Kids' Choice Awards: Heidi Klum says Seal is already fretting about their kids' dating lives [Video]

Former supermodel Heidi Klum has four kids, hosts a television show called "Seriously Funny Kids" and still had time to show up at the Kids' Choice Awards this weekend. 

So does that make her the Hollywood child-rearing authority?

"I don't think that I am the kid expert, no. I learned a lot about children. I wouldn't say that I know Kids Choice Awards everything, because I don't," she said on the orange carpet Saturday, before her Gucci dress got covered in green slime during the telecast. "Every age group then changes things again. I know up until a 7-year-old. But everything that comes above that, now, I don't really know how they then change, and then the boyfriends come. My husband [singer Seal] is already like, 'Oh, when the boyfriends come...'"

But she has learned a thing or two about how to interact with children, she acknowledged.

"There are no rules, really, when you're interviewing kids or when you work with kids, because you never really know what you can expect," she said. "Some are really chatty. Some ask me, like, 'Why are you asking me so many questions?' Or others are like, 'Can we do something different? This is boring. Can we dance, or can we paint?' And some just answer really nicely my questions."

As for Klum's own children? They didn't attend the Nickelodeon telecast, instead opting to hang out with their famous dad.

"They're at home with daddy, because he was away the last three weeks, so they're excited to be with their dad," she smiled.
