From supermodel to supermom... Heidi Klum is a new mom tonight- after giving birth to her first child, a girl in New York.
The baby weighed just over eight pounds.
The 30 year old Klum has appeared in Victoria's secret shows and in Sport Illustrated Swimsuit model.
The baby's father is Flavio Briatore- the head of Renaults (Re-Knows) formula one racing team.
