BALL JUGGLERS

Divorced Mother of 4, Heidi Klum Talks Single Parenthood Post-Seal

Heidi Klum has more than aspiring designers on the brain!

The 42-year-old split from her husband Seal in 2012 and she's almost hyper-focused on making sure their four kids are aware of their mom's hard work.

"Women are capable of juggling a lot of balls -- we do things that guys just cannot do. Men typically can juggle only one ball, and even then they're like, 'I'm confused. Should I put it in my right or left hand?'" she jokes in the new issue of Redbook magazine. "A lot of them have a very hard time just trying to figure out what to do with that one ball. And often they want us to hold that one, too!"

Between hosting Project Runway and Germany's Next Top Model, Klum also finds time to raise Leni, 11, Henry, 10, Johan, 8, and six-year-old Lou.

"Obviously things have changed, but they haven't changed drastically," the supermodel explains in reference to life post-Seal. "He was never your typical dad who left for work in the morning with his briefcase and would be home by dinnertime every night. He traveled a lot. The kids knew it was part of his job. I'm a mom and a dad at the same time."

Surprisingly down to Earth, the aging beauty relates to everyone making their way through life and its unwelcome affects on the human body. 

"Would it be nice if my skin and body still looked the way it did when I was 25? Sure," the Emmy Award-winner says in the interview. "But the fact is, your body changes when you have children; you get wrinkles as you get older. I like that I have laugh lines from smiling too much."
