The paparazzi often catches model mom, Heidi Klum, playing with her children — Leni, 4, Henry, 2, and Johan, 1, but there's a lot more to motherhood than what is captured in photographs. We had a chance to chat with the haute mama who had a few things to say about the experience.
- We love how your children are always dressing up in costumes (and even you and Seal get into the action). What is it about dressing up that is so fun for the family? You can’t take yourself too seriously. It’s all about having fun and really being full participants in all aspects of our children’s lives.
- Our readers want to know how you get that post pregnancy body runway ready so quickly. Any advice, diets, workout tips to share? I never diet, but I try to eat healthier after the baby. I also find that running around the house to keep up with three small children is a great workout in itself.

- You are raising your family in Los Angeles, but are always traveling for
work and pleasure. How do you manage it all as you become such a successful business woman and active mother while still maintaining a thriving marriage? My first priority is always my children and my husband. Everything else has to come second or it just doesn’t work. No matter how busy we are, we still make the time to take a few family vacations each year that everyone participates in. I try to be home more now that I have children and don’t travel as much as I used to.
- You once said, "Children are very addicting. Once they start growing up, you miss when they were little." Does this mean there will be more babies? Yes they are addicting. Each of them has their own personality and it is so amazing to see them grow and become their own person. No plans right now for more but you never know!
