He added, "He's a great father, a great husband and a great host."
Klum was just as complimentary, heaping support and adoration on the AGT host. "Nick Cannon is 100 percent," the supermodel chimed in. "He's very professional, he's always there, he always has a smile on his face. He's a very hardworking person."
