Grieving Kerr reveals second family heartache

Supermodel Miranda Kerr is mourning the loss of her grandmother Ann, just weeks after burying her late grandfather.

The former Victoria's Secret angel described Ann, who died on Saturday, as "the heart of our family" in an emotional tribute shared on Instagram.

"Nan there are no words to describe how grateful my heart is for you." Kerr wrote.

"You are the heart of our family. You're the reason we're all so close. You're the reason we have faith. You're the reason we are all cheeky. You've put a twinkle in all our eyes. You've brought so much light and love into this world through everyone you have met.

"Everyone who has met you has been uplifted by your presence. You're the reason I am who I am. You've taught me how to love, care, cook, have faith, have grace, dress, take care of myself, my husband and our children. …

"You're our compass and you'll continue to be that compass for me and our children for the rest of our lives. Thank you Nan for being all a girl could ever wish for in a Nan and so much more.
