Super model, TV star, perfume entreprenuer. Is there anything Heidi Klum can’t do? That would be a negative. As she launched her new perfume, “Shine,” Heidi talked to reporters about being a working mother, her new scent and whether Seal likes her better with it on or off!
Heidi told reporters when the scent was narrowed down to the final three her hubby helped at that point. She recalled, “He wasn’t involved from the very beginning because the journey is a very long journey until you get to the point where you are like, ‘Ok this is nice now,’ and the he kind of helped me of the final three.”
As for the feminine scent, Heidi mentioned she was looking to create a “beautiful, warm scent that’s not overpowering.” As for whether or not Seal likes her better with it on or au natural, she responded, “Or…after you know what? [Laughs] I don’t know, you have to ask him. I think in general he likes a variety even with clothes. And, as a girl you like to change things around like theclothes you wear, makeup and for him I think he likes to have fun and play around with different things. I am not always the same. On the inside I am!”
As for being a working mother, the super svelte mama told OK! when it comes to expectant moms, it’s important to relax. She advised, “To take all of the advice with a pinch of salt because everyone sort of gives you advice when you are pregnant. Everyone sort of has something to say and ultimately, you just find your own way and you have so much time to figure it out.”
“Its not like all of a sudden they are born and they are full on, they are not. They sleep most of the time so you can gradually learn with your child. Its not lie you buy a car and its like whoa, its driving, crashing into something right away, needs gas or I don’t know. Like a baby, it all happens very slowly in a way. They eat and they poop…”
So, whether or not she would push her kids toward the industry, Heidi wouldn’t encourage them. She explained, “I don’t really want to encourage them in any direction. I feel like they are going to find their own direction, when they are old enough and they have to think about work, which they don’t yet. They are still kids. I mean I have a 7-year-old, 6-year-old, 5 and almost 2. They are not worried about what they are going to be or what work is all about. They know that mommy and daddy go to work. They don’t really know the whole thing.”
