London: Singer Seal has revealed that neither he nor his now-estranged wife Heidi Klum ever considered staying together for the sake of their kids because they do not consider it to be a healthy way of living. The couple, who were known to renew their wedding vows every year, shocked the world last weekend by confirming reports that they were splitting up and the ‘Kiss From a Rose’ singer admits he didn’t want to deceive their four kids by pretending nothing was wrong.
“You often hear couples talk about, ‘We stay together because of the kids’. I don’t necessarily understand how healthy that is because kids are a lot smarter than you think they are... They’re very intuitive. In fact, we are less intuitive than they are... and if there is any disconnect they pick up on it,” a leading daily has quoted him as saying.
“We talk to them, we tried to explain as best we could what is going on... just explaining to them that things will be different without going into too much detail, but a lot of things won’t change.
“The main thing is to make sure that they feel that they’re loved, make sure that they understand that their parents love each other, make sure that they understand that if there are any changes it is absolutely nothing to do with them and it won’t change the amount of time... in actual fact it may even improve the amount of time that we spend with them, quality time,” he added.
