After a weekend filled with speculation, Project Runway’s Heidi Klum, 38, and Grammy-winning rose-kisser Seal, 48, confirmed yesterday that after almost 7 years of marriage they are indeed calling it quits and headed for divorce.
In a joint statement, the newly separated couple said:
“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.”
Klum and Seal have four children together ages 2 to 7 years old. Aaaand I have nothing even vaguely humorous or witty to say about any of this. Sorries.
I honestly can’t explain why I’m so bummed about this, but I am. Maybe because they seemed – unlike so many other couples (and celebrity ones especially) – to actually be genuinely happy? That it seemed like they might be one of the rare Hollywood couples that would make it? Something like that. Just goes to show how little anyone knows about what goes on in any marriage behind closed doors.
