Heidi Klum’s playdate philosophy: the more, the merrier! “It’s like a little preschool at my house,” the America’s Got Talent judge told Us Weekly at the Hollywood Beauty Awards on Sunday, February 21, in Hollywood. The mom — clad in a skintight, one-shoulder Elizabeth and James gown — cracked: “I always like when the party’s at my house instead of somewhere else so I can see what’s going on!”

Though Klum’s children, Helene, 11, Henry, 10, Johan, 9, and Lou, 6, are “outside a lot,” they also love logging time together in the kitchen. 

“We cook a lot at home,”  the supermodel told Us. “We eat at 6 o’clock together, my family and I. We really try to always have fresh food, not so much processed food.” Helene’s latest culinary milestone: “[She] baked her first cake today!” Klum bragged. “She made a lemon cake.”

Meanwhile, the 42-year-old, who split from husband Seal in 2012, said she’s grown emotionally over the past few years. 

“I mean, we learn every day,” Klum said. “I’ve had a roller-coaster ride of a life, and I enjoyed that. All the ups and the downs, as long as it goes up again. I’ve had a very exciting life. I hope it continues that way.”
