We all think our children are beautiful, but when it comes to describing that beauty, words are important. A lot of people think it’s pretty weird when a parent calls their son or daughter “hot” or “sexy,” especially when the kids are very young. That’s why some people were taken aback this week when supermodel Heidi Klum described her 10- and 12-year-old sons as “very sexy.”
Klum’s four kids are gorgeous, of course. Heidi Klum is one of the most successful supermodels of all time, and her ex-husband, Seal, is an insanely good-looking man. Statistically speaking, their kids were virtually guaranteed to inherit some of their parents’ looks. But “good-looking” is one thing, and calling one’s children “sexy” is another.
Heidi Klum seems to have realized that right away when she called her boys “very sexy” in a recent interview with People.
“My boys are very sexy,” Klum she told the magazine.
Then she laughed, realizing that sounded weird: “They’re very young and I probably shouldn’t say that, that they’re sexy.”
Klum said her sons are “very sexy” and have “rocking bodies.”
Klum went on to say that “there’s going to be a line around my house” and that they’d need to “fend off the ladies.” She also complimented their “rocking bodies,” even though the kids are just 10 and 12.
“My boys are all very tall, they’re very thin,” she said. “They have just rocking bodies!”
Klum’s kids are beautiful, but it sounds pretty weird for her to call them sexy like that. If a father called his 10- and 12-year-old daughters sexy and talked about their “rocking bodies” everyone would think it was creepy as heck.
If the comments on People’s Facebook page are anything to go by, a lot of People Magazine readers thought Klum’s comments were just as creepy and inappropriate.
