Heidi is excited about the new arrival, and admits become a mother again has encouraged her to think about her parenting responsibilities.

She is determined all her children will get good educations, and she has high hopes for their future careers.

Heidi added to FOX News: "You want them to stay in school and you want them to have a vision of what they want to be and give them ideas and encourage them. I definitely want to get involved and do that, think about job ideas.

"Nowadays children look at everyone in the magazines and they want to be a basketball star or on a television show, but there are only so many people who can do those things. But you still should aim or dream for these things."

Heidi also lashed out at parents who blame the fashion industry for causing young girls to develop eating disorders.

She argued: "You can't blame other people. It's your own choice and if you have children, it is up to the parent to educate your children so they are healthy and they don't go into a direction of anorexia or obesity."
