Singer Seal is married to model Heidi Klum, and they have three kids together – 4-year-old Leni, whose biological father is Flavio Briatore; Henry, who is 3; and Johan, 2 this month. The couple met 5 years ago, at the GQ Awards in London, and although their relationship didn’t begin until a chance encounter in New York weeks later, Seal was already smitten!
‘I was taken aback when I met her,’ says Seal. ‘I thought she was one of the most beautiful women I’d seen. I thought: “Wow! Whoever goes out with that girl is one lucky guy!”
When they first started dating, Seal was in a bit of a surprise,
‘A month into our relationship, she told me she was pregnant, but was no longer with the father. I told her it didn’t change the way I felt about her. Apart from being my wife, she’s also my best friend.’
Seal and Heidi married after Leni’s 2004 birth, and Heidi has always been adamant that “Seal is Leni’s father.”
Seal’s next album, Soul, is out November 10.
