Heidi Klum, the first German model to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel, is currently a judge on America’s Got Talent and co-host of the Amazon show Making the Cut. She is also married to musician Tom Kaulitz. Heidi, 48, was introduced to Tom, 31, guitarist of the German rock band Tokio Hotel, while hosting Germany’s Next Top Model.
The two instantly connected after learning that they shared a lot in common. Both Tom and Heidi had been married before. They also were both born in Germany.
“He’s German, so it’s been fun and easy for Heidi,” the source told Us Weekly. ‘Tom is a breath of fresh air for her. They fell into an easy rhythm really quickly.”
The couple reportedly “made their relationship official” around early 2018.
After about eight months of dating, Heidi announced on social media that she and Tom were engaged. Tom sought a special blessing from Heidi’s kids — daughters Leni, 17, and Lou, 11, and sons Henry, 15 and Johan, 14 (Leni’s biological father is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore; Seal adopted her. Henry, Johan, and Lou are her kids with Seal).
On February 22, 2019, Heidi and Tom got married. Vogue reported that the couple organized a second ceremony on the Christina O, a yacht belonging to Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s second husband, Aristotle Onassis, in Capri, Italy, on August 3, 2019.
Throughout their relationship, Heidi has had to field questions about their 17-year age gap. But as Heidi has made perfectly clear, outsider opinions don’t matter to her or Tom, as they’re happy to be together no matter what anyone else says.
“Lots of people are questioning that and asking about it,” Heidi told InStyle back in 2018. “That’s really the only time when age seems to be shoved in my face, and I have to give an answer for it.”
She continued: “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.”
