Heidi Klum and Seal have confirmed that they’re separating, after rumours of unrest surfaced on US gossip websites late last week.
“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,” Heidi, 38, and Seal, 48, wrote in a joint statement. “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.”
The couple have four children: Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.
