Heidi Klum has confirmed she is dating her bodyguard
The 39-year-old model - who was accused by estranged husband Seal of cheating on him with Martin Kirsten, before claiming his quotes were taken out of context - admits she is in the early stages of getting to know him, but claims she trusts him because of their four year working relationship.
Speaking on Katie Couric`s show `Katie`, she said: "I don`t even know if I could call it [a relationship], you know, it has just started. I don`t know, I don`t know where it is going to go.
"Yes, yes, I`ve known him for four years and he`s been with our family for four years. He`s cared for our entire family, mostly for our four children. He`s helped us tremendously, he`s helped our children. I trust him with my children. We just got to know each other from a completely different side. I`m trying to think of my kids right now, I`m trying to protect them from all of this. I`m taking it one day at a time."
Heidi - who raises children Leni, right, Henry, six, Johan, five and two-year-old Lou with Seal - added she does feel an extra pressure with her new man because she knows everyone is watching them, but says she never considered cheating on her husband.
She added: "I never looked at another man when I was with him. He`s moved on. When we separated, he`s moved on and so have I and it`s very hard when you start seeing somebody again and everyone is watching you. You can`t even have a real, proper chance in a way. I do want to date again, I`m turning 40 and I, I don`t know. I don`t even know where it`s going to go."
