The two met in 2004 in the lobby of a New York hotel while Heidi was pregnant with her first child. Heidi recalled the incident on the Oprah show saying, “He came in just from the gym and I was sitting there and I was like, wow. And I pretty much saw everything. The whole package.” The two seemed to spark an instant connection and a relationship ensued.
In May of the same year she gave birth to a daughter, Leni, with Seal there to assume a parental role. Later that year he proceeded to dedicate an album he recorded to “his daughter Leni” and in 2009 the singer legally adopted Heidi’s daughter. In the past several years the couple has presented an image of marital bliss and family bonds having brought three more children into the world together. Their children now include Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
Despite this image, gossipy sources have declared that the split was “a long time coming” and that Seal’s anger issues may have played a role in the relationship’s downfall, as well as the different directions their careers have begun to take them. The couple released this statement regarding the separation:
“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. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children’s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”
Kristin Cavallari announces pregnancy
While one relationship is coming to a close the romance between Kristin Cavallari and husband Jay Cutler has led to the announcement of a child on the way.
The on again off again relationship looks to be solidly switched to the on position and the two have emerged together with excitment regarding an addition to their family. The reality show star made a name for herself on “Laguna Beach” as a vixen, but has since settled down with Chicago Bears quarterback-Jay Cutler.
The relationship hasn’t always been smooth sailing as the two were originally engaged in April 2011 until the the wedding was called off in July amid the planning stages. After months apart the couple recommitted to tying the knot and became engaged again in November.
The two seem to glow as they stand on the brink of matrimony and parenthood. They recently told People Magazine, “We are thrilled to announce we are expecting our first child together. It’s an amazing time in our life and we can’t wait to meet the new addition to our growing family.”
