It’s official: Heidi Klum is returning to the runway just 6 weeks after giving birth to baby Lou Samuel — as host of the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show on Nov. 19. “Heidi is superwoman. She had a baby a few weeks ago and she is hosting the most high profile fashion show in the world,” Ed Razek, President and Chief Marketing Officer of VS tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Victoria’s Secret is thrilled to have her back. There is no one like her.” Klum played coy about preparing for the show, which airs Dec. 1 at 10pm on CBS, saying she planned “to take it easy and see what happens,” after delivering Lou, her daughter with Seal — and her fourth child — last month. Still, her fellow Angels aren’t surprised to see Heidi back to work. “She can do it all,” says fellow Angel (and new mom) Alessandra Ambrosio. “She’s a great mom and she’s got so much going on. She’s an inspiration.” We can’t wait to see Heidi and all of the Angels, including Marisa Miller in this year’s diamond bra, work the runway. –Charlotte Triggs

she does look great, and while I sure wouldnt go back to work if I didnt have to, her lifestyle is different than us average 9-5 ers. And I think her type of work is also very different….hosting a show if a far cry from waiting tables 5 nights a week with kids and a husband at home….Id do it to if I were her!!

Beautiful woman, great family and a great career. I think she has it all. Come on people, you don’t have to put others down in order to feel good about yourself! Go Heidi!

Kudos to Heidi… I think it is inspiring to hear a fellow mom who is able to juggle both her family and her career. I think in general, women should be supportive of other women who are doing things right and not being so critical.

Just because she’s hosting the show doesn’t in anyway mean she’s a bad mother. She’s still working and looking fabulous after four kids, why not?! Haters are jealous.

She should tell us how she does that.
Supernatural! She should share her secrets!
I am a mother, can’t imagine how is that possible!

this is very typical for Heidi. In Germany the people loved her very much, but in the last years she showed of her real face. a moneymaschine. I don´t think its something to be proud. Every women can work 6 weeks after giving birth. Why not? When your parents stay at your house, you have nanny and someone who make the laundry… for sure heidi don´t stay at the ironing board. but most important is,that many women prefer to enjoy the new baby. Heidi don´t need this money, but she can´t get engough.


Don’t be hating on Heidi-So pathetic! Yes, she’s a mom but she also is a business woman. Good Grief! » Heidi Klum bei "Victoria's Secret" - Kultshow nicht als Model auf dem Laufsteg on

You have got to be kidding me, all you jealous cows…..moooo!!!! I’ve always loved Heidi and I don’t see anything wrong with her going back to work. I went back to work when my baby was 3 WEEKS OLD so call me a bad mother…not in the least. My daughter is an amazing child. I’m sure it is not about the money for Heidi, it’s about her, about being a women and a mother and a business women too. Why are people always trying to box you in……and by gawddd who said that a women has to stand behind an ironing board…..I certainly dont!!! Well done Heidi and Congrats on your new bundle of joy!! As women of the 20th century we can do it all and still stride down the catwalk looking good. Eat your hearts out ladies!
