Heidi Klum embraced her German roots on Sunday, just days after being granted an emergency hearing to determine whether or not she can take her four children to her home country.
The supermodel wore a red bikini as she was joined by Leipzig-born husband Tom Kaulitz as they cheered Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to a narrow 1-0 victory against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League final.
Heidi, 47, was celebrating the win after obtaining an emergency court hearing as she pushes to take her four children with ex-husband Seal to Germany for three and a half months while she films Next Top Model.
In a court filing obtained by DailyMail.com, Grammy Award-winner Seal is concerned about them traveling to the European country due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19.
The former couple, whose divorce was finalized in October 2014 after nine years of marriage, share joint legal and physical custody of daughters Leni, 16, and Lou, 10, and sons Henry, 14, and Johan, 13.
Despite the ongoing controversy, spirits were high as Heidi and Tom shared a raft of videos from their Los Angeles home throughout Sunday’s match.

Both gave a nod to Bayern Munich’s home colours, with Heidi sporting a bold red bikini that inevitably drew attention to her supermodel physique.
Meanwhile Tom wore a club shirt as they watched the German giants play out a tense Champion’s League final against the French league winners.
Watching from home as Kingsley Coman headed in the game’s only goal, the couple roared with delight as the team celebrated their sixth Champions League trophy.
Heidi is scheduled to fly to Berlin in October to shoot season 16 of Next Top Model for three and a half months, but Seal has not approved the trip.
Typically the reality competition show would tape in Los Angeles, but the German cast and crew weren’t able to enter the US due to the coronavirus crisis.
‘I am well aware of all of the necessary precautions associated with the COVID-19 virus, and would never put our children at risk — I have taken all the precautions for Germany the same way I do in the United States,’ Heidi wrote in her court filing.

She also said she’s willing to adjust their custody schedule this year so that the their father could spend Christmas with them.
‘There will be a three-week break for the Christmas holidays … Though the children were originally slated to spend this Christmas break with me (as Henry spent Christmas 2019 with them), I am willing to agree that Henry spend the Christmas break with them again this year so that the children can be with their father during this time, if Henry would like this,’ she added.
Heidi further claims that she tried to ‘work this out with Henry directly to no avail’ before requesting the hearing, and that the children do not want to stay in Los Angeles with Seal, 57.
Oldest daughter Leni has also submitted a declaration to the court to give her support for the trip to Germany.
‘This is hard because I love both of my parents, but I feel like I need to speak up. I understand that my siblings are too young to speak to the judge, so I am happy to speak for all of us,’ the 16-year-old wrote.
‘My mom needs to film in Germany for a few months and my siblings and I want to go with her.’
