She's been dubbed one of the most beautiful women in the world but, despite a glamorous, high-profile career, supermodel *Miranda Kerr *is a self-proclaimed homebody who's just like any other doting mother.

Fresh from her show-stopping appearance on the David Jones catwalk in Sydney on Wednesday, a relaxed Kerr looked anything but tired as she sat down for a chat with _AAA Weekend _while in Melbourne yesterday.

She was there doing back-to-back media interviews as the new ambassador for the Clear Scalp & Beauty Therapy haircare range.

Having spent two years juggling her jam-packed fashion schedule with being a mum to son *Flynn *with actor husband *Orlando Bloom *, Kerr said while it was no easy feat, being a mother always came first.

"I'm a homebody at heart," she said. "So when I'm home, I'm home, I'm a mum and the shoes come off, no make-up, no hair. It's like I'm out in the garden, playing with (Flynn) barefoot. It's just so nice to have that.

"That's a side that people don't see but those are the moments where I'm truly my happiest He's a bundle of joy - he's a real sweetheart, and my favourite thing to do is be with him."

Discovered in 1997, Kerr shot to global stardom a decade later after her debut as Australia's first Victoria's Secret model.

When Kerr jets off around the globe, she tries to bring Flynn along but he didn't come on this trip.

"This trip wasn't in his best interests," she said. "I stopped breastfeeding about six months ago, so it's better that he's in his routine and in his own home."

On how she balances her globetrotting career and family life, Kerr said it all came down to good time management and keeping her priorities in check.

"I basically have my whole year planned out," she said. "I'll have a block of work where I'm busy, then I'll have a chunk of time off where I'll be with my son. I try to be with him as much as I can, he's my priority."

Earlier this week, Kerr also set straight ongoing break-up rumours.

"We're wonderful. (Bloom) is such an amazing partner, an amazing father and we're just really lucky," Kerr told Nine's Today show.

"We do the best that we can with both of our schedules and we're really lucky to have each other."

After a hectic week, Kerr said she looked forward to getting back to her family in Los Angeles.
