DSDS-Star Alexander Klaws (37) is dad with skin and hair. With his wife Nadja (35) he has the sons Lenny (3) and Flynn, who was born in March of this year. He spoke to BUNTE about the second birth and about TV entertainers Thomas Gottschalk (70), with whom he has already worked several times, as most recently in Gottschalk’s program “2020 – Gottschalk catches up”.
BUNTE: How are you celebrating Christmas this year?
Alexander Klaws: This year we are celebrating Christmas for the first time in our house in Hamburg, where we have been living for three years. Our best present came in February. Our son Flynn saw the light of day. A father could hardly be more proud than me. I’m so grateful to have two healthy children.

Were you present at the birth?
Flynn couldn’t wait. When the contractions started, I was still rehearsing for “The Passion” in Bochum at 3 am. I just missed his birth by a few hours. My sister was by my wife’s side. I could still be there and talk to Nadja as long as possible via cell phone video. That hurts at first. It was a shame for both of us. But everything is good for something. There’s no point in getting upset about it afterwards. It’s crazy, of course, that the trigger, read “The Passion”, was canceled due to Corona. That is doubly bitter.

Do you have Christmas rituals?
Otherwise we always went to see my family in Münster or Nadjas in Switzerland. With two children we want to downshift and not spend the time on the highway. This year we decorated everything earlier than ever. I’ve never gotten into Christmas fever this early. My parents always had raclette on Christmas Eve. We will continue this tradition. A big turkey is served on Christmas Day. We bought a huge roasting pan that the bird fits into. We will celebrate on a small scale. The four of us – and if the situation allows – my parents will join us too.
How was the collaboration with Gottschalk?
He’s the hero of my childhood. I still see myself as a toddler “Wetten, dass …?” looked with my parents. Working with him now feels a bit surreal.
This hairstyle makes Gottschalk look years younger and Klaws looks different too. And there is a reason, as you can see in the following video.
