How Heidi Klum maintains her model figure as a mother-of-four

Apparently, running around after her adorable brood doubles as a workout!

She’s a model, designer, businesswoman, TV personality, occasional actress AND a mother to four sweet children, but where does Heidi Klum find the time to maintain her iconic look?
Speaking of her secrets to Shape magazine, the German-born beauty revealed that when she lacks the time for a sweat sesh the gym, she hits the park with her brood instead.
“I try to be as active as possible,” she told the publication. “I don’t have time for workouts every day. Being the mother of four kids is a workout in itself!”
“Balancing my work and their schedules makes it hard to find time for a traditional exercise routine, so we try to do as many outdoor activities as a family as possible,” the former Victoria’s Secret angel quipped, before revealing her family’s favourites.
“We love to go on bike rides, take our dogs hiking, or jump on the trampoline. That’s the best way to stay fit and healthy – do things that don’t feel like work.”
Heidi and her look-alike daughter love to spend time in the local park together.
With our fast-paced lives and increased desire to fit everything in, Heidi too understands that staying motivated can often be abit of a challenge, with exercise often dropping down a few slots on the To-Do list. Her advice?
"Whenever I need motivation, I think of the big picture. I remind myself that I'm staying active and eating right to live a better and healthier life. I want to be as healthy as possible for myself and my family."

Heidi first took the runway by storm 23 years ago. Since then, and after welcoming kids, Helene, 12, Henry, 11, Johan, nine, and Lou, seven, she admits has seen some changes.
“My body obviously has changed. I’m now 43.
“I’ve had four children!” she exclaims. “My stomach has stretched in and out and in and out and in and out four times. I've breastfed four children… You just have to embrace it, go with it, just roll with it."
But despite her body’s changes, the lingerie designer spares no thought for the industry’s critics. At the end of the day, it's not what anyone else thinks about my body but how I feel about myself. I'm working it and owning it!"
