When Miranda Kerr gave birth to her second son, Hart – named for his paternal great-grandfather – on May 9, she was bringing a billionaire baby into the world.

At 27, Kerr’s Snapchat founder husband Evan Spiegel is worth an estimated $3.2 billion, and Hart is the tiny heir to the fortune.

Thanks to her modelling and business interests, Kerr, 35, has amassed an estimated $60 million fortune of her own.

“Words cannot explain how happy we are to welcome our beautiful son into our family,” the couple, who wed in their Los Angeles backyard last year, told People.

The new mother – who has son Flynn, 7, from her previous marriage to Orlando Bloom – “is doing well and Flynn is excited to be a big brother”.

The power pair’s combined fortune sees both children unlikely to ever need to do a paper round. They join other celebrity babies with impressive bank balances before their first birthday.
