Heidi Klum might be sporting a flashy new ring from her boyfriend, Martin Kristen, but that doesn’t mean she’s planning a trip down the aisle in the near future.
Klum, 39, and Kristen debuted matching rings from Tiffany & Co. last week, but in a Wednesday interview with omg! Insider, the model said it was nothing more than a present, and a beautiful one at that.
“This is a ring I got from my boyfriend,” Klum told correspondent Kevin Frazier. “It’s a present. There’s no engagement. I did get a present from my boyfriend. He did give me a ring and he has the same. I am not engaged.”
“I am not planning to get married anytime soon,” Klum added. “It’s just a beautiful piece of jewelry. Just something nice.”
The “Project Runway” host, who separated from ex-husband Seal in 2012 after seven years of marriage, was first seen wearing the ring in April while she was promoting Clean Hair & Scalp Therapy, according to the Daily Mail. And on April 20, the couple were seen wearing matching rings during a stroll in West Hollywood.
Klum said of her relationship to Martin, “I am happy. It is always hard to find the right partner, and you just never know in the beginning.” But despite the pair’s blossoming romance, Klum doesn’t seem eager to tie the knot again. Shortly after her divorce from the “Kiss From a Rose” singer, Klum announced that she would “never get married again.”
Klum spilled the beans in an interview with Marie Claire, explaining that after her marriage and four children she no longer felt the desire.
“I don’t think so,” Klum said. “No. No. I wanted to keep the memory of our 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.”
But despite her hesitation to get married again, Klum said that all things considered, her family has bounced back from the divorce. “People say, ‘Oh, God, how devastating to go through a divorce.’ Did I wish for this to happen to my family? No. But everyone is healthy; we’re moving on with our lives,” she said. “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.”
