Heidi Klum: Why Seal and I Hang Naked Pics of Ourselves at Home

Here's the naked truth from Heidi Klum: yes, as rumored, she and husband Seal decorated their bedroom with photos of themselves in the buff.

The supermodel and mom fessed up during a Thursday appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Apparently, a visitor to her home ("I was getting a fitting," Klum says) glimpsed the nude photos in Klum's "private bedroom" and promptly called the papers. "Which is so mean," Klum told Ellen DeGeneres. "And that is how this whole thing started about our semi-nudey, artsy photos that we have."

Klum asked DeGeneres, "Don't you have beautiful photos of you and, you know, Portia [De Rossi, DeGeneres' partner]? Why not?"

Klum, 36, and singer Seal have been married since 2005 and have four kids together (Seal adopted 5-year-old Leni, Klum's daughter from a previous relationship.) Their youngest, baby girl Lou, was born last October.

The Project Runway hostess clarified that the au-naturel pics aren't super-kinky. "We're not doing some naked voodoo dancing crazy business. Its just photos!"

"They were not for anyone to see," she added.  "It's not like we're showing them to everybody.  They're in our bedroom."
