Heidi Klum is all smiles as she spends quality time with new beau, Martin Kristen

Supermodel Heidi Klum returned home to Los Angeles two days after hosting the MTV EMA’s in Germany and it must have been exhausting as the model put in 6 costume changes and added a Gangnam Style dance with rapper PSY to make the Awards ceremony a rousing success.

Now, it was time for some well-deserved downtime and quality time with current beau, Martin Kristen. The couple were seen enjoying the morning together dressed down in workout gear as they put in an hour long workout session at the local gym. Later Heidi and Martin were seen heading home talking animatedly and it was clear that the former Victoria’s Secret model had eyes only for the burly and good-looking Martin. Has she moved on after the painful breakup with estranged husband Seal earlier this year?

“Ja! Ich bin verliebt!” was what Heidi told German magazine Bunte during a recent interview and with those words, “Yes, I am in love!” she sealed her relationship with new beau, Martin Kristen. The German-born model and mother-of-four revealed that her feelings for Martin were based on the love her four children have for him. “They like him very much. That’s one of the reasons I like him so much. He’s been helping me for four years now. And takes wonderful care of the kids. He plays with them, he protects them. I trust him.” Heidi who split from singer Seal in January and who was first linked with Martin romantically in August seems to have found a new love. But she did say that no matter what she does, she is in the public eye and, “There will always be people who will criticize whoever I live with, what kind of clothes I wear or what hairstyle I have. At the end of the day, you have to do what makes you happy. That’s the rule I live by.”

A good rule to live by, celebrity or otherwise. Heidi is looking happier these days. Is the lovelight back in her eyes? Only time will tell…..
