Klum's kids love her boyfriend

London, Nov 9 (IANS) Model Heidi Klum says her boyfriend, bodyguard Martin Kirsten, is so caring that her children love his company.

The 39-year-old, who split from husband Seal earlier this year, reveals that Kirsten takes "wonderful care" of her children - Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 5, and two-year-old Lou.

"They like him very much. This is also 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," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Klum as saying.

She also admits she doesn't go public with their relationship so often because her beau prefers to keep a low profile.

"Yes! I'm in love! Martin is not hiding. He's just not the sort of guy looking for the spotlight. He prefers to stay in the background," she added.
