Claudia Schiffer expecting her third child at 39

Supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her husband Matthew Vaughn are expecting their third child, they announced today.

The striking blonde, 39, is five-and-a-half months pregnant and will give birth in May. And she spoke of her joy as she said: 'We are delighted with the news and can't wait to add to our family.

The German star is one of the world's most successful models, having appeared on more than 500 magazine covers. Financial bible Forbes estimated her net worth at £38 million.

She already has two children, Caspar, aged six, and five-year-old Clementine.

Miss Schiffer married Vaughan, 38, in May 2002 following a romance the model called ‘love at first sight’ and the family live in West London.

She has previously talked about how motherhood changed her workaholic life, revealing: ‘I used to work every single day and travel round the world. I worked weekends, I never took one second off.

‘When I met my husband I said, "You know what, this is important. I'm not going to work weekends any more." And when I had kids, I became even more careful.

‘I love being pregnant. You can do whatever you want. You don't feel guilty, because I used to feel guilty about having a day off. And, you know, something really strange happened to me. Before my pregnancies, I was someone who had to watch their weight.'

Congratulations Claudia!
