Heidi Klum says Seal is "a wonderful daddy"

Heidi_and_seal Project Runway host Heidi Klum is thankful for her "very normal childhood," and says she wants to bestow the same upon her kids with musician Seal — 4-year-old Leni, 2 ½-year-old Henry and 19 ½-month-old Johan. Growing up in Germany, Heidi tells Parade that she, her parents and her brother "would talk to each other about what we did during the day," adding that she feels "it’s important to try to keep that in a family." Fortunately, Heidi and Seal are of like mind when it comes to raising their children. She says,

Seal is a wonderful daddy. He never minded changing diapers, he loves to sing lullabies and he’s always 100% there. We have that in common as parents.

Heidi, 35, and Seal, 45, were married in 2005.

They seem to be really grounded and focused on what’s best for the kids. I like that. It’s irritating to see the kids paraded around like accessories nowadays!

I really admire these two. They really turned a potentially awkward situation into something extremely positive and rewarding.

Those children are very lucky and they seem well adjusted. I wish this family nothing but the best.

not that it really matters since he’s who helps raise her,but did Seal legally adopt Leni? I commend him,not many men would want to date a pregnant woman or raise a child that’s not his and treat the child like he or she actually is his. he’s a good guy
