Heidi Klum is a savvy businesswoman and world-famous celebrity mom. Spotted out regularly with her kids, the Daily Mail UK has been reporting everything from her going from soccer mom to beach bunny wonder mommy for Mother’s Day week 2013. But this runway model’s most positive attribute is not just sensational parenting. She goes mad for eco-friendly beauty. And that’s why for this Mother’s Day, we are nominating her for the green mom of the year award — for her commitment to environmentally conscious parenting and living life as a famous humanitarian. Bottom line, she’s not just another pretty face. She truly is a green celebrity!
If you don’t believe us that such a glamorous woman could go green, check out the Heidi Klum AOL website. She is passionate about recycled, renewable and recyclable clothing, accessories and more. Her AOL fashion website features pieces made from organic and sustainable materials.
And more — she’s a humanitarian, too. Independent Woman reports that Klum was honored on February 7 for her work with the American Foundation for Aids Research (amfAR). She stole the show at a gala award event at Cipriani Wall Street, too.
E Online News reports that her ex-husband, Seal is also eco-friendly. Not wasting any time, the newly single bachelor reportedly offered $6 million for a 5,500 square feet contemporary mansion.
According to Biography.com, Heidi Klum was born on June 1, 1973 in Bergisch-Gladbach, Germany. At age 18, she started modeling and moved to New York. She went on to become arguably one of the best high fashion models in history.
After working as a Victoria’s Secret model, she had her big break with the 1998 Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover. She had an active film and television career, with such productions as Spin City, Blow Dry, Ella Enchanted and The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.
She became a fashion and a television sensation as the host of Project Runway, which started out on BRAVO network. The Emmy award-winning show lasted for several years.
She was pregnant with her first child, a daughter Leni when she broke up with her boyfriend and Italian racecar team driver Flavio Briatore. Klum gave birth to her daughter Leni after she started a new relationship with British singer Seal. She and Seal married in May 2005 and have a son, Henry Gunther Ademola. Son Johan was born on November 26, 2006, and daughter, Lou was born on October 9, 2009. She broke up with Seal last April and started a relationship with her bodyguard, Martin Kristen.
Klum is currently filming Germany’s Next Top Model, according to Perez Hilton. But get this — she recently took time out to play the part of the hero in her own real life story.
Klum rescued her two children and two nannies from a potentially life threatening situation when the group faces drowning at a Hawaiian beach. On May 12, 2013, the good news was swirling on the next that Klum never even realized there were paparazzi cameras in the area when she helped save the day.
To that end, the green celebrity nom and environmentally conscious humanitarian certainly does deserve some of our free press and praise this Mother’s Day.
