recently discovered when she brought home two German shepherd puppies
that having dogs is a little like having kids. Luckily, her four children are around to help raise the new babies.
"We just got two dogs and [our kids] are really into their dogs," Klum told reporters at the amfAR Inspiration Gala
in New York on Tuesday night.
And you might say that the youngest Samuel baby is the leader of the pack.
"They love teaching them how to sit, especially Lou!" Klum said. "At 1½, she says 'Freddy, sit! Freddy, sit, sit, sit!'"
And when she's not disciplining Freddy, little Lou is a bit more subdued.
"She likes to dance, but she's also very observant," Klum said. "She's very quiet – she's not loud at the dinner table. The other kids are very loud and she kind of sits there and watches everyone. She's kind of sponging everything up, and I know she's memorizing everything. It's going to come out soon."
As for the rest of her brood? "Swimming! They love swimming."
