AceShowbiz - Heidi Klum pulled a Justin Bieber. The former supermodel surprised everyone as news broke on Thursday, July 11 that she has been legally married to her rocker fiance Tom Kaulitz for several months now.
Public records show the 46-year-old beauty and the 29-year-old musician obtained a confidential marriage certificate in California. According to TMZ which first reported the news, the pair secretly tied the knot in February. On February 22, the pair were spotted on a dinner date at Mr. Chow. It's now revealed that they were apparently celebrating their wedding which took place just a few hours earlier.
Heidi said she and Tom first met on February 22, 2018, which means they especially picked the date for their nuptials to make it even more special. They made their first public appearance as a couple in May 2018 at the Cannes amfAR Gala. Tom popped the question to Heidi in December last year and she announced it by sharing on Twitter a picture of the couple beaming while she showed her engagement ring. "I SAID YES," she captioned it.
In July last year, Heidi responded to criticisms about their 17-year age gap. "Lately, I'm being reminded more about my age by people other than myself," she told InStyle. "My boyfriend is many years younger than me, and lots of people are questioning that and asking about it. That's really the only time when age seems to be shoved in my face and I have to give an answer for it."
Hinting that their big age gap is not a problem for them, she added, "I don't really think about it that much otherwise. You have to just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think because worrying is only going to give you more wrinkles."
It's the first marriage for Tom and the third for Heidi. The former "America's Got Talent" judge married stylist Ric Pipino in 1997, but they got divorced in 2002. She went to marry singer Seal in 2005, until their divorce in 2014. They have three biological children together, sons Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel (born 2005), and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel (born 2006), and daughter Lou Sulola Samuel (born 2009). She also has a 15-year-old daughter Leni Klum from her relationship with Flavio Briatore.
