Heidi Klum on Her Emmy Dress: "I Can Let It All Hang Out"

Heidi Klum is ready to do her runway walk down the Emmy Awards red carpet, and — weeks away from giving birth to her new daughter — she’s thrilled she won’t be sucking in her tummy. “The great thing about being pregnant and going to these things is that I don’t have to suck my stomach in,” the supermodel and Project Runway host told PEOPLE at Los Angeles Confidential’s pre-Emmy party. “It’s fabulous! I can let it all out.” Klum, who’s nominated as Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program, revealed that she’ll be wearing a Marchesa gown designed especially for her by Georgina Chapman at Klum’s request. She said she hasn’t put too much thought into prepping around her pregnancy for the big day. “It wasn’t really hard for me, but it was hard for the woman that designed a dress for me,” she laughed about going glam with a baby on board. “She started about two or three months ago and that’s kind of difficult…It’s black because I figure, at eight-and-a-half months, black is better! I think it’s elegant and it’s slimming.” As far as returning to those tummy-sucking-in days, Klum says she doesn’t have any target date to have her famous body ready for bikini and lingerie shoots. “I was asked by Victoria’s Secret if it is possible, if I’m going to make it to their show,” she said. “You never know how you are afterwards, so you kind of have to play it by ear and see what happens. So far – knock on wood – everything was always great. I felt great afterwards and I loved every minute of it, even the sleepless nights of getting up every two hours. But let’s see what happens. You can’t put all that pressure on you.” Check back on Sunday night for all of our live Emmy Awards coverage! –Scott Huver

I love love love my baby too, and find parenthood the most fulfilling thing, but c’mon – I loved getting up every two hours? I loved the sleepless nights? Only in Hollywood.

Wow, she’s pregnant again?

Heidi is one of a kind and I just love her. She is always so happy and up. She does not seem like a diva at all. I know what she means about loving every minute of her pregnancy before and after. I loved every bit of mine even getting up at night. They are memories that are different for each child and are gone so fast.

I’m happy for her. She has gorgeous babies. I just hope that she does’nt let her little girls hair grow “crazy” like her boys. I don’t want to sound mean, but I hope she does “something” with her new daughters hair, it’s going to be curly like her brothers.

She is really vain to use the term of a dress being ‘slimming’. She is pregnant, for G*d’s sake. And to have to ‘hold her breath’ usually. I am glad I am not before the public’s eye. As for waking up every two hours, I will give her credit for that. I remember those days well.. At least it is her and no not a nanny taking care of the child..

Ok yeah she looks good, but anyone in Hollywood does. As far as having more kids one she could afford it and two she probably has alot of help. In the real world most of us don’t have any. That is why I stopped at two children was enough for me.
