The pregnant supermodel is thrilled about her pregnancy.

We told you last week that she was preggers. Now this week's cover of Us Weekly officially announces the couple's next bundle, due this fall. Klum and Seal's self-described "pack" includes Leni, 5, Henry, 3, and Johan, 2.

"When Johan was born, I still didn't feel like I was done," Klum said. "When we looked around the table, it was like one person was missing. So we've been, you know, having fun as a couple."

Seal announced the pregnancy during a performance at NYC's Radio City Music Hall, which was a surprise for Klum. She said she wasn't going to keep it a secret, especially with the new season of "Project Runway" airing this summer, where Klum is both the beloved host and an executive producer. She's also driving her jewelry company and skin care line.

Superbusy, supermodel, and supermom?

"It's definitely not easy," Klum told Us Weekly. "You can only have so many hands! But for me, family is life."

Something about Heidi Klum is undeniably likeable, which is not altogether typical for successful supermodels -- they usually have to prove themselves to be more than a pretty face. Tyra Banks comes to mind.

But Klum's presence on "Runway" is one reason why the show is such a juggernaut. She's genuine, she's a go-getter, she's positive. And, at 35, she's still rocking the Victoria's Secret runway, which once led cohost and venerable nice guy Tim Gunn to ask Klum, all in good humor: "Do you bathe in blood?"

Klum, who credits her gorgeous 5'9" body to exercise and diet, admits that 12 years ago her German diet was loaded with cream and fried food. Now, it's healthy, and getting to the gym after this next (and, she says, last) baby is the only part of pregnancy that she doesn't enjoy.

As for the children, they're very excited. At least, Leni is, because she can understand what it means to have another baby come home. And she wants a baby sister.

"We'd be happy with either, but it would be a lie if I said we all weren't hoping for a little girl -- especially Leni, because she would love to have a little sister," Klum told Us Weekly. "[Leni] will say 'I hope it's a girl so she can be in my room, and I'm going to help you and I'm going to change the diapers and I'm going to be a really good sister.'"

Klum and Seal keep their lives together and keep the children happy with the help of two nannies. Klum swears by Crayola Color Wonder activity books, toys for traveling on planes, and Kaleidoscope television, because "TV can be violent," she told Us Weekly. "We haven't started with Nintendo games or anything. We're trying to get them to be creative, like paint and play games."

Klum says she and Seal couldn't be more happy about how their family is growing, and she doesn't have any reservations about balancing her career. "For me, my No. 1 priority in life was to always have a family," she told Us Weekly. "If my career ended tomorrow, I can still be a good mom and teach them what I know and have them grow up to be good children."
