IN 10 YEARS SHE’LL BE …

Living on a yacht in Italy with my husband [Seal]! Well, probably not–we can’t leave the kids. In 10 years we’ll be battling boyfriends and girlfriends who will come over for our approval.

OFTEN FEELS LIKE A

Tape recorder. [Leni, 6, Henri, 4, Johan, 3] look like angels, but I don’t know if they’re the most well-behaved. I’ll say, “Don’t do this, don’t do that. Don’t put that in your mouth. Stop banging!” It’s ongoing …

FAVORITE HOTEL

The Hyatt Regency in Japan. It’s fantastic. They have heated toilets, and when you push the button, it flushes up! The first time it’s a bit of a surprise.

SECRET TALENT

I’d say I’m a good cook. I have a lot of German recipes that I can make–schnitzel, meatballs and things with cabbage. I love cabbage.

FILM THAT MAKES HER CRY

The Lion King. When the father dies and all the animals come and trample him, that’s very sad. My kids now understand it too. They’ll ask, “Where’s the papa?” And I’m like, “That was the end of papa.”
