Yesterday, I heard the saddest celebrity news ever: Heidi Klum and Seal are officially separating after 7 years of marriage. This was undoubtedly my favourite power-house couple of all time. I remember watching them singing their first duet at a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2008 and thinking, “Is there anything that these two can’t do?!” Both Seal and Klum are independent, talented, successful, and good-looking, yet they seemed to make far more sense together than apart.
For me, Klum and Seal’s marriage always represented the kind of relationship that I hope I might have some day. They appeared so comfortable with each other, and just always seemed to be having fun. I love it that they used to renew their wedding vows every year in a themed ceremony, and that their Halloween costumes were always crazy as opposed to sexy. Their relationship exuded so much energy, passion, and exuberance, and they always looked so happy together.
I think what it all comes down to is that they just seemed so very much in love. The laughing-all-day-in-bed-with-no-makeup-on kind of love. The kind of love that people – like Seal – write songs about. The kind of love that every girl dreams of.
