“What I’ve learned is that you wake up in the morning, hopefully the sun is still shining and you just keep on going,” Klum told Celebuzz at the launch of her Babies “R” Us line, Truly Scrumptious.
And she certainly has stuck to that motto. Though she stepped down from her 13-year run as a Victoria’s Secret model in 2010, Klum’s brand has only blossomed in recent years. From her hosting duties on Project Runway (now in its 10th season), to her partnership with AOL, to designing a brand-new children’s line for Babies ‘R’ Us, Klum’s career certainly hasn’t suffered because of her public split from Seal.
How does the mom of four manage to juggle her many commitments?
“I think if you love what you do, you’ll always find time for it,” Klum said. “And for me it’s not hard to come up with new and exciting clothes. If you love what you do, it just kind of flows. It goes easy.”
And the creative juices were certainly flowing when Klum crafted her new Babies “R” Us line, Truly Scrumptious.
“I’ve been shopping for baby clothes and toys for the past eight years,” Klum explained. “And I’m always on the hunt looking for the coolest, newest…and, obviously, coming from the fashion world and looking still to the runways, I want to incorporate cool things into little people’s clothes.”
Now she’s doing just that, in a line that ranges from infant to toddler clothing. “I love it. I enjoy it. I am one of those moms who goes crazy in a kid’s store. I do. I buy things that they sometimes don’t even want to have. Like, I have so much fun shopping for them.”
And her children – Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 6, and Lou, 2 – will also have a hand in the fashion line.
“My children will have input in the designs in the future,” Klum gushes. “I’ve just been looking more and more at my son Johan, who is a really great painter. He draws all these fun caricatures. So I’m going to have some of his drawings printed on the boys’ t-shirts.”
Klum continued, “Sometimes you hire artists and they paint, and it’s really hard for them to make it look a child did it. And I’m like, why am I not just hiring my son to do this?”
