Supermodel Heidi Klum has admitted in an interview with People magazine that she spends a ‘small fortune’ on her children when their baby teeth fall out, after she got it wrong from the start. The mother-of-four was asked about her children at an Operation Shower event for military mothers, and she talked about planning life around the kids, as well as handing over cash as The Tooth Fairy, when their milk teeth started to come out.
Klum, 40, told the publication, ‘Teeth are falling out, [but] the [kids] don’t mind it because they get money. I messed it up with the very first tooth that came out – I gave 20 dollars.’ The Project Runway host has four children; Leni, 9, Henry, 8, Johan, 7, and Lou, 4, which means that the cost of paying for the teeth certainly starts to add up. She went on to say ‘I had no idea. I thought 20 bucks was the right thing to do with the first tooth, but now with four kids and all of these teeth that are coming, it’s another small fortune.’
As well as keeping up with their dental health, the supermodel has to balance her career with family life; she added ‘I have to schedule and plan my life really well [so] that I have enough off days with my family. The weekends, for example, don’t work and I’m always home at the end of the day to have dinner and bath and bedtime.’
