Seal told the Mirror: "I laughed and said, 'Already? That's amazing!' She said, ‘Not with you stupid'."

Never-the-less Seal wasn't ready to give up on Heidi and became her firstborn's father before marrying the German model in 2005.

Heidi and Seal have four children 

But while Heidi has gone on to find love once again with Tokio Hotel rocker, Tom Kaulitz, Seal remains single and the former couple's relationship strained. 

Seal hinted at problems when he recently opened up to US Weekly and revealed details of their co-parenting: "It can be challenging. It requires teamwork. If you are a team, if both parents are a team, then it is really easy and that's not a real challenge at all."

He continued: "But you have to be a team. And if you're not a team, then it can all fall to pieces."
Seal then shocked when he admitted: "I never had that teamwork [with Heidi]. We never had teamwork."

Heidi is married to Tom Kaulitz 

Considering their beginning, it is a shame that their bond appears to be broken. 

Heidi reiterated Seal's comments when she spoke to the Express and said co-parenting with "someone you're not with anymore" isn't "all rosy".

She also confessed that her relationship with Seal was "sometimes hard," but that all they could do was "try".
