Supermodel Heidi Klum has hit back at critics who say her daughters are too young to be in high heels and stresses that they can wear whatever they want to.
Heidi’s fashion choices are often noted by onlookers. As one of the world’s most famous supermodels, Heidi no doubt puts a lot of thought into every outfit she wears.
So it’s no surprise that her daughters, 14-year-old Helene and eight-year-old Lou have taken an interest in the fashion world and like to join in and play dress up with their mum.
It’s for this reason Heidi doesn’t see her daughters wearing heels as a big deal.
Speaking to Elle magazine the mum-of-four explains: ‘People get upset, especially in Germany, if they see my daughters wearing high heels. Big deal!’

For Heidi, wearing heels is a bit of fun and she can see why her girls would want to wear them occasionally. She stresses that as long as they focus on school and are good kids, they can wear what they want.
She said: ‘If we go to a restaurant, they like to get dressed up. It’s fun for them,” she said. “So what if they hobble on their little heels for 20 steps from the car to the restaurant? As long as they’re good kids and they get good grades, they can wear what they want to wear.’
Heidi is also mum to 12-year-old Henry and 11-year-old Johan, her ex-husband, musician Seal is the father to her children.
The mum-of-four has a tendency to spark debate among parents. Last year she described her sons as ‘sexy’ which many branded inappropriate.
Heidi joked that she probably shouldn’t say that any several people took to social media to share their thoughts on the comment.
