Heidi Klum responded on Instagram  to comments from haters who criticize her for the 17-year age difference with her husband, musician Tom Kaulitz. Heidi Klum, 50, and Tom Kaulitz, 33, recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary.

On Instagram, Heidi Klum invited followers to ask her questions. One fan wrote to the supermodel: "Don't you think you're good enough for Tom as a mother, or does age really matter?"

“Honestly, I only feel it when they point it out to me,” Heidi Klum replied.

The model has previously commented on this issue. In 2018, when her engagement to Kaulitz became known, she stated: "My boyfriend is much younger than me, a lot of people think it's weird and they ask me about it all the time." According to the supermodel, this is the only situation when she feels that she is being reproached for her age and she needs to respond to this. Heidi added that she usually does not think about this topic. “You should just live a happy life without worrying too much about what people think, because worrying will only give you more wrinkles,” the supermodel said at the time.

Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz dated for about five years, after which they announced their engagement in 2018. A year later, they got married. This is not the supermodel's first marriage. From 1997 to 2002, Heidi was married to stylist Rick Pipino. She also has a daughter, Leni, from her relationship with millionaire Flavio Briatore. From 2005 to 2012, she was married to singer Seal, with whom she has three children: sons Günther and Johan and daughter Lou.

Stars are often criticized for their age difference. Olivia Wilde's relationship with Harry Styles, who is 10 years younger than her, caused a public outcry earlier . Many also condemn the 65-year-old Madonna, who often dates young men. So, the last boyfriend of the singer, 29-year-old Josh Popper, is 36 years younger than her.
