AGT’s Heidi Klum’s intricate dating history from Seal to Tom Kaulitz

Heidi Klum has always been a figure of fascination, not just for her illustrious career in modeling and television but also for her intricate dating history. The 50-year-old supermodel and “America’s Got Talent” judge has been married three times and has had several high-profile relationships. “I love being in love,” Heidi once told Closer in 2017. “Like when you have butterflies in your stomach and when you feel great.”

Heidi’s first marriage was to hairstylist Ric Pipino in 1997 when she was just 24 years old. The couple tied the knot just as Heidi was on the brink of major fame. Two years into their marriage, Heidi skyrocketed to fame by wearing the $10 million “millennium bra” at the 1999 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. However, the couple divorced in 2002.

As her marriage to Ric was ending, Heidi began a whirlwind romance with billionaire Italian Formula 1 racing chief Flavio Briatore. Flavio, fresh from a five-year relationship with supermodel Naomi Campbell, captured Heidi’s heart despite a significant age difference. The couple went public in March 2003, gracing numerous red carpets together. By autumn of that year, Heidi became pregnant, but the couple split while she was expecting. She gave birth to daughter Helene “Leni” Boshoven Samuel on May 4, 2004, who was later adopted by Heidi’s next love, Seal.

Heidi and singer Seal met at the November 2003 GQ Awards in London, early in her pregnancy with Leni. A chance encounter in a New York hotel lobby months later led to a deep romance. Seal was present for Leni’s birth in New York City and adopted her as his own daughter. The couple married on a Mexican beach on May 10, 2005. They had three biological children together: sons Henry (born September 2005) and Johan (born November 2006), and daughter Lou (born October 2009).

Heidi and Seal were one of Hollywood’s most celebrated couples, known for their public displays of affection and annual vow renewal ceremonies on their wedding anniversary. However, red flags appeared when Heidi attended the 2012 Golden Globe Awards solo. On January 22, 2012, the couple announced their separation, stating, “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.” They finalized their divorce in 2014.

Following her divorce, Heidi found love with New York art dealer Vito Schnabel in 2014. Despite their 13-year age difference, the couple displayed affection everywhere they went, from romantic vacations to her kids’ soccer games. “It’s not about age,” Heidi told Closer in 2017. “We have an amazing connection, we have fun together, and we love each other. It doesn’t matter what people say — as long as you know when you close your door in your own home [that] you have an amazing time together.” Ultimately, distance strained their romance. Heidi remained based in Los Angeles for her children and work commitments, while Vito’s art business kept him in New York. The couple split in September 2017 after three years together.

Heidi found love again within a year of her split from Vito. In 2018, she began dating Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz, 17 years her junior. The couple made their red carpet debut at the Cannes amfAR gala in May 2018, showing off their love with kisses and cuddles. “He is the kindest, sweetest, most caring, loving person. I feel so lucky. I don’t know the last time I was this happy in my life,” Heidi gushed to People in September 2018. “He is absolutely wonderful. Maybe it is because he is German, and we understand each other in a different way. But so far so good.”

By the end of 2018, the couple were engaged. Heidi shared an Instagram photo of the pair with her new ring, announcing, “I SAID YES.” They secretly wed in February 2019 in California and later celebrated with a lavish ceremony on August 3 aboard a yacht off the coast of Capri, Italy, surrounded by friends and family. The happy couple, still going strong, attended the 2024 Grammys together in stunning outfits.

Heidi Klum hopes the third time will be the charm. The supermodel and “America’s Got Talent” judge, 45, is engaged to Tom Kaulitz, a 29-year-old guitarist for the band Tokio Hotel. Klum announced the news Monday with a photo on Instagram. “I SAID YES ❤️,” she wrote in the photo, which features a close-up of her engagement ring. A rep for Klum also confirmed the news to TODAY.

Klum has been married twice before. In 1997, she and Ric Pipino tied the knot, but that union ended in 2002. From 2005 to 2014, she was famously wed to Seal, with whom she has three children — sons Johan, 12, and Henry, 13, and daughter Lou, 9. She also has a fourth child, 14-year-old daughter Leni, from a previous relationship, although Seal officially adopted her while he was still married to Klum.

Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz attended the Unicef Summer Gala Presented by Luisaviaroma cocktail party at Villa Violina on August 10, 2018 in Porto Cervo, Italy. Klum and Kaulitz first went public with their relationship in May of this year. 2018 has turned out to be a year of change for Klum. In September, she announced that she, along with Tim Gunn, was leaving “Project Runway” after 16 seasons in order to focus on creating a new series for Amazon.

Some things, though, didn’t change this year. Klum continued to make a name for herself with her intricate and fantastic Halloween costumes when she wowed all of us by dressing up as Princess Fiona from “Shrek.”
