Heidi Klum In Marie Claire

The gorgeous Heidi Klum graces the June 2008 cover of Marie Claire. Inside she talks about meeting Seal, her body after baby, parenting, and how she loves being a mom to Leni, 4, Henry, 2 1/2, and Johan, 17 months. Here’s some highlights below:

On Motherhood: “I always wanted to be a mom,” Klum says in her lightly accented English. “At Thanksgiving, I have my parents there, I have screaming kids, I have a big fat turkey – 18 pounds – sitting in the middle; legs are being ripped off that thing, you know what I mean? There’s life in the house. I don’t want to be wondering about how skinny I am, wondering what I’m going to eat because I don’t want to gain and I want to look hot and young, always and forever.”

On body after baby:“I always think, Look at how people were before they were pregnant,” Klum says. “If you were a toned, healthy, energetic person, most likely you will be like that again.” Cold comfort to the untoned and unhealthy, but the straight dope is sort of refreshing. “A lot of people come to me, and they’re like, ‘Will I look like you after I have the baby?’ And I say, ‘Well, how were you before?’ You can’t kid yourself.”

On meeting Seal while she was 5-months pregnant with Leni:“I was not looking for anybody,” says Klum, who has a five-year marriage to hairstylist Ric Pipino behind her. “He was just there. He walked in the door, and there he was. He looked good. I was like, Wow.”

On parenting differences: “I’m a little different in my head than he is,” she says. “He takes his sweet old time. When he explains things to them, he explains them.”

“I’m all for expressing yourself, but you also have to clean up after yourself,” she explains. “When Johan was attempting his first steps, I kept telling him, ‘Johan, you’re the last one. The others walked when they were 1. Get cracking!’”

    It should be noted that ex-husband Ric Pipino is not Leni’s father.

    I’m glad Seal came along when he did. He has given her stability and some great kids. He seems like a great dad.
