Heidi`s mother is a dental hygienist and her father worked for General Motors.
- Heidi currently lives in London.
- A chance meeting with Formula One driver David Coulthard at a party in 1997 led to an engagement with the Scotsman. In May 2000, Heidi and David narrowly escaped death when they were involved in a major plane crash. The couple was lucky to emerge almost unhurt from the wreckage, but the two pilots were killed in the incident.
Heidi`s relationship with the racing driver, however, ended a year later in a highly publicized split-up that made the headlines in the British tabloids for weeks.
