Heidi Klum and Seal’s marriage seemed perfect, and everyone thought that they were one of these couples that would last forever. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.

In 2012, the couple announced their decision to end their marriage of 7 years. It’s worth mentioning that it was remarkably amicable; they said in a statement at the time:

While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.

We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart.

Although the decision was mutual, it wasn’t easy for both of them. But, despite speculations, they held no grudges against each other, and the way Seal spoke about Heidi shortly after the announcement is what any man could learn from.

Seal opens up to Ellen about the divorce

Seal knew who he could tell about his feelings without being judged or misinterpreted. He made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and spoke candidly about his and Heidi’s decision.

The singer told Ellen:

You go into these things with the greatest intentions, you know, when you say ‘I do’, when you say ‘till death do us part’. Those vows hold value, they’re not just words. But these things happen.

He went on to tell that their statement described how they truly felt:

We’ve pretty much said how we feel, I think we made it clear in the release statement. But for the intents and purposes of this show… You just grow apart after a while. I mean, you try and you work through it. And the thing you quickly realize when you are married and you become a parent is you do the best that you can.

Their decision to part ways was certain at that point, but Seal admitted that he still adored Heidi and was grateful to her for the best gift she could ever give him – their children:

The thing that I’m most proud about, about this great woman who I married, and I really do mean that from the bottom of my heart, is that together, she has given me four incredible gifts – four beautiful children.

She’s still, in my opinion, the most wonderful woman in the world.

Heidi moved on

Seal’s love life isn’t much talked about these days, but his ex-wife Heidi made headlines earlier this year with an unexpected announcement.

The former model announced that her boyfriend, German musician Tom Kaulitz, asked her to be his wife.

She said on The Ellen Show shortly before the announcement:

I've been married twice. I still believe in love and marriage, I do. Even though I failed twice at it. I guess I'm not very good at it. But I found a great person, so let's see what happens.

They say third time is a charm, so let’s hope it works for her this time.
