Court Approves Heidi Klum's Name Change

On Friday, a Los Angeles court commissioner approved Heidi Klum’s name change, according to reports.

The supermodel will now be known – legally at least – as Heidi Samuel, the same last name as her husband, British superstar singer, Seal.

According to People, a rep for the runway beauty did not comment when asked if she was changing her name professionally.

Heidi filed the petition to change her name last month.

Heidi gave birth to the couple’s second daughter – Lola Sulola Samuel – last month.

The couple has two sons together, Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, 3, and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel, 2.

Seal is also the adoptive father of Helene “Leni” Klum, whose father is Heidi’s ex, Flavio Briatore. Flavio and Heidi split in December 2003.
