Supermodel Cindy Crawford recently admitted that she and her husband of 25 years, Rande Gerber, have “more traditional” roles when it comes to divvying up household tasks.

“I was going to joke and say I can barely get him to pick up a wet towel, which is partly true, but I will say if something around the house needs repair — he’ll repair it if he knows how,” the 57-year-old told People about her life at home.

“You know, if the air conditioning’s not working, he deals with that,” Crawford continued. “Or if there’s a patch of grass that needs replacing. So I would say we’re pretty good at divvying up the responsibilities of life.”

The celebrity supermodel said one of her greatest strengths is “punctuality,” plus her ability to act as a household manager.

“I’m definitely more in charge of making sure there are groceries in the house and menu planning, the schedule, making appointments and that kind of stuff,” she said, noting how they divide duties similarly to “more traditional roles” they grew up with.

Crawford and Gerber, 60, have two children: Presley, 23, and Kaia, 21. She said when their kids were young, they included them at the dinner table, never forcing them to stay at a separate kids’ table. She credits this for helping them mature.

“I think because of that, they’re very comfortable in most life situations,” she told the publication. 

She previously made headlines for discussing getting older and accepting the changes to her appearance. Crawford took issue with being called “ageless.”


“I know all the ways that I’ve aged,” Crawford told Haute Living in November. “My face has gotten much thinner; my mouth isn’t as full. Being told I’m ageless isn’t right, especially because getting older is hard enough, never mind that we live in a youth-obsessed culture.”

“I’m not 25, so why should I be trying to look 25?” she added. “Why do I want someone to mistake me for a 25-year-old? I’ve had children. I have all this life experience.”

Crawford said she was happy to be looking older. “Aging is what happens if we’re lucky; it means that I’m alive.”
