NEW YORK (AP) _ Heidi Klum prides herself on being practical. The German supermodel married Grammy-winning singer Seal on a beach in Mexico, shops for groceries online and feeds her 14-month-old daughter, Leni, whatever she eats.
``We tried baby food for, like a month,'' a seven-months-pregnant Klum tells Vitals Woman in its fall issue. ``But now she eats whatever I eat. At least she's eating better things than macaroni and cheese.''
Klum and Seal were married in May. They began dating last year, shortly after her breakup with Renault Formula One team boss Flavio Briatore, who is Leni's father.
Leni experienced her first European concert tour when she was 2 months old. ``We just bolted a crib to the floor of the bus,'' Klum tells the magazine.
As for the arrival of baby No. 2, the 32-year-old Klum says: ``I'm lucky. Sometimes I even forget I'm pregnant. And then, boom! I get a kick in the stomach!''
Klum is host and producer of ``Project Runway'' on Bravo. She has been taping the second season of the Emmy-nominated show that pits aspiring designers against each other for the right to design a collection that will be presented at New York Fashion Week.
``Last season, I thought the grocery-store idea was so stupid,'' she says of the past challenge in which contestants constructed clothes out of supermarket finds. ``But then they made dresses out of cornhusks and a lawn chair! Clearly, I was wrong.''
Klum says a Victoria's Secret photo shoot in early fall will likely be her first gig when she returns to modeling.
And what if she's not quite back in shape?
``They'll retouch it,'' she says. ``We all don't look the way we look in magazines.''
