Heidi Klum: My Racy Photographer Is My Mom!

Heidi Klum is far from shy – as evident by her recent online bottom-barring photos – and it turns out the person snapping those shots is someone who has seen the supermodel’s backside since its debut!

Access Hollywood caught up with the “America’s Got Talent” judge in New York City on Tuesday, where she dished on the identity of her shutterbug for recent shots, like her July 4th trip to the Bahamas.

“You will be surprised when you hear that my mom takes most of the photos,” she told Access. “Yeah, my mom and dad. They were on holiday. Yes, so my mom can take some good photos.”

The German model and “Project Runway” host explained that her heritage lends itself to being a little freer when it comes to nudity.

“And I’m European. I don’t like wearing tops,” Heidi told Access. “And I don’t like tan lines.”
