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.

They went on to have three more children together, and renew their vows several times before their marriage came to an end seven years after they said, 'I Do'.

The German model went on to find love once again with Tokio Hotel rocker, Tom Kaulitz, while Seal remains single.  

Co-parenting hasn't been easy for Heidi and Seal and she confessed to the Express that trying to parent with "someone you're not with anymore" isn't "all rosy".

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