She may make it look easy, but Project Runway host Heidi Klum admits that raising her four children – Leni, 7, Henry, 5, Johan, 4, and Lou, 22 months – has its challenges.
“It’s a huge responsibility to have four kids,” Klum tells Us Weekly. “They all have different likes and dislikes and activities that they want to do. You have to learn how to juggle all of that, and at the same time, give them each the love that they need.
When you have one [child], you can focus on one,” Heidi continues. “With four, you have to make sure [your attention] is all spread out just right. You have to understand how different they all are! And at the end of the day, there is not much time left for you!”
Luckily, Klum says that her kids are “a united bunch,” which makes things a lot easier to manage.
“They always stick together and take care of each other,” gushes the supermodel mama. “They love each other! They love helping Lou. They like to feed her [and] they include her in all their activities.”
Another big help – other than hubby, Seal? The family’s two German Shepherds Max and Freddy. Heidi says that the dogs “are starting to teach them about responsibility and caring for someone else. They are also learning about rules, schedules with feeding and walking and sharing. Having the two dogs is big time sharing for the kids!”
