Karlie Kloss calls having a child ‘the greatest joy that I never knew’

She welcomed her son, a baby boy named Levi, with her husband Joshua Kushner last year.

And Karlie Kloss gushed about the ‘profound experience’ of having a child during an appearance on Today.

‘Just turned one!’ the model, 29, said of her baby boy on Wednesday. ‘I know, it’s wild. It’s the greatest joy that I never knew. It’s the best.’

‘Did you know the moment Levi was placed in your arms or did it take a minute to fall in love? What was it like for you?’ Hoda Kotb asked her.

Karlie said she immediately identified with every parent out there after giving birth to her child.

‘The moment he was placed on my arms — I literally cry at commercials now, so I might cry right now — I just had this moment of, “Now, every woman who has a child, every parent, goes through this.” And it’s just the most profound experience that I had no idea [about] until having a kid,’ she said.

Now Karlie’s life and priorities have changed since becoming a mother.

‘Everything changes,’ she said. ‘I think the last few years have changed us as well but becoming a mom? I have become, first of all, so much more efficient with my time. I’m actually on time everywhere now.

‘And I’m always a multitasker, you know me, I’m doing a thousand things. But I think priorities just changed,’ she said.

She also discussed her coding camp for girls, Koding With Klossy.

‘I grew up in a house of all girls and I have parents who helped us realize we can do anything that we set our mind to despite our gender or anything,’ she said of what compelled her to begin coding.

‘And I just was so infuriated by the fact that there weren’t women in these industries at leadership levels, or at even equal representation,’ she told Hoda. ‘And that’s what we really try and do, is create a space that is inclusive, and creative, and fun to learn how to code. And it’s all for free.’

Meanwhile, Karlie was seen in New York rocking two head-turning looks – a neon green suit and pink Michael Kors look which showcased her legs.

Karlie made her way around the Big Apple on crutches, and she addressed her injury during her appearance on Today.

‘I’m a bit of a klutz generally, so it’s kind of a miracle this hasn’t happened sooner with these giraffe legs and knobby knees. I’m okay, I’m rocking the sneaker,’ she said.

Karlie shares her son with her husband, businessman and investor Joshua whom she has been in a relationship with since 2012.

Karlie reportedly announced that her son was called Levi Joseph after a yeshiva (an Orthodox Jewish seminary or college) in Israel accidentally leaked the name and sex.

Yeshiva Reishit in Bet Shemesh published the name while congratulating the parents in the ‘Mazel Tov’ portion of their email newsletter, Page Six reported.

Joshua, whose brother and sister-in-law are Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, is said in the email to have gone to the yeshiva in 2003.

Karlie has publicly expressed her political disagreements with her in-laws on multiple occasions.

A couple of months after the baby was born Karlie told Paper that ‘everything in my life has changed’ since she became a mother.

‘My whole world really revolves around my son now, and it’s so cliche, but it’s so true. I never knew I could feel such a deep love and adoration for anything.

‘It’s so inspiring, but also humbling. I have so much respect for every woman on this planet. It’s truly the most rewarding, but also challenging, job. I’m enjoying every second of it.’
