The “Project Runway” star split from her husband Seal earlier this year and she was recently photographed on vacation with her bodyguard, prompting Seal to bash her for “fornicating with the help”.
Heidi met up with Seal last weekend to talk things out for the sake of their children.
During her interview with Katie Couric on Wednesday, Heidi confirmed she is dating Martin Kristen but is taking things slow.
Klum told Couric, “I don’t even know if I can call it that… It just started. I don’t know where it’s gonna go…”
The supermodel adds, “I’ve known him for four years… He’s cared for our entire family, mostly for all four children, helped us tremendously… I trust him… I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man, we just got to know each other from a completely different side.”
Heidi Klum admits being hesitant to move too fast because she doesn’t want her children to get hurt again if things don’t work out.
She says, “I’m trying to think of my kids right now. I don’t want them to have to go through all that (another split). I’m trying to protect them from all of this. They’re very young – my oldest is eight, my youngest is turning three and I’m thinking about that. I want to be a good mum for them and I’m taking it one day at a time.”
