Celebrating Celebrity Baby Birthdays – Henry Samuel

09/12/2006 at 08:59 AM ET

Happy Birthday Henry. You are now 1 year old!

Name: Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel

Birthday: 12th September 2005

Famous for: Being the second child and first biological child of supermodel Heidi Klum and her singer husband, Seal.

Name meaning: Henry’s father Seal’s real name is Sealhenry. Gunther is after Heidi’s father and Ademola is a name from Seal’s family. Dashtu is a name Seal came up with, meaning "-2", to illustrate the concept of another child, as explained by Heidi on Conan O’Brien.

Siblings: Henry has an older half-biological sister, Leni. Heidi considers Seal Leni’s father.

What they said:

How has life changed for Klum since becoming a mother twice over?: "Two kids’ car seats, more diapers and, as any new parents will tell you, less sleep."

Eight weeks after Henry was born, Heidi walked the catwalk for Victoria Secret, saying that "if you like what you do, you can juggle everything."

Even though Heidi is a business woman and supermodel, she says that her "favorite (role) is being a mom and wife."

I think it is pretty interesting as they are two so different individuals, so beautiful with high ambitions. Now, their second child is on its way. They look so lovely and the baby is so so cute.
