The World's A Stage For Project Runway Host

After a public divorce and becoming a single mother, what's left to look forward to? According to Heidi Klum, absolutely everything -- including her 40s!

Heidi Klum looking forward to her fabulous 40sIt feels like the world as you know it is over when your marriage ends. However, after filing for divorce from Seal after seven years of marriage, Heidi Klum is looking up and forward to better things.

"I feel good," said the host of Project Runway to E! News. "I'm not complaining."

The supermodel turns 39 next month, but age -- like single motherhood -- isn't something that scares her.

"I just posted on Facebook a video from when I was 18 and I won [the German televised modeling competition] Model 92," Klum said at the Mondrian Hotel while promoting Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy, a new line of shampoos, conditioners and other hair care products. "I've changed a lot. It's like, who is that person?"

In fact, Klum reflected that she is actually looking forward to her 40s, an amazing decade in which many other women truly begin to thrive.

"I think between 40 and 50, you just have to give it your all," she explained of her optimism. "You just have to do it all. You're still somewhat young."

So what about after all that? "When you turn 50, that's when we're getting a little more settled, more quiet."

Klum wasn't always this calm and positive -- back in March, she mentioned to Elle her feelings about the split. "I feel like I'm in the eye of a tornado," she said in the April issue. "It's emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness -- with you wanting it or not wanting it -- is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life."

She continued, "Sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you can catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn't expect."

It is utterly ooboxinus that Hollywood thinks a size 10 is big and I'm sorry, but I'm not buying that Heidi is that much smaller than a 10 when not preggers and I'm a fan!Anyway, it depends on the brand, period I have anywhere from size 4 to size 14 in my regular closet because I got my momma's hips and most clothes these days assume no one has a butt or hips I did wear pretty much all my regular shirts while preggers, but that's because my closet is still full of the empire waist big flowy shirts that were in' over the last 3 years or so or T shirts that were stretchy and I wore my regular dresses while pregnant, up until 8th month but pants/shorts/capris fuggedaboutit HAD to do maternity

I had a few maternity tops that were loose on my tummy, but moltsy since it was summer just bought tanks in a junior med/lg. And I went up to a junior pant size 7 but never bought maternity jeans, I just wore stuff with a stretchy waist or really low on my hips since I had long tanks to cover with. And it not only saved money but I was able to wear it postpartum and still do wear some things. Not to brag (Ive never counted myself lucky for it. Skinny doesnt mean healthy!), but I was a xs/sm before pregnancy. Wore size 1 in jeans. But Im only 5'3 and Ive been super small my whole life. What I would give for bigger breasts and fuller curves! LOL but pregnancy made me healthier and now Im in a healthy BMI range, rather than underweight and anemic Thats the important part!

I love Heidi Klum. I think she is such an inspiration. She is honest and that's something I really appreciate. Divorce is awful and she doesn't hide how terrible the period was, but it is good to see there is a light at the end of the tunnel and that she is optimistic for the future. It gives hope to others that it is possible to move forward!
