She’s pushing 40 and is a mother of four – but Heidi Klum isn’t afraid to bare it all.
“I’m proud to be able to say, in this day and age, I haven’t done anything,” Klum tells the magazine. “Everyone has a view of what’s not pretty and [plastic surgery] just doesn’t look pretty to me.”
“I had dreams of how I wanted things to be and planned for things and, as we all know today, they don’t always turn out as you dreamt them in your head,” she says.
“Sometimes life throws you a curveball,” Klum continues, “and then you just figure it out and deal with it, but my dream always was that – to have the perfect family and have lots of children and a beautiful garden and trampolines and swings and things.”
The leggy model also dished about her early career struggles: “I never did fashion shows – not in Paris or Berlin or even in New York City. I tried but no one would book me.”
Although her marriage did not turn out the way she’d hoped, the supermodel and mom says she has no regrets about her life. “No, I don t resent anything that ever happened. Things just turn out the way they turn out.”
