Heidi Klum: I don’t need a ring
Heidi Klum insists she doesn't need to wed to be happy.
The German supermodel has been dating the 27-year-old art dealer since February this year, following her breakup from bodyguard Martin Kristen shortly before. She's wed twice in the past, with her marriage to Seal coming to an end in 2012.
"I'm happy, even without a marriage licence," she assured German magazine Gala.
Heidi, 40, is mother to Leni, ten, from her relationship with Flavio Briatore and she also has younger children Henry, Johan and Lou with Seal.
Family is extremely important to the star, as she is so close to her own mom.
"I have a very special bond with my parents. If I had to describe it, I would say it was old fashioned," she revealed.
"When my mother comes to stay, she'll sleep in a bed with me and my daughter."
Heidi has had a busy time recently, gearing up for the final of Germany's Next Topmodel, which aired earlier this week.
Contestant Stefanie Giesinger came out on top in series nine and Heidi used Twitter to congratulate the pretty model and share a snap of the two of them together.
She also used the social networking site to post a picture of herself on the set of the show looking make-up free and fresh faced as she tucked into fruit snacks with her fellow judges.
Earlier this week Heidi was spotted enjoying some time off for Mother's Day in New York with her daughter Lou. The star was papped as she grabbed a hot drink with the cute four-year-old.
