The supermodel and her beau of a year and a half, Martin Kirsten, have split, People confirms. The couple, who began dating shortly after Klum ended things with ex-husband Seal in Jan. 2012, reportedly separated a few months ago. Klum, 40, and Kirsten, 41, are calling it quits on their professional relationship, as well.
Klum, who is a mother-of-four, gushed about Kirsten after they announced their romance, telling Bunte magazine, “This is one reason why I’m so fond of him … He’s been helping me for four years now, and he takes wonderful care of the kids. He plays with them, he protects them. I trust him.”
“Life is about timing. He was incredibly supportive and they were there for each other, but they’re moving on now,” another source explains. “They still have a great friendship.”
