Not many people can steal the hype away a very pregnant, very naked Jessica Simpson on the cover of April’s issue of Elle. But Heidi Klum may have done it, as the newly single supermodel’s alternate cover broke out over the internet today. Klum looks calm and, dare we say, contented while flashing her pearly whites on the cover of the mag. Clad in a simple black dress and tousled hair, Klum’s easygoing look belies the tumult of her very public divorce with husband of seven years, Seal. The sexy mother of four has been tight-lipped up to this point on the subject of her split, but to Elle she finally sheds some light, albeit in her own way.
“I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things,” Klum says. “Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary—especially for our children—to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.”
Klum went on to say that she felt like she was “in the eye of a tornado” in terms of dealing with the media’s relentless coverage of her separation. New York Magazine noted that the eye of a storm is actually the calmest part. On the upside though, she’s never looked better.
