But don't expect to hear wedding bells ringing out for the catwalk queen anytime soon. "I don't think so. No. No," she told Marie Claire when asked if marriage was on the cards.Heidi and her ex-husband Seal famously renewed their wedding vows every year during their seven-year union. "I wanted to keep the memory of our wedding alive every year, that's why I thought it would be fun to get married over and over," she said of that tradition. "But now I don't think it's that important. I'm not angry about anything, but I don't think I will. Maybe if I'm with someone for 15 or 20 years, and we do it in our old age as a fun thing to do… But I don't have the urgency anymore".
