Heidi Klum making time for family and exercise despite her busy schedule
By Scott Huver and Jessica Wedemeyer
Heidi Klum isn't just a supermodel. She's also a super-mom. In addition to raising her four children, ages 3 to 8, and appearing in three reality-TV shows, she also manages a constantly growing empire of fashion and lifestyle brands -- and manages to look damn good doing it! So what's her secret?
"I plan ahead," she told reporters of managing her busy schedule while promoting "America's Got Talent." "My fitness is suffering a little bit because myself always comes last."
That may come as a surprise to anyone who's caught a picture of the German beauty's fit physique of late. But just like all working moms, Heidi struggles to build her exercise routine around her mommy duties.
"On Sundays, [my kids] do gymnastics, and while they do gymnastics, I do an hour [of exercise]," she said. "I try to incorporate gymnastics and working out a little bit into my everyday routine. Like over the weekend, we were at home playing in the pool, [so I did] a few laps with the kids. We have a big trampoline outside. We have two German shepherds, and I take them on walks. It's incorporating that into my daily life."
That's the No. 1 piece of advice the single mom would like to impart to her fellow busy moms: "Try to work it into your daily routine," she said. "That's how I do it. It's hard -- you have to get dinner on the table and get your kids to school, make their lunchboxes, everything. It's hard! So you have to try to make it work somehow for yourself."
Heidi's exercise routine isn't the only thing that's taken a backseat to her full-time job as a mom: "I don't do spas and any of that stuff," she said. "I haven't shopped in a long time. I am with my family, and my weekends are always off."
