Heidi Klum is opening up about family life and how vacations are different now now that her brood is getting older.

The supermodel and television reality show host told ABC News this week that her kids with ex-husband Seal — Leni, 9, Henry, 8, Johan, 7, Lou, 4 — are a lot more self-sufficient now that they're growing up.

"[Vacations are] easier now," Klum, 40, said. "It's a different phase. They can all swim. Obviously, you still have to watch them. But they're on a different level now. It's a new chapter."

Klum told ABC News that when she's not working on various projects, like hosting "Project Runway" or pitching for Dr. Scholl's, she enjoys staying at home with her family and watching TV or movies on her Apple TV. The model said she's also teaching her kids to cook, especially German meals she learned from her mother.

Klum has rarely been out of the spotlight in recent months, with E! News running pictures of her vacation in the Caribbean this week.

"[Klum] couldn't help but show off that fit figure of hers — seriously, look at those abs — while on vacation with family in the Bahamas," the celebrity gossip site reported. "Spotted drying herself off by the pool with a big yellow towel, Klum was wearing a skimpy black triangle-top bikini with gold sequin accents, plus a big straw hat and shades to shield her face and décolletage from the sun."

Though she recently took a few days off, Klum has been hard at work on her collaboration with Dr. Scholl's DreamWalk line of shoe inserts. She's a perfect spokesperson, she said, because she constantly wears high heels and "my feet always hurt."

Klum shared a photo on the set of her latest Dr. Scholl's commercial last week via Twitter.

Klum made sure to specify, though, that her work with Dr. Scholl's does not mean she's giving up her heels.

"If I wear flats, people usually come up to me and say, 'You're so much shorter than I thought,'" she told ABC News. "Once I heard that, I thought, 'I have to wear heels all the time, otherwise I'll disappoint people.'"
