My, how they’ve grown! Heidi Klum and Seal’s son Henry, 18, is looking at colleges with his proud mama by his side. Klum, a judge on America’s Got Talent, posted a joyful Instagram video with Henry in the background, cheerily explaining: “What do I do on my days off? We tour colleges!”

The German-American supermodel seems to have bounced back quickly from a bout of food poisoning. The day after January 15th’s Primetime Emmy Awards, Klum told her followers that she had been sick in bed all day.

Klum has always enjoyed celebrating her kids on social media. When Henry turned 18 this past fall, Klum took to Instagram, posting a throwback shot from his baby years.  "Look how small you were and now you are 6“3 WOW,” she wrote. “I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART.”

Klum was wed to Henry’s father, Seal, for seven years. The couple divorced in 2014 and share three biological children together, although Klum has long maintained Seal is a father figure to her 19-year-old daughter, Leni, from a prior relationship. They are also parents to son Johan, 17, and daughter Lou, 14.

Despite the split, it appears Seal and Leni are still close. On Leni's last birthday, he posted a photo of them together, writing: "In NY with the young woman who changed my life for the better 19 yrs ago. Thank you Leni for making me a better person.”

In 2019, Klum remarried guitarist Tom Kaulitz, who seems to adore being a stepdad. This past Thanksgiving, she shared a rare photo of herself, Kaulitz, and all four children snuggled together on the couch. She captioned it simply: “Love.”
