Heidi Klum: My feet always hurt

Heidi Klum embraces wearing high heels all the time, despite them causing her feet discomfort.

The 40-year-old star keeps herself busy with her successful modelling career and various TV appearances. When she isn't in the spotlight Heidi knows she should give herself a break from the uncomfortable footwear, but has got into the habit of keeping them on.

“I’ve been working as a model for 20 years, and I’m always, always, always, always in my heels. I’m so used to my feet hurting... I probably wear heels more than I wear flats," she admitted to People.

“[I] rarely [have time to relax]. Sometimes if I have to go straight from work to the airport, then I will bring something in my bag to change into. After I fly and have swollen feet, then I put some flat shoes on afterward, but I normally don’t.”

While she wears sky-high stilettos for her work Heidi wants to ease her daughters into grown-up fashion. She has little girl Leni with former boyfriend Flavio Briatore and Lou with her musician ex Seal, with whom she also had sons Henry and Johan.

“Leni has some heels. Lou has a little cha-cha heel. Every once in a while they get to wear them, like if we go to a special dinner. But I don’t think you should form their little feet into heels yet," Heidi smiled.

Heidi also spoke her habit of flaunting her fabulous figure in snaps on social networking sites such as Instagram. She recently revealed it is her mom Erna who captures the risqué snaps and the blonde star seems proud of her parent's photography skills.

“My most sexy photos I would say she took. She’s like, ‘Ooh, move this way, move that way!” Heidi laughed.

“There’s one people talked about where I was hugging a palm tree and I was topless? My mom took that one. When I had a sandy butt? My mom took that one. So my mom is responsible for those pictures.”
