Washington: Claudia Schiffer insists that her priorities changed when she became a mother and work is no longer the most important thing in her life.

The German supermodel has three kids with her director husband Matthew Vaughn.

“I come from a big family, and I always wanted to have kids of my own. Before I met Matthew, I worked non-stop. But once we got together, suddenly a whole new world seemed to open up. And when I had my first child, my priorities became completely different,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Stylist magazine.

“Motherhood made me feel, ‘This is what I’m all about.’ You stop worrying. Matthew and I are a team, we make all our decisions together, whether it’s about the children or the house. We’re not divided in any sense,” she said.

Once consumed by work, the 41-year-old model now insists that she can’t imagine her family living anywhere else.

“I’ve lived in Paris and New York, where I love the pace, but this has become my favourite city. It’s got everything you could want and it has a lovely villagey feel; there are parks and gardens everywhere in London.

“There is a sense of community in the neighbourhood we live in, in Notting Hill, and it’s also really easy to get to the countryside. I’ve fallen in love with it, and I’m so glad I ended up here. It’s thanks to Matthew; it’s where love brings you,” she added.
