Heidi Klum has confirmed that she is seeing her bodyguard Martin Kirsten.

However, the model-turned-TV personality denies that she had an affair with Kirsten while married to pop singer Seal.

Klum made the admission during an appearance on Katie Couric's talk show to promote her new baby line, the New York Daily News reported

"It just started," Klum reportedly said of the relationship with Kirsten.

"He's a great man and recently we just got to know each other from a completely different side," she continued, adding that she would trust Kirsten with the lives of her own children.

Last month, Seal said in a video posted on TMZ: "I would have thought Heidi would have showed a little bit more class and at least waited until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help."

His rep later clarified in a statement to Us Weekly that the singer "was not implying his wife was cheating while they were together, but he was merely pointing out that their separation and divorce were not final and they are still legally married."

Klum, meantime, told Couric that she "never looked at another man" while she and Seal were together.

The "Project Runway" host filed for divorce after seven years of marriage.

Elaborating on the romantic interest in Kirsten, Klum told Couric: "I don't even know if I can even call it [a relationship]"I don't know, it just started ... I don't know where it's going to go."
