Who is Tom Kaulitz, Heidi Klum's boyfriend? We've got all the juicy deets! This weekend, Heidi Klum arrived in Mexico for vacation — and she wasn't alone! In her company was a very attractive younger man — he's 28 to Heidi's 44! — named Tom Kaulitz. 

But first a brief Heidi relationship history: Heidi Klum was previously married to singer Seal with whom she shares four children. Following her divorce from Seal, Heidi dated art curator Vito Schnabel, but the couple called it quits in September. Fast-forward to present day. Rumor has it that Tom Kaulitz and Heidi Klum began seeing each other seriously in mid-march and the May to December relationship steamed up this weekend when topless Heidi Klum photos were published. In the photos, she's seen wearing only bikini bottoms and cuddling up to Kaulitz, her Mexican vacation companion. So who is the lucky gentleman? Let's investigate and find out how legit this Heidi Tom relationship really is...

1. He's a musician. 

Heidi seems to love musicians, doesn't she? Tom Kaulitz is a German guitarist, songwriter, producer, and member of the band Tokio Hotel. Not too shabby! 

2. He has an identical twin.

Tom's twin brother is name Bill Kaulitz, who's also the lead singer of their band Tokio Hotel. Tom was born 10 minutes before his oldest brother, Bill, which makes him the older twin. The family that plays together, stays together....?

5. He claimed his brother is his soulmate. 

He spoke about the twin bond he shares with brother, Bill, in a 2007 interview:

"We are very different yet alike. We don't look like twins. But we are soul mates. When I look at Bill I know instantly what he thinks. I can feel it when he has a problem, even if he is not with me. I cannot imagine that I could ever trust a girl like I trust Bill." 

Wonder if Heidi passes the twin brother test?

6. His description of his 'perfect woman' suspiciously sounds a lot like Heidi. 

On his dream girl, Kaulitz described: "She should be extremely spontaneous and funny. I should be able to have an exciting time with her and well, she should have a nice outfit, nice clothes. One should simply be on the same wavelength and of course I should like her outer appearance." 

Sounds a lot like Heidi, no?
