German supermodel Heidi Klum was recently spotted on a beach in Tulum, Mexico while vacationing with her latest boyfriend, 27-year-old Vito Schnabel. Klum, 40, has been dating Schnabel, a New York art dealer, since February, and took a topless dip while in the Caribbean.
Klum, a mother of four, was also seen last month with Schnabel in Paris, not long after splitting from her bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kirsten in January. Kirsten had been the rebound for Klum’s ex-husband of seven years, the pop-singer Seal.
Schnabel, son of film director Julian Schnabel, appears to enjoy the company of older women, and has been previously linked to cougars that include Demi Moore and Elle Macpherson.

Aside from her work as a model, Klum has seen gigs as a fashion designer and a television host, producer and actress. She’s well-known as a former member of the judges’ panel and as an executive producer on Lifetime’s successful Project Runway. Klum first achieved fame after being featured in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and became the first German model to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
In 2011, Forbes reported that Klum earned roughly $20 million, making her the second highest-paid model, behind Gisele Bundchen. As an actress, Klum played small roles in films including Ella Enchanted, The Devil Wears Prada and Perfect Stranger. Klum has also made appearances on the television shows Sex and the City, How I Met Your Mother and Parks and Recreation, and is presently a judge on the NBC reality show America’s Got Talent.
