The statement reads,
“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.”
Heidi and Seal are parents to four children, Henry Günther, 6, and Johan Riley, 5, daughter, Lou Soulula, 2, and daughter Leni, 7, from Klum’s previous relationship. Seal legally adopted the child in 2005.
We wish them well in this difficult time.
