Heidi Klum’s Biography (Age)

The lingerie entrepreneur was born in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany on June 1, 1973, and was raised in West Germany by parents who knew a lot about the fashion industry. Her father Gunther Klum is an executive for a cosmetics company while her mother is a professional hairdresser. The model is of German American origin.

She had her education in Cologne, the nearest city to her hometown. At age 18, while still in high school, she was advised by a friend to contest in the National Modeling award. She won the contest and was rewarded with a modeling contract worth $300,000. The victory caused her to relocate to New York City immediately after high school to be more involved in modeling. This move became the only push the fashionista needed to make it to the top.
Today, even though she had to sacrifice obtaining a degree to pursue her career, Klum is a top-grossing model who is known worldwide as a spokesmodel for many top brands, a Producer and a Project Runway host. She is also a renowned fashion designer and that single sacrifice she made in her early life has paid off massively.

Children, Husband, dating Boyfriend

Heidi Klum

Klum has walked down the aisle more than once. First was with famous celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino in 1997. Her union with Ric Papino appeared to be a match made in heaven. The two were super successful in their different fields and undeniably beautiful together. But their emotions got strained at some point and they got divorced in 2002. The following year, Klum started another love relationship with Flavio Briatore, the famous Italian managing director of Renault’s Formula One team. She revealed that she was with child and soon after that very announcement, she separated from Briatore and started dating renowned singer Seal also known as Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel. She had her child Helene (Leni) Klum in May 2004 and has revealed that Briatore is not in her child’s life. She also revealed that Seal is her father.

In 2004, the lovers decided to take some serious steps in their affair with Seal proposing to her. They got married in 2005 on a beach in Mexico. Together, they have three biological children; two sons and a daughter. This makes the blonde model mother of four adorable children. Their sons are Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel and John Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel while their daughter is Lou Sulola born in 2009. The boys were born in 2005 and 2006 respectively. Leni, Klum’s first fruit also bears Seal’s name after the musician adopted her in 2009.

While her marriage to Seal seemed utterly successful with the couple renewing their marriage vows every year, on their anniversary in the presence of close relatives and friends, it crumbled after seven years. It was Klum who initiated the divorce in 2012 but stayed lip-tight about why she was leaving the singer and songwriter. The divorce was finalized in 2014 and Heidi Klum who adopted her husband name legally changed it back from Samuel to Klum. Now, despite the emotionally-draining past, Klum has moved on for good.

The stunning model and actress has found happiness in her new younger lover Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz whom she allegedly started dating in early 2018. She made this affair known to the public on her Instagram posts and at the Cannes Film Festival. And though a lot has been made of the couple’s 16-year gap, they’re going stronger than ever.
