Heidi’s Mom Evolution
Every day is a lesson for Heidi Klum, especially as a parent. “It’s definitely a learning curve,” says the mom of Helene, 14, Henry, 13, Johan, 11, and Lou, 9 (whom she shares with ex-husband Seal, 55), noting that now that they’re older they want to do things differently. “So for me, it’s getting used to figuring out who they are as a person... I’m learning as I’m doing.” The model, 45, opens up to Us about her updated role as Mom.
Q: Do you ever get any advice from fellow mom friends? Most have younger kids, so I’m kind of ahead of the game, and they’re asking me for advice. I wish I had someone I could ask!
Q: Are your kids well-behaved? They’re not bad.
They really don’t overstep their boundaries too much. They try to push a little bit, but it’s never really where it gets out of hand or anything like that.
Q: Any crushes yet? [They’re] too young. Who knows? They also don’t tell you everything!
“They’re pretty good,” the momsays of her children (in April). “I haven’t had to ground my kids yet,” Klum (in Hollywood on Sept. 18) admits.
