German supermodel Heidi Klum's $2.5 million (GBP1.4 million) modelling contract with Victoria's Secret bans her from marrying singer boyfriend Seal.

The American firm forced Klum to agree to a clause in her contract with them, banning her from "altering her image" - which marriage would do.

According to German magazine GALA, Victoria's Secret bosses regarded Klum's pregnancy and the recent birth of her daughter LENI equally "image hurting" - and the model had to work out furiously to regain her figure for a fashion shoot just 34 days after the birth, or risk the termination of her contract.

Klum has been dating Seal since splitting from ex-lover, motor racing boss FLAVIO BRIATORE - who is the father of baby Leni.
