Leni looks cute, adorable outfit. Henry looks just like Seal.

Nicole on

Lakeshore is an awesome store! I work in Early Childhood and all of their toys are developmentally appropriate for children of different age groups and most are reasonably priced too. It’s a nice change from all the Elmo/Dora/Nemo/Cars toys kids have now.

Sasha on

What an absolute cutie is Leni! I wish them all the best.

Althea on

Are those two women nannies?

I don’t mean to be rude or something, but you had a post yesterday about Heidi Klum saying that she’s lost the pregnancy weight because she’s running around her kids all the time.

But from what I have observed these past few times you posted about her is that she has a nanny for each kid and sometimes even her mother helping her out!

I mean, to some there’s nothing wrong with that but it irks me that she just won’t admitt that she’s getting (a lot of) help.

If I’m wrong please correct me.

Sarah’s note: She has two nannies, and her mom sometimes when she’s visiting from Germany. She didn’t get nannies until after Henry was born, but I’m not sure if she’s ever said anything about them.

Bella on

Is it just me or did Henry grow up really quickly and I just didn’t notice? :-)

I love Leni’s outfit. Her shoes just go perfectly with that dress!

J-Lin on

I wonder why they don’t employ any black nannies? Their children are multi-racial and they are doing them a disservice by exposing them oo only to one side.

Rachael on

Leni is very cute, but is it just me or does she seem to have a scowl on her face in most pictures? I’m sure those kids want for nothing, I’d like to see her smile more! The boys are so cute too!

neves on

Please Heidi, trim your babies hair down!

ME on

I think it’s ridiculous to have two nannies for three kids plus mom/dad and sometimes grandma, I feel sorry for celebrities they just would not make it in the real world. A friend of mine has five kids and a full time job and her husband just got home from Iraq, and she did it all without the help of a nanny.

Nausicaa on

Althea – how do you know Heidi doesn’t run after her kids? The paparazzi don’t record every moment of every day of this family’s life. Maybe she does have regular outings without nannies – and even if she doesn’t, I’m sure the kids give her plenty to run after just inside the house and in the backyard.

Leni is such a doll. That’s such a cute, summery dress she’s wearing, and the pigtails and the pout make her look so huggable but so mischeavous at the same time. Henry’s hair is all over the place. I like the necklace he’s wearing.

ab on

I know things are very different for most of us! Having three kids out and about as much as she seems to, I don’t have any problem with her bringing along a nanny for each child. They are watched, followed, photographed, etc almost daily, it seems. with the ability to do it, if nothing else it seems not a bad safety precaution with having three very small children, a lot of attention from the public, etc. In addition, it doesn’t necessarily mean that when at home, etc. things aren’t different. To me she always appears hands on and in the mix — so so what if she has some extra hands around if it allows them to be safe and be out and about, etc!

Isabel on

I have to commend Heidi Klum considering all the projects she has going on: her jewelry line, modeling, project runaway etc. She is always out and about with her children and so is Seal. If I were a celebrity and as well known as her I would have nannies as well. I can imagine all the paparrazi following them around. I’m sure Heidi doesn’t like it but she has to take precautions.

Althea, I don’t know why it would irk you, she is photographed so much with the nannies. What do you want her to do have a press conference anouncing she has nannies?

Christine on

I agree…I’d probably take all 3 of my kids out more if I had help. Especially in NYC.

Gear Question:
Is the Orbit a travel system? Does the bucket seat double as an infant carrier?

Sarah’s note: Yes, it’s a car seat/stroller combo. They have a toddler seat that attaches to the frame too, for when baby outgrows the carseat.

Ana on

Jesus, how many strollers do they have? 1 Twin Rally Maclaren, a Techno XT Maclaren, a Techno Classic Maclaren, an I’Coo Pico 4, two Bugaboo Frogs, a Quinny Buzz, a Stokke Xplory, an Orbit, a Silver Cross Classic Sleepover Pram…well, can’t say I wouldn’t have all them if I could afford it! Ahahah
They’re all so cute! Johan is such a chubby sweet baby! Leni looks so much like her mommy and Henry is such a big little boy!

popi on

Heidi’s children are really cute, and Henry is getting cuter and cuter every time we see him. I also think his natural hair is cute, I don’t see why it should be trimed down. His little fro is cute!

Shan on

I have to say that after the experience of trying to shop while keeping up with one child, I would gladly take a nanny or two to help me out. I can not imagine haveing to wrangle three children, and do what I needed to do.

Lorus on

I agree with the other posters. If I had 3 little kids I’d love to have a nanny or two with me while out shopping. It’s extremely hard to concentrate on reading boxes/instructions when you have to also keep an eye on wandering children. Plus being a celebrity I think you have to watch your kids even closer because of all the paps and potential harm do-ers.

I have a small concern though. The orbit baby infant seat only goes until 22lbs and Johan is quite the little chunk! I hope she moves him into a rearfacing convertible seat soon.

Althea on

Yes, I don’t know them personally and thus I can’t judge them and I had no intention of doing so.

I simply made an observation made on the pics we see of them ocassionally.

If my view came across as judgemental then I’m sorry.

And no, I wasn’t asking for a press conference from her to announce she has nannies!!

I just wish that celebrities were more open about the “getting help” thing.

Aqua on

If someone says that she “lost the pregnancy weight because she’s running around [after] her kids all the time,” it just means that she’s naturally skinny and her body regulated its metabolism so that whatever food/exercise she put into it would get her down to her normal weight.

A woman who was naturally fifty pounds heavier than Heidi could have taken in the same number of calories and exercised just as much and her body would have used those resources in such a way that she’d have returned to her normal heidi+50 weight.

daisy on

What I dont understand is why you would go through the whole rigamarole of taking 3 small kids out shopping when you could leave them at home with their multiple nannies…the kids would surely have a better time and you could shop in peace.

karrie on

I agree with Shan. My one child, who is a little younger than Leni, is a handful at times. Help would be nice! Really though, I think help–at least while out running errands–would be a must with three very young children AND the paparazzi and other idiots that probably follow the family around.

Maybe Leni scowls because she dislikes cameras? My son gets rather tired of me trying to document so much of his childhood. :)I imagine poor Leni probably has cameras shoved in her face every time she leaves the house.

Also,I think the nanny holding Henry looks very German. Many people hire sitters that friends or family have used or recco’d, and I personally think there is a good chance that is the case here as well.

Beautiful family.

lilkunta on

I know they have $ but it is ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS for a 2 yr old’s shirt (Henry wears an Ed Hardy bee tee;$60; size 8 only)that will get food stains to cost $60.

I’m happy for Heidi and Seal. Seal was GREAT in stepping it and fathering Leni( does Flavio aacknowledge her at all?). Seal def loved Heidi’s supermodelness as 2 more kids came back to back.

I agree JLin. I hope Heidi hires an African . . Daddy shouldnt be the only brown face the kids see.

I also hope the kids all learn German.

Wow Ana you keep traack of all the strollers ?

Karrie: What makes u say the lady holding Henry is German ? She just looks tan to me.

All the kids are adorable. I’d love to take them home with me.

And Leni does look like she’s not having the best day, but to me she looks like she missed her nap and still wants it, lol.

And if Heidi has the resources to have three nannies to help with the kids, so be it. It’s her money, her children, and she can do what she wants. As for leaving the kids at home, maybe she likes taking them with her. And when you want to take three children to the store or wherever, it’d probably be a lot easier to keep track of them with a few extra hands. And really, she’s not always seen out with the nannies/entourage. It’s usually when she’s in a busy place or has all the children with her and not just one or two.

Anyway, love the photos.

intrigued on

ok…
1. these people are celebrities which means all of those strollers they have are sent to them… they dont pay for anything, so that is why they have so many.
2. they have 3 nannies, and they are around more to help out than be full time hands on. seal and heidi are definitely taking care of these children, but with 3 under age 3 and full time careers that would make most of our minds boggle, the extra help is necessary.
3. the nannies are culturally diverse. there has been a mexican nanny, and german nannies – the kids speak german and english. there is no question that if a black nanny were qualified enough they would hire him/her. they are quite challenged by finding good nannies regardless of race/culture.
4. this is a most AMAZING family…

SOOKOOYAH_TWINS on

um… Get an African American nanny to take care of HENRY’S hair..

It is sad..

I am black and I have the same hair as Henry and it needs to be taken care of. he must scream when they try to comb it.

Seriously Seal should know better..
