The 23-year-old model - who broke up with the 37-year-old 'Inception' actor earlier this month after 10 months together amid reports he didn't want to settle down and they struggled to see each other because of their busy schedules - is also happy she can relax her diet during the US holiday on Thursday (22.11.12) now that the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is over.
She told Modelina: ''I'm going to be with my family, in Chicago. We always go to my aunt's house. She's like the Martha Stewart of the family. She can cook anything and she has the most beautiful sons. One of her sons, Jordan Stein, is actually in Afghanistan and I send him all my love. They just have a beautiful family and we all just get together and its just very warm and cozy.
''I have the most amazing family: my sister Megan, my brother jeff and my parents who are here to support me.''
The stunning model previously insisted she is doing fine after their break-up.
She said: ''I'm having the best time right now. I couldn't feel more beautiful with all my friends. It's wonderful.''
Erin's best friend Lily Aldridge, 26, also confirmed she is doing fine and thinks it won't be long before she is dating someone else.
She said: ''I don't think Erin's gonna have any problems getting a man. I'm pretty sure there's a line around New York City waiting for her. Every guy I know is like, 'Please introduce me to Erin!'''
Leonardo, who recently admitted he hasn't met the love of his life yet, has wasted no time since the split and was spotted flirting with a string of models at a number of parties in New York.
