Heidi Klum - "Marie Claire" June 2008

Heidi Klum -

Heidi Klum glams up the June 2008 cover of Marie Claire, on newsstands May 13. The 34-year-old supermodel extraordinarie opens up about her marriage with her musician husband Seal, the start of her modeling career and her greatest achievement to date – her three children.

On her desire to become a mother: “I always wanted to be a mom. 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 realistically losing baby weight: “I always think, Look at how people were before they were pregnant. If you were a toned, healthy, energetic person, most likely you will be like that again. A lot of people come to me, and they’re like, ‘Will I look like you after I have a baby?’ And I say, ‘Well, how were you before?’ You can’t kid yourself.”

On being advised not to start a family early: “Some people are afraid, especially in this industry, that if you are out of it, it’ll be hard to get back in it. I didn’t care. I thought, It’s my life, not yours. I was ready to take the chance and not get back into it if they decided they didn’t want me anymore.”

On her marriage proposal: “[Seal] took me by helicopter. He had an igloo built there, and they’d brought up everything: a bed with sheets inside the igloo, rose petals everywhere, candles. Very, very romantic! There was food and champagne, and then the helicopter left. It was a little scary, too, because you’re so cut off from the world. No trees, nothing – it was hard-core. But I was ecstatic. I loved it. It was wonderful.”

    she is right on, if you were a fat ugly cow before pregnancy , most likely you will be a fatter ugly cow after it!

    She’s fucking fierce

  • legs

    nothing special about her.

  • Lima

    Babies ruin a woman’s body. She and Angelina haven’t looked as fresh or youthful since having children. They’ve just lost most of their appeal. Jessica Alba is next.

    Can this woman ever pose anymore without her mouth open?

  • Halli

    Lima, a woman’s body changes after having babies – yes, you get wider hips, your tummy might be a bit stretched out, but it is not ruined unless you decide not to get back in shape. Heidi looks great. The process you are referring to is called aging. There’s no such thing as eternal youth and there are plenty of women who have not had any children that look like shit.

    fame whōre.

    In Lima’s slight defense here, I will vouch that most women will NEVER look the same as they did before their pregnancies. Sure, their bodies can sometimes get tinier than they were before with tons of workouts, but a gal naturally loses some freshness and vitality overall with her looks after having a baby. It’s hard to explain, but I guess just the stress of having a child period naturally ages a woman, no matter how young she is.
