The Supermodel Formerly Known as Heidi Klum

11/20/2009 7:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Heidi KlumTMZ has learned Heidi Klum was officially docked a few precious sexy points today -- because she just had her last name legally changed from "Klum" to "Samuel."

The Victoria's Secret supermodel filed papers early last month asking permission to take on the last name of her husband, Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adelo Samuel -- she was finally given the okay today.

It could have been worse ... she could have changed her name to Heidi Olusegun.

Cut the racial sensitivity crocodile tears. Taking the husband's last name is a silly sexist tradition that should have gone out with slavery.

TMZ isnt being racist, 'Olusegun' just doesnt sound sexy period. And neither does Samuel.
This is like Gisele changing her last name to Brady.

Are you kidding me, why would she bother? SEAL doesn't even use his last name.

27. Yeah, Klum matches well with Heidi and is part of her brand name. Like Tyra Banks or Claudia Schiffer. You wouldnt have them any other way.
It has nothing to do with culture, it'd be worst if she changed her last name to something like Stewart.
For the record I think what shes doing is great. But TMZ is right and her super model mystique just went a tad.

Sometimes, instead of good reporting or reporting something of interest, you guys are just straight up haters. Simply put. I dont know if its the lack of material or intelligence but make no mistake it is perfectly acceptable and expected that a woman should take the name of her husband. Not long ago it was out of the question that she did not.
