Heidi Klum on Operation Shower, motherhood and fulfilling her bucket list
Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with model mom Heidi Klum at a recent Operation Shower event, where the host of Project Runway and judge on America’s Got Talent talked about the event, being a working mom and her Truly Scrumptious collection for Babies “R” Us.
Klum tells the website she got involved with Operation Shower, an organization that hosts baby showers for military families, through Babies ‘R’ Us, and that she wanted to participate and “gift a bunch of things to these moms.”
The mother of four tells Celebrity Baby Scoop her Truly Scrumptious line includes cribes, bedding, lamps, rugs, wall stickers, strollers, diaper bags and clothing for girls and boys size infant to 5.
“I think that kids should have fun and be comfortable, and I wanted the clothes to be easily washed,” Klum tells the website. “You have to wash the clothes all the time because you want them to have fun and get dirty. I have four kids myself and my little ones love color, bright, and bedazzle, and they are not interested in black or white tee shirts or sophisticated things; they want fun stuff. The louder, the brighter, and the more ruffles, the more they are attracted to it.”
As for juggling work and family, Klum tells Celebrity Baby Scoop she’s like other moms — it’s just that her job is on TV.
“When other moms go to an office from nine to five, I go into a studio and shoot something,” she tells the website. “It’s the same, but it just looks different from the outside. My hours are similar and I’m quite lucky that I have the weekends off and can ask to start earlier so that I can come home earlier. I have a lot more freedom, in a way. I don’t have a boss, let’s say, where you have to be there at a certain time and stay until a certain time.”
But Klum isn’t letting work get in the way of completing her bucket list, she tells CBS.
“To be honest with you, I try to live my bucket list,” she tells the website. “I try to do it all now, because I have the opportunity to. … If I want to go somewhere, I go there, and if I want to do something, I do it. I am very fortunate that way and I know that. I know that a lot of people have to save money to go to a certain place, and I understand that not everyone can do that. I feel like I am doing my bucket list now.”
