The big celebrity news of the weekend, aside from the passing of Joe Paterno, is of course the breaking up of Seal and Heidi Klum. I have my favorites when it comes to celeb couplings, and Heidi and Seal are definitely one of them.
First of all Klum is all kinds of amazing, she is smart, sassy, funny and just plain adorable. You then put in Seal who is more withdrawn but who clearly still knows how to have fun, then add that he took in Klum’s first daughter as his own very early into their relationship…and you have an all star couple!
They seemed to be in married bliss, even renewing their vows every year, the power couple have four children together. Their youngest Lou is only 2 years old, when did it go so wrong!
The official statement from the couple:
“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.”
I get it, I do, you have a lot of children, they are all young, you are trying to make it work, they are both super busy, but seven years? Yes, its significant, but with 4 kids, its really not that long, why not stick it out for a little more…They just renewed their vows last year! Your whole marriage has fallen apart in less than a year and you want to just throw it all away? With 4 children?
Unless someone cheated, I think they are tossing in the towel way too soon. These things always find a way of coming to light, hopefully we find out later on what exactly happened. Nobody is perfect, and being in Hollywood a relationship is nearly impossible, but these two seemed to be doing it right, its sad that they didn’t keep trying.
