Heidi Klum has finally gone public with her new relationship and just as it was suspected, she’s dating bodyguard Martin Kirstin. Just last week, Heidi’s ex-husband Seal had called her out for “fornicating with the help” while they were still married, which she denied. She’s still denying that her relationship with Martin began before she split from Seal, but she IS gushing about her new romance.
Yesterday on Katie, Heidi revealed that she and Martin are officially “seeing” each other. “I don’t know if I can call it [a relationship]. It just started. I don’t know,” she states. “I’ve known him for years, he’s been with our family for the last four years. He’s cared for our entire family, mostly for our children. He’s helped tremendously.”
“I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man . . . and we just got to know each other from a completely different side,” Heidi added. After her divorce from Seal, Heidi reportedly had trouble finding people she could trust, but with Martin, things were easy and comfortable and their friendship quickly developed into a romance.
“They’ve always been close,” a pal recently told Us Weekly of Heidi and Martin. ”This summer the relationship developed into something more.” In fact, Heidi and her new flame even vacationed together in Sardinia with Heidi’s parents and children.
“It may be a rebound,” another source says. “Still, this is someone she is comfortable with.” Plus, the kids reportedly love him.
