"Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No," Heidi Klum told Marie Claire about her divorce from Seal. "But everyone is healthy. We're moving on with our lives. If someone got [very sick] — god forbid — that would be a real problem. It's not what I wanted. It's not what anyone wanted. But it's not a real problem."
Klum, who filed for divorce last April after seven years with Seal, is now dating her bodyguard Martin Kirsten — who is close to her age. At 39, Klum has no intentions of becoming a "cougar."
"I can understand why a woman finds a young man attractive, because the truth is that when men get older, their shape changes," Klum said. "Younger men train more, and when the clothes come off, it is nice to look at a sexy, ripped body. But I am realistic. I'm turning 40 next year. I don't think I could deal with waking up next to a 25-year-old."
So, does her realistic view include another marraige in the future? Not so fast.
"I don't think [I'll get married again]," she said. "I wanted to keep the memory of [mine 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."
It sounds like Klum is a woman who knows what she wants.
