Luckily Myles is such a calm, sweet baby, and his brothers absolutely dote on him.
"Still, these days I'm breastfeeding Myles, Hart is tugging at me wanting me to play with him and Flynn is asking me to schedule play dates and after school activities… then I also have Teddy, our dog, begging me for attention!"
Miranda also revealed that Flynn is taking to his role as older brother like a duck to water.
"Flynn absolutely adores his two younger brothers, and he is such a big help," she said.
"He loves playing with them and keeping them entertained, and really enjoys reading to them before bed – it's very sweet. It's a joy to watch their bond develop and I can't wait to see them all grow up together. We're very content with three happy, healthy boys (although who knows what the future holds!)".
Despite the fact that she had already been married and had a child with her ex, Miranda and Evan decided not to have sex before they tied the knot.
Before the pair were married, Miranda was asked if she would try to have another baby, telling the UK Times: "Not yet. Not until after we get married. My partner is very traditional," later adding, "We can't … I mean we're just … waiting."

Miranda and Evan first met at a work dinner hosted by former Harper's Bazaar US editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey.
The duo swapped numbers at the event after chatting about having recently bought properties in LA.
"Oh, he's cute," Miranda told US talk show host Jimmy Kimmel in 2018 of her first impressions of Evan.
"We were chatting about, 'Oh my God, your construction, my construction'," Miranda said of their first conversation.
Bailey later joked to Miranda, "I bet you two are going to get married", and what a prediction that turned out to be!
Despite the fact that Evan had to leave the dinner early to prepare for work the next day, the pair managed to reconnect days later.
"I was like, 'What, he's leaving?'" Miranda told Kimmel. "He takes his work very seriously."
