Auf Wiedersehen, maternity clothes! Heidi Klum has given birth to a girl. The Project Runway host delivered daughter Lou Sulola Samuel on Friday, October 9th, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
The supermodel and TV host’s husband, Seal, released the following statement Sunday evening after going home with their daughter, who joins siblings Johan, 2 ½, Henry, 4, and Leni, 5.
“It’s difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children,” Seal writes. “Anyone who has a family will tell you this. Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all of your heart, how then can one possibly find more heart with which to love another?”
“On Friday, Oct. 9, 2009, at 7:46 p.m., the answer to this question came in the form of our fourth child and second daughter,” he continues. “Lou Sulola Samuel was born, and from the moment she looked into both of our eyes, it was endless love at first sight. She is beautiful beyond words and we are happy that she chose us to watch her grow over the coming years.”
Back in April, husband Seal announced the pregnancy news during a show at Radio City Music Hall — much to the model’s surprise!
“[The news] came out faster than I wanted it to,” Heidi, 36, said at the time. “My husband kind of surprised me and everybody at one of his concerts.”
But Seal wasn’t the only one who was excited. The following month — citing Heidi’s inability to keep a secret — they revealed that baby-on-the-way was a girl.
Heidi — who recently applied to change her last name to Seal’s surname of Samuel — and the “Kiss From a Rose” singer wed in 2005.
