After her 5-year-old daughter Leni lost her first tooth, supermodel mum Heidi Klum took on the role of the Tooth Fairy – but was at a loss as to the going price for the milk teeth!
The model, TV host, fashion designer and mum-of-four revealed in an interview on the Jay Leno Show that she was excited to play the part, however, she didn’t quite realise what she had gotten herself into! “I didn’t know because I didn’t have a tooth fairy and I wasn’t going to call anyone and say, ‘How much do you put under the pillow?’” she admitted.
So the model and her musician hubby Seal took matters into their own hands: “We put $20 bills. I just heard that was a lot. What am I doing? I don’t know!” However, the generous handout was for a reason; Heidi believes that Leni wouldn’t have been impressed with anything less. “She find pennies and dimes on the floor all the time, so I don’t know if that could have cut it!”
Taking her role as the Tooth Fairy carefully, true to supermodel style, 36-year-old Heidi made sure she dressed the part. “As soon as she was sleeping I put this tulle thing over my head and I put this tiara on. Then we put the money under her pillow and took a photo.”
Heidi and Seal are also parents to Henry, 4, Johan, 3, and Lou Sulola, 3 months.
