Producer and host of hit show Project Runway, her own line of jeans for Jordache, make-up for Victoria’s Secret, and her recently debuted skin-care line, In an Instant, Heidi Klum is on top of the world and the proud mama wants her children — Leni, 4 ½, Henry, 3 ½, and Johan, 2 — to realize they too can accomplish all of their dreams. Officially taking the oath to become an American citizen in order to cast her vote for President Barack Obama in last year’s election, the 35-year-old admits in the April issue of Ladies’ Home Journal that she was determined to inspire her family.
“Having mixed-race children, I feel that when I tell them they can be anything, it now means they really can.”
While President Obama serves as a good role model for her brood, Heidi shares that the main man in her life — her husband of almost four years, Seal — has quite a few admirable qualities himself. “I have the best husband in the world,” she gushes. “He’s very involved.” For the couple, spending time together as a family and maintaining a sense of normalcy is a priority, with Heidi and Seal shuttling their kids to school each day. According to Heidi, they have their routine down pat! “We talk about the kids on the way there. Then we talk with the kids on the way back,” she laughs.
Although Heidi happily takes on the responsibilities of motherhood, she believes her ability to juggle a family with a career as a celebrity is nothing to brag about.
“I don’t have the hard everyday life that so many working mothers face.”
