Heidi Klum the most wonderful woman: Seal

London: Singer Seal says that his estranged wife Heidi Klum is the `most wonderful woman in the world`.

The `Kiss From A Rose` hitmaker, who raises four children, Leni, seven, Henry, six, Johan, five, and two-year-old Lou, with the German supermodel, explained the couple still "very much love each other", despite announcing their split Jan 23.

"The thing that I`m most proud about this great woman who married, and I really do mean that from the bottom of my heart, is that together she has given me four incredible gifts ... four beautiful children,"contcatmusic.com quoted the 48-year-old as saying.

"She is still, in my opinion, the most wonderful woman in the world. I think our priority was to remain civil and do this thing with dignity. We still very much love each other. To say that neither of us were grieving would be an out-and-out lie, and I don`t mind telling you that," he added.
