The estranged wife of Seal says of her new man, 'He's a great man and recently we just got to know each other from a completely different side.'
Heidi Klum confirms she's in a relationship with her bodyguard Martin Kirsten, but insists the romance didn't happen when she was with Seal. "It just started," she explains to Katie Couric when sitting down for an interview on her new talk show.
"I trust him with my children's life," the mother of four says of her new beau who has worked for her family for four years. "He's a great man and recently we just got to know each other from a completely different side."
Talking about her divorce from Seal, Heidi admits it was "horrible." She elaborates, "It is very hard and especially, you know, being in all of the magazine and gossip pages. I mean, that is definitely very hard and hurtful and it's hard to go through a divorce."
"I'm someone who believes in a fairy tale and when I said 'I do,' I meant forever," she adds. "But I don't know, you never know what happens. Life changes."
Heidi's relationship with Martin was revealed after they're caught on camera getting cozy during a family vacation. Seal slammed her for "deciding to fornicate with the help" before they were officially divorced, but she defended herself, "He's moved on, and so have I."
