Congratulations are in order for Heidi Klum — she’s engaged to Tom Kaulitz! The 45-year-old announced her surprise engagement to 29-year-old beau on Monday, Dec. 24 by posting a photo of her gorgeous new ring via Instagram. “I SAID YES,” Heidi captioned a candid black and white pic of herself hugging Tom as she flaunted her massive ring.
Heidi’s marriage to Tom — who is a German musician and a founding member of the band Tokio Hotel — will be her third. The supermodel was previously hitched to stylist Ric Pipino from 1997 until 2002 and to singer Seal from 2005 to 2014 and is a mom to four children, Leni, 14, Henry, 13, Johan, 12, and Lou, 9. Tom has been married once before to Ria Sommerfeld from 2015 until 2018.
This news comes just a few months after fans were speculating she and Tom were engaged after Heidi sported a massive diamond ring to the Emmys in September. “I don’t know why everyone keeps saying that. Everyone is asking me,” Heidi, 45, told People in a previous interview. “When you do what I do, you wear a lot of fashion. A lot of jewelry. I always look for something that goes with the outfit. So, I wear big rings.”
Little did she know she’d be getting engaged to him just a few short months later. And we have a feeling why she said “yes” so easily based on her past comments about him. “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,” she told People. “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.” We’re so glad you’re happy, Heidi — and we’re thrilled you’re actually engaged now! Stay tuned for wedding details…
