Supermodel and businesswoman Heidi Klum is the cover girl for the December issue of Ocean Drive magazine— and the 43-year-old is offering no apologies for who she is or who she’s with.

In an interview with the magazine, Heidi talks about her upcoming swimsuit collection, Heidi Klum Swim, but she also gets personal when she explains why she’s often photographed topless on beaches. She tells OD, “I grew up going to nude beaches with my parents, so I’m a nudist. I have no problems with nudity at all. I’m very free.”

When asked about the age difference between herself and her 30-year-old art dealer boyfriend,Vito Schnabel Klum says, “It’s not about age. We have an amazing connection, we have fun together, and we love each other. It doesn’t matter what people say.” Boom.

And here we thought a 10-year minimum age gap was standard requirement for most Hollywood relationships. Live your best life, Heidi!
