The fashion mogul may maintain an air of mystery when it concerns family, but she does share some snippets in next month's Elle
Within the magazine’s pages, Heidi touches on a myriad of subjects including early fashion faux-pas, her idea of what's beautiful, and of course, her very recent and very publicized split from 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.”
The amazonian host of Project Runway does not wish to talk details surrounding the break, preferring to keep that part of herself private, at least for now:
“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.”
Heidi also shares her non-chalance over Seal’s willingness to publically talk about the split, just days after it happened:
“he's a grown man it’s not my place to “tell him what to do and what not to do.”
Ultimatley, Klum just want’s to protect and set a strong example for her 4 children, Henry, Johan, Lou and Leni.
"I'm a lioness. I have four cubs. I'm a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them,” she said. “I don't want to talk about them, or him, or me."
Oh Heidi, we feel for you! Love gives us the biggest highs, but the lows are as deep as an Ocean.
