Heidi Klum swears off marriage
Supermodel-turned-reality TV presenter Heidi Klum has no interest in walking down the aisle again after splitting from her singer husband Seal last year.
The German beauty, who became known for renewing her wedding vows every anniversary, separated from the Kiss From A Rose hitmaker at the start of 2012, and it appears the break-up has soured Klum's idea of marriage for the foreseeable future.
She tells Marie Claire magazine, "I don't think (I'll get married again)... I wanted to keep the memory of (her and Seal's) wedding alive every year. That's why I thought it would be fun to get married over and over. But now I don't think it's that important.
"I'm not angry about anything, but I don't think I will. Maybe if I'm with someone for 15 or 20 years, and we do it in our old age as a fun thing to do... But I don't have the urgency anymore."
Klum, who filed for divorce in April, has since moved on to romance her former bodyguard, Martin Kirsten, and the model is thankful she has been able to work together with Seal to co-parent their kids.
She adds, "Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy. We're moving on with our lives... It's not what I wanted. It's not what anyone wanted. But it's not a real problem."
The former couple reportedly reunited to spend Christmas together for the sake of their three young children. The singer also adopted Klum's eldest daughter, Leni, from a previous relationship.
