Aussie supermodel Miranda Kerr is reportedly in labour in Los Angeles.

A family member said Kerr went into labour early this morning following a false alarm on Boxing Day, an Eastern States newspaper has reported.

Kerr's parents were in Los Angeles as the model prepared for the birth of her first child with husband Orlando Bloom.

"Rumours that Kerr is expecting a boy have recently gone into overdrive after Kerr was spied shopping for boys clothes in LA recently," The Daily Telegraph said.

"Despite giving birth in the US, the model has made it clear that her bub will spend a lot of time in Australia, tweeting recently that despite having a US, European and Australian passport, her first born will be 'an Aussie through and through'."

The imminent arrival of the star couple's baby follows heart-breaking news that Kerr's grandparents' house in north-west NSW was destroyed by flames.

Lightning struck the timber home of Kerr's grandparents - Peter and Anne - in Gunnedah on Wednesday afternoon.

Kerr's grandparents managed to escape unscathed but her grandmother is reported to have lost most of her antique collection.
