Heidi Klum Covers 'Elle' April 2012 - Exclusive

Heidi Klum lets out a big smile on the cover of Elle magazine‘s April issue.

Here’s what the 38-year-old supermodel had to share with the mag:

On her breakup with Seal: “I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness—with you wanting it or not wanting it—is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life. And sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn’t expect.”

On her reluctance to talk to the press about her split with Seal: “People don’t need to know who did what. I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary— especially for our children—to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”

On when she feels most beautiful: “To be honest, it’s with my children. In my job, people tell you that all the time: ‘This shoot was great. You look amazing.’ But you never know what they say when you turn away. You can’t think about that—you’d go mental. But the kids don’t edit anything. When they kiss you and tell you they love you and say, ‘Mama, you’re the best’ – that’s really the only thing you care about.”

    Beautiful cover! It’s so nice to see her gracing ELLE in such a natural and lovely way.

  • yep

    Nice article and lovely photo!

  • Annie

    I love herrrr

  • Kate

    Good for her on keeping the relationship drama to herself! I hate when I see people (celeb or otherwise) who feel the need to bring the ex down in front of everyone else including their children. It sucks when relationships don’t work out, but the kids shouldn’t have to hear every sordid detail.

  • shf

    posing on an Elle cover milking it for w/e else is left. Go away ! you falunted your whole relationsip in interviews,red carpets and photoshoots for years and now you say otherwise. she is a fool. (and never was a true supermodel) Claudia Schiffer is THE German model.

  • kate

    i dunno she puts on a good game face but I have always been bothered with her answers about why she she fell for Seal. Some of you may not remember but Heidi was dumped by her boyfriend while pregnant with th guys kid (her first). Seal seemed to be a knight in shining armor dating a woman having another guys kid. I don’t know..anyway I think their relationship ran its natural course considering how they got together. Seal tho is having a mid life crisis cus I saw pics of him driving a new Maserati and wearing neon yellow nail polish okay? lol

  • Ken

    She doesn’t even want to speak positively? Wow. Seal said the most wonderful things about her after the split.

  • zyj

    good for her – keep it to yourself. For the kids sake i say its the best way to be. (and she wasnt only dumped by leni’s ‘father’, he also didnt want the baby)

  • sara

    @Ken: positive or negative; it’d all be taken the wrong way.


    I am female, 20,a young and big beautiful woman in US,i just wonder if i can meet a man who can love me here,because i am single at present and i need someone’s support..i uploaded my hot photos on connectbβw cΟm.under the name nancy099,maybe you want to check out my photos first!

  • ex nihilo

    beautiful here

  • Soap

    honestly thought it was a pub stunt. cynical times. they were a nice couple.

  • mousey

    never thought she was pretty. I did like her much better with her darker hair in her early days. meh.

  • commentariat

    She should be kissing Seal’s feet that he repaired her reputation and shielded her from the humiliation of being dumped while pregnant by an old fart. He came in and put a ring on it and adopted her child. But she can’t say anything nice about him? This is the thanks he gets. This is what happens when men try to play Captain Save a Hoe.

  • Love

    Ok, what is up with these people getting covers on the fashion magazines after their divorces? Is it a new trend?
