has revealed that her dad actually filmed her while she was giving birth.
with former partner Flavio Briatore, and also shares Henry, Johan and Lou with her ex-husband, Seal.
Appearing on the Jennifer Hudson show this week, the 49-year-old opened up about , and shed light on how close her family are.
When the host asked whether she has their births on camera, Heidi explained that her father was actually the one in charge of capturing the footage.
‘My dad actually filmed it,’ she said. ‘I know that probably sounds strange but my parents were all there when I gave birth to my kids.
‘I wanted it documented because I thought, “If they don’t want to watch it, they can always toss it, but at least they have it.”’
Jennifer then declared herself a ‘picture fanatic’ and revealed her fears for the moment her son David – who she shares with David Otunga – doesn’t want his photo taken.
Heidi revealed: ‘I have that right now. [They’re like] “Why mom? Why do you always have to take photos?” and I’m like “Because later you’re going to want to see you at that stage, and obviously, if I don’t take the photos now, you won’t see it.”’
Elsewhere in the candid chat, the Making The Cut host teased that she would be open to adding to her brood, – during a game of ‘ne’ or ‘ja’.
‘Sometimes it’s like, “ne”, “ja”, “ne”, “ja”,’ she said.
Spinning the yes / no paddle, she continued: ‘It depends what day it is. Sometimes I’m here, sometimes here.
‘I mean it’s a lot. I’ve done it four times. And I breastfed eight months each time and then I was pregnant again. Three times in a row. Again, I have an 18-year-old, 17, 16 and a 13.
‘Now I waited a long time, so maybe ja.’
Heidi found love with Tokio Hotel band member Tom in 2018, four years after her divorce from Seal was finalized.
The pair were first linked in March and went Instagram official later that same year, before getting engaged in December.
They went on to tie the knot in February, 2019, in a private ceremony.
Speaking of their relationship in 2020, she told People Magazine: ‘I’m just a much happier person. For the first time, I have a partner who I can discuss everything with. Someone who shares duties that we all have in our life.
‘I used to be on my own with everything. For the first time, I get to experience what it is actually like to have a partner.’
