In an interview airing today on the Ellen Show, Seal (who is STILL wearing his wedding band BTW) has broken his silence about about being completely in “SHOCK” and “grieving” about his split with wife Heidi Klum.
“I think we were shocked. You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say ‘I do’ and you say ”til death do us part.’ Those vows hold value. They are not just words. These things happen.”
“….you just grow apart after awhile. You try and you work through it and the thing that you quickly realize when you are married and you become a parent you do the best that you can. It makes you actually appreciate your parents a lot more. The thing that I’m most proud about this great woman who married (and I really do mean that from the bottom of my heart), is that together she has given me four incredible gifts four beautiful children. She still, in my opinion, the most wonderful woman in the world. I think our priority was to remain civil and do this thing with dignity. We still very much love each other.”
*tear* He goes on to say:
“It’s not a question of we were never to follow suit of some break-up or separations that you hear about, especially in our industry. It’s a shame. To say that neither of us were grieving would be an out-and-out lie (and I don’t mind telling you that). I think the operative here is that we are civil to each other and we both have a tremendous amount of respect and love and we try and do this with as much dignity as we possibly can. And of course, when you have four children, you hope and pray that the rest of the world will respect that we have four children and that their little hearts are at stake too.”
So why is the crooner still wearing his wedding band? Ellen asked and Seal answered:
“Yes, I am still wearing my ring. I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years. Eight wonderful years together. Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person. We will be connected in many ways ’til the rest of our lives … Will we wear the ring for the rest of our lives? Who knows? But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand so I have intentions of taking it off anytime soon.”
Wow. That’s kinda…..heavy.
I often wonder if there is a way they can possibly work things out? I don’t know about Heidi, but Seal appears to STILL want the marriage. May Heidi is the one who pushed for the split? Hmmmmmm.
