London: Former supermodel Claudia Schiffer says her priorities changed when she became a mother and work is no longer the most important thing in her life.

The 41-year-old German beauty has three kids, Caspar, nine, Clementine, seven, and 20-month-old Cosima, with her director husband Matthew Vaughn and she said that until she
had her own family her life was consumed by work, reported a magazine.

"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. 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," Schiffer said.

The catwalk queen lives in Notting Hill in London with her family and says 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.
