I hate to see parents not properly care for their bi-racial children’s hair.

FC on

I don’t see her not properly caring for their hair. The only thing I’d do is probably get Henry a nice trim, but other than that, how is it known she’s not properly caring for her children’s hair?

Aside from that, I do like the photos and I still want to take off with Johan. He’s too cute. Henry and Johan really favor each other when they’re in the same photo. :)

P.S.- I love Heidi’s shirt.

PSB on

She and Seal make some cute babies! I think Leni might grow up to be prettier than Heidi :>

sage on

Henry and johan are just tooo cute, and leni is so pretty.On the hair I see many afican american little boys with hair like that. When my brothers were little their hair use to be like that or my mother would braid it. I think henry looks cute

flower girl on

Such cuties!
Why is Seal not pictured with the family lately? Especially on Heidi’s birthday?

He’s on tour.

Martin on

Everytime I see the Klum-Samuel family I hear this Culture Club song in my head:

Melting Pot-Culture Club

—-
Take a pinch of white man
Wrap him up in black skin
Add a touch of blue blood
And a little bitty bit of red indian boy
Oh like a curly latin kinkies
Oh lordy, lordy, mixed with yellow chinkees, yeah
You know you lump it all together
And you got a recipe for a get along scene
Oh what a beautiful dream
If it could only come true, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all its got
And keep it stirring for
A hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Rabbis and the friars
Vishnus and the gurus
We got the beatles or the sun god
Well it really doesnt matter
What religion you choose
And be thankful little mrs. graceful
You know that livin could be tasteful
We should all get together in a lovin machine
I think Ill call up the queen
It s only fair that she knows, you know, you know

What we need is a great big melting pot
Big enough enough enough to take
The world and all its got
And keep it stirring for
A hundred years or more
And turn out coffee coloured people by the score

Coffee coloured people
Coffee coloured people
Coffee coloured people by the score

Simone on

All of her kids are cuties but I have to agree she needs to do something with that boys hair.

JudeW on

These are three gorgeous kids!!

And pleeze no trim for Henry’s hair!! Someone here suggested this, but no! It’s absolutely beautiful the way it is!

Does Henry have blue(ish) eyes? He’ll grow up to be a beautiful man!

“I hate to see parents not properly care for their bi-racial children’s hair.”

*It bothers me when when white people do not learn how to work with black hair and they let the kids look wild.

What exactly do you find wrong with his hair, that bothers you so much? How is it not taking care of his hair? IN MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION- THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH HIS HAIR. You can tell he is a clean, wellfed, taken care of child, and you can see clearly in the pictures, his hair is clean and well combed.

I find your comments a bit racist. I find that biracial hair is completely different than *white* or *black* hair, and even black people have problems taking care of their biracial children’s hair themselves! Henry appears to have semi-coarse, medium density curly baby hair, that would require no more than some detangler and a wide tooth comb.

There is no difference between his hair and Cindy Crawford’s or Celine Dion’s sons’ hair. They all are boys with long hair. I hope that Johan grows a mini-fro just like Henry’s!

preesi,

nice poem (or is it a song?) but I like it better the way it is now, with all those many different shades and colours in the world… that’s so much more beautiful and interesting than if everyone was/looked the same.

Happy birthday Heidi

Your children are adorable!

Amy on

Henry’s hair is a little long but I wouldn’t call that “not caring for it.” It looks clean and healthy to me.

My son just turned 2 on Monday and he definitely needs a trim but it makes me so nervous taking him to a barber/salon. I don’t to walk out of there crying because they made him look like a little banker… I want him to still look little-boyish and not too grown up.

Diana on

How is it anyone else’s business how Heidi chooses to take care of her children’s hair?? Are her children in any danger, are they well taken care of? Anything else is no one else’s business. I HATE when other people feel they have the right to comment about how someone else takes care of their own children.

ladymama on

I think Heidi Klum is probably the most beautiful person on the face of the earth. Especially when she is pregnant. The definition of stunning, to me.

Lyss on

this is such a cute family! i love heidi and seal and i think there will be more babies for them in the future!

Natalie S. on

I love the pictures of Heidi and her children. They’re so adorable, Leni is going to be a beautiful girl and the boys are already handsome as is.

Jenny on

I agree Liza with everything you said

Jen DC on

At worst, Henry’s hair look a little dry. Other than that, there’s nothing “wrong” with it. And trust me, as a tender-headed black child, if they are coming at him with a comb and it hurts, he’s not trying to sit still for them to comb it through completely. As long as they finger comb it when it is wet so that it does not mat – or even if it does mat, if they separate it into respectable dreadlocks – he’ll be adorable.

But yeah, those babies are well-fed! Look at Johan’s arm. I just giggle whenever I see Henry and Leni together because he is as big as she is. She’s so little compared to those boys. At least Seal and Heidi know when they go out together that Leni will have sizable protectors. :D

Yonni on

As a mother of two biracial children I feel the need to say something about this hair “topic”. First things first, not all “mixed” hair is the same. Most “mixed” hair is just that — mixed. My oldest daughter has my straight hair texture and her hair is a medium brown with blonde highlights (even more in the summer months)… My youngest daughter has very curly hair, but it is thin. So she has a combination of my texture, but with her father’s curls. My friend has three children that are also biracial. Her oldest daughter has long curly hair, but it frizzes into an “Afro” when it is hot and humid. Her middle child, a boy has thick straight coarse hair, and her youngest has extremely curly blonde hair. All of our children’s hair is kept up. Henry appears to have extremely curly hair. They just choose to not cut it yet.. It is still cared for. The only thing that bothers me about people when they have a biracial child is when the parents cut off all of the children’s hair since they don’t know how to care for the curls etc.. Cutting the hair off only makes it a harder experience because eventually that hair is going to have to grow and it will take years. Grow the hair, buy some hair products (I use no hair products that are marketed for “black” hair. I use regular hair products, and comb and care for it. It is not that hard). However, as long as the parents wash, and groom their children can wear whatever kind of hair they want.

Hilde on

Oh, Leni is so beautiful! I think she’s the most beautiful celeb child, really.
Those two boys are so cute, but are Henry’s eyes light-ish?

Beautiful, beautiful family!

Julia on

I love how Leni looks so pretty and delicate while Henry looks like such a masculine little boy. And Johan looks like a blend of his sister and brother. Adorable.

HLN on

Leni is the most beautiful of the 3 kids, i mean look at her liitle face, she’s like a doll!
Johan is the cutest
Henry is so tall and i believe it’s the reason why he doen’t seem “pretty” but in a couple of years he’ll be gorgeous and he’s everything but ugly
Heidi is just BEAUTIFUL and i would give ANYTHING to look like her.
I DECLARE THE SAMUEL-KLUM FAMILY THE CUTEST FAMILY EVER

I was absolutely sure that someone was going to say the comments about Henri’s hairs were racists…
And you know what? That’s what makes me feel really unconfortable….
We HAVE to say that black (or bi-racial) kids are gorgeous…we HAVE to say how beautiful they are.. No, I’m sorry. Some black kids are not that beautiful, and I personnaly don’t find Henry a cute kid.
But everyone can say Sadie Sandler is ugly..and it’s not a problem for anyone! But here, we ‘re talking about a black baby so we have to say he’s the most beautiful kid in the world..of we’re racist. It’s stupid. Some kids are beautiful, some are not. White or black, it doesn’t matter.
I thought since the very beginning that Henry was not really good looking, maybe he’ll grow up being a beautiful man but for now he’s not. And I’m not racist at all.

J-Lin on

Liza – What I think is racist is when people try to say we are all the same. We’re not all the same. There’s a reason Pantene advertises one set of hair products on BET and and another on ABC. That’s why there is a huge market for black hair products. Hair is not all the same. What’s racist is for people to think evey little black kid, because Henry is black, has to walk around with an afro to be cute.

tania on

Johan’s skin is slightly lighter than Henry’s but his eyes and hair are darker!

sarah on

Henry has an afro and it looks unkept.

DeShavonn on

PLEASE stop buggin about Henry’s hair. The boy is already cute and the fact that his hair is the way it is doesn’t take away from his looks because that’s what’s important. All Heidi’s kids are cute especially, Johan. Any who I think that Henry would probably look a little more presentable if he probably had a little moisteriser and a trim, but he’s still cute. The fact that Henry is biracial and probably has diffrent textured hair that Heidi’s probably not used to taking care of isn’t racist. Henry jsut needs a BLACK, WHITE, ASIAN, MIXED, anyone who is experienced wioth his style of hair. But I defintely give a thumbs up to Heidi for being a good mother.

Sarita on

His hair looks fine. He’s a little boy he doesn’t need styled hair. I don’t understand why people think that he needs products or braids in his hair just because he’s black.
I think his hair looks 100x better than for example Little Rock’s (if that is his name) hair.

Leni and Johan look so cute too!

feliciy on

All the comments and this whole heated discussion about a baby’s (because that’s what Henry still is) hair show that there is a lot of people with too much time on their hands.

Émilie on

Beautiful family, I don’t care for Henry’s hair at all, he’s not my kid!

Liza on

Did I say all hair was the same? No! All people ARE the same, inside. I’m recognizing that all hair isnt the by saying it’s no different for him to have long hair than another boy, black, red, white or purple!
I obviously know all hair is different, I have my hands in it all day, and yes, Pantene advertises its haircare products geared for textured hair on BET because its the BLACK ENTERTAINMENT CHANNEL! DUH!! Thats not racist, it’s truthful! Watch Telemundo and they will speak in Spanish! Geez!!

Yonni, I agree with you, EVERY biracial child has different hair, even children from the same family. I have 2 customers who are biracial sisters and are as different as night and day when it comes to their hair.

DeShavonn, I also agree with you, it shouldnt matter the color of their skin, as long as they are experienced with all types of hair, and its not racist that she has isnt used to taking care of his hair, and thats not what I was implying. I also might trim his hair a bit if he was mine, but I dont think she’s a bad mom at all!

Mom2Ethan on

Everyone has a “Bad Hair” Day. And who knows, maybe Seal likes his boys to have their hair longer… Dads do get a say too sometimes.

=P

PSB on

Seal and Heidi obviously like the natural look on their kids. Why is it Heidi’s “fault” for not doing his hair differently? Maybe both Seal and Heidi love a natural-looking afro and don’t believe in using any hair products on babies. They may have a more hippie-style or outlook. It’s all a matter of taste. I’m sure if Seal disliked what Heidi was doing, he’d say something, but obv they both like the hair this way.

Huh? on

Are we looking at the same kids? God those are some ugly kids.
