In an interview, 49-year-old Heidi Klum revealed that she and her husband had a colonoscopy while on a health retreat.

Model made an appearance on Thursday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” to discuss the special trip.

Before a separate trip to St. Barts, Klum also revealed that she had an endoscopy.

A colonoscopy was part of Heidi Klum and Seal’s health retreat to celebrate their anniversary.

Thursday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the “Making the Cut” host and guest host, comedian Nicole Byer, discussed their recent trip. Klum revealed that she and her German guitarist husband Tom Kaulitz celebrated their three year wedding anniversary by checking into a “hardcore” wellness retreat in Austria in order to help Kaulitz cope with his cluster headaches.

At some point during the trip, Klum mentioned to Byer that she had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. The Mayo Clinic states that while an endoscopy examines the upper digestive system, a colonoscopy is used to look at the large intestine and rectum. Both methods employ the use of a camera at the end of a long tube to monitor progress.

The usual location for a photo of Klum is outside, but this time “they were all in there.”

The American Cancer Society recommends having regular colonoscopies beginning at age 45, but the supermodel admitted that she was “late to the party” in getting one at age 49. She continued her anniversary trip to St. Barts with her husband and children after the test results came back normal, according to Klum.

Heidi Klum (@heidiklum) recently revealed that she and Kaulitz tied the knot twice in 2019: once in a private ceremony in February and again in August, aboard a yacht, according to Vogue France. From 1997 to 2002, Klum was wed to celebrity hairstylist Ric Pipino; from 2005 to 2014, she was wed to singer Seal.

Although Kaulitz and Klum do not have any biological children together, the musician is the stepfather to Klum’s three children from a previous relationship with Seal: Henry, 15, and Lou, 12. In addition to adopting 18-year-old Leni, the daughter of Klum and Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, Seal has a daughter named Lou.

As part of her conversation with Byer, Klum revealed that the worst date she had before she married Kaulitz involved going to a movie with a man who sat through the entire film with a bucket of popcorn in his lap.

“I found it odd that he was holding the popcorn to begin with; after all, why should I have to bend over to get some? It would be helpful if you reached over, so why don’t you? “…she explained. “As I reached over to grab some popcorn, I bit into a hot dog that was still attached to the kernels. The one with the unclipped hot dog.”

The model described the date as “weird” and “memorable,” but Byer joked that it was “something you talk about in therapy.”
