Heidi Klum Bodyguard: Model Steps Out With Children, Martin Kristen

A new happy family? Model Heidi Klum stepped out with new beau (and bodyguard) Martin Kristen Sunday with kids Leni, Lou, Henry and Johan in tow. The family were making their way to a museum when this photograph was shot.

After ex-husband Seal made vitriolic comments about her dating "the help," Klum, 39, admitted to dating Kristen, her bodyguard of more than four years.

"I’ve known him for four years and he’s been with our family for the last four years," Klum told Katie Couric in September. "He’s cared for our entire family, mostly for our four children, helped us tremendously... I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man, you know, and we just got to know each other from a completely different side."

The model and "Project Runway" host split from Seal, 49, in January 2012, after seven years of marriage. The estranged couple are both wrestling for custody over their four children, with Klum seeking primary physical custody and Seal asking for joint physical custody. Daughter Leni is from Klum's relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, but was adopted by Seal in 2009.
