Heidi Klum is one of the most recognizable supermodels of our time, and at 44 years old, she’s still at the top of her game. In fact, the mother of four has just been announced as Maxim’s May/June cover girl, and unsurprisingly, she looks absolutely incredible.

But it’s not just Klum’s sizzling pictures that have us reeling at her Maxim cover, it’s also what she said during her interview about aging. “My nose would grow like Pinocchio’s if I said that I didn’t feel some pressure about aging, as I am constantly asked about it,” she explained.
“I’m in the public eye, and there’s more scrutiny because of that,” Klum continued. “I can look at photos of when I was 24, and of course I am going to look different now at 44 and having had four children, but, again, it’s about being comfortable with yourself and what you see in the mirror. I’m not trying to hold on to the past or searching for a fountain of youth. We are all going to age, so I’m trying to embrace that, but not without a bit of a fight.”
And when it comes to advice she would pass on to younger self, Klum has a message about enjoying the journey in life—not just the destination: “If I could go back in time, I would appreciate each moment more. When I was younger, I was always looking ahead and how to get there faster. Now I wish I had really been more present during each moment to fully enjoy and savor them.”
With a positive attitude and sky-high confidence to match, Klum is proving that her fourth decade of life is nothing short of special—certainly giving us all a good example to follow.
