us weeklyKlum is featured on the cover of Us Weekly‘s Body issue. Klum is questioned on her love life, family and her ideal body shape.

Not everyone wants to fit into a pair of skinny jeans. Some women feel sexier when they have more meat on their bones. Their guy likes it more or they like it more. Me, I like it when I’m more fit. I feel very comfortable with the way I am right now.

Klum, Kirsten dating

Klum and Kirsten are dating. Klum has known Kirsten for years because he works as her bodyguard. About his relationship with her children:

They like him very much. This is also one reason why I’m so fond of him. He’s been helping me for four years now. And he takes wonderful care of the kids. He plays with them, he protects them. I trust him.

On keeping her relationship low profile:

Martin is not hiding. He’s just not the sort of guy looking for the spotlight. He prefers to stay in the background. There will always be people who will criticize whoever I live with, what kind of clothes I wear or what hairstyle I have. At the end of the day, you have to do what makes you happy. That’s the rule I live by.

Magazine Cover

fl0n6gtk0d37tg00Klum appears on the cover of the May 2012 issue of Allure magazine. She talks about her early days of modelling and not doing runway.

I was too curvy and too busty and a little too short. and I was a little bit self-conscious about it. But I was by no means heavy, I just—well, you have hips and boobs, and that’s it. Haute couture, you don’t really see girls with big boobs. And I always wanted first to be a model. So I had to say, “OK, you’re going to find other things to do in this industry, or it’s maybe not my industry.”

I never thought they’d give up on their marriage. They seemed so committed. She thinks life should always be fun and colorful. But it’s not always like that in a marriage. I think the spark left their marriage, and that wasn’t okay for her. She wants everything to be perfect, and when it’s not it doesn’t work for her.

Klum, Seal split

Klum and Seal split after almost seven years of marriage.

While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate. We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.

Lou Sulola Samuel is born


heidi2Seal and Klum welcome their daughter, Lou Samuel, into the world at 7:46 pm in Los Angeles.

It’s difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children. Anyone who has a family will tell you this. Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all of your heart, how then can one possibly find more heart with which to love another?

Project Runway

Klum hosts the TVshow Project Runway. This show follows a group fashion designers that compete for a chance to break into the industry. Each week, a designer is eliminated from the competition after exhibiting their work in front of a judges’ panel.

I didn’t want to just show up and do the normal things I do when I am modeling. I wanted to have some input into the show and have some ideas brought in. I liked the aspect of being more than just the host.

On losing weight:

I did the show when the baby was just three months and I was chunkier than I am now. I had a hard time finding certain things for the show.

Seal, Klum engaged

Heidi-Klum-Ring-25karatsSeal proposes to Klum on a vacation in the Rockies.

Seal took me by helicopter. He had an igloo built there and they’d brought up everything: a bed with sheets inside the igloo. 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 hardcore. But I was ecstatic.
