Oh no! Heidi Klum revealed that she had just gotten over having lice — given to her by her kids — on the Wednesday, Oct. 28 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I’m actually lice-free now as of a few days ago,” the supermodel, 42, said.

So just how did the German supermodel get the lice?

“My daughter was itching and then she had to go to the nurse and then they looked and sure enough they found a little egg, and I mean they’re beyond small, so we had the lice fairies come over to our house,” Klum said.

The mom of four also offered an explanation about what she calls the “ice fairies.”

“There are these fairies that come to the house and brush you for hours and get all of these lice out of your hair,” she joked. “They’re fairies. You do get a certificate from the lice fairies when you go to the school because the school wants to know.”

DeGeneres then jokingly asked the former Victoria’s Secret model whether she bathes.

“Yeah, of course we do!” Klum retorted.

Klum shares four children — Leni, 11, Henry, 10, Johan, 9, and Lou, 6 — with ex-husband Seal.
