Seal and Heidi Klum interview in Hello and In Touch Magazines

10/20/2005 at 02:37 PM ET

Heidi1 Wow, I love Seal. Such a stand up guy. I love how he tells the interviewer that Henry is not his first child, Leni is. What a man. Here are some interview highlights-

-Heidi is breastfeeding, but pumps in the evenings so that she can sleep for 4 hours at a time, and Seal or her mom feeds Henry. She also credits the breastpump and cold packs for allowing her to go to the Emmys, although she didn’t end up needing them.

-Heidi says that Henry’s birth was easier than Leni’s, because she knew what to expect, and that she would never consider an elective c-section for a few reasons – because she likes the experience of a vaginal birth, and also that she’s scared to have her abdomen cut open!

-The did not find out the sex, but both Seal and Heidi had strong feelings that they were having a boy.

-Seal cut the umbilical cord, just as he did with Leni.

-Seal took offense to the interviewer asking him how he felt holding his first child in his arms. Seal replied, "How come ‘my first child’? Leni is my first child. Just like Henry, I saw her take shape and move in Heidi’s body. And I was present at her birth too. Leni is my daughter and Henry is my son."

I love Seal, I think he’s such an amazing guy for being the way he is. They make such a beautiful family, and I’m sure Heidi knows she’s got one of the really great guys there. The new baby is as beautiful as his big sister. Congratulations to them all.

Heidi and Seal have a lovely family. I’m jealous of her even more now. She has two beautiful children with an amazing husband. ♥♥

Can I have that, please?🙂

When I see men like Seal, who are willing to take on the role of father to a child who is not biologically “his”, is touches my heart. I have a husband who did exactly the same thing. Even though people raise their eyebrows when he says he has children and grandchildren (because he is 12 years younger than I am), he is very quick to point out there is no “step” in front of the “children” – that they are his, biologically or not. What a beautiful family the Samuels make, and what a great example Seal is for men everywhere.

Melissa, I also have a DH who took on kids that weren’t biologically his. Two of them, and my son has developmental and physical problems on top of that. There are so many deadbeat dads out there it is so nice to see real men being real fathers! No matter the biology!

What a beautiful family they make. Very lucky children!

This is sure a very lovely family!!! I think Seal is a very great man. I saw the article and I can feel that they are very very happy and enjoy much about their present life.

I think little henry and big sister, Leni are both very cute. Henry is cuter in these pics!! How a wonderful and warm family!!

Best wishes to them.

Gosh, they look so happy and content! To see their family warms me to the bottom of my heart because the Samuels remind me of my own family.

Even though my mother and I are both white, we were accepted unconditionally by my late stepfather and his family just as if we were blood. As one who has been in little Leni’s shoes, I cannot begin to express how happy I am for both Leni and her daddy that they found one another.

Also, I’ll be the first one to say it: Straight up, Henry is not a very attractive baby at all.

But wait, don’t lynch me yet! LOL Henry looks remarkably like my younger brother did at the same age. Rob, who is now 34, has grown up to be 6’4″ and breathtakingly gorgeous. I predict little Henry Samuels will do the same.

Melissa on

I still think little Henry is beautiful! I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

Henry looks wierd in the other pictures posted and i’ve read some very nasty comments about him but i think he looks sooo cute in that picture with his tongue sticking out. I have so many pics of my son doing that at his age. Most newborns dont take very good pictures anyway. Who knew a newborn doesn’t know how to pose for the

Oh and I think it’s great that she likes to have a vaginal delivery. I had my son with no drugs what so ever and it is the coolest feeling ever. Every women should get to experience that at least once in her life. I’m definitly doing the same for the next one.
