Heidi and Seal--it's auf!

January 23, 2012|By Dana Moran | RedEye

When Kim Kardashian and what's-his-face split, we were not so much shocked. But Heidi and Seal -- total devastation! These two lovebirds have seemed totally tight since Day 1, so we were crushed Monday when the couple confirmed rumors of their breakup. We put together a timeline of happier moments to help you make it through this trying time.

2004

Heidi and Seal meet for the first time in a New York City hotel lobby. She told Oprah it went like this: "He came in just from the gym and I was sitting there and I was, like, wow. And I pretty much saw everything. The whole package." Clarification: He was wearing bike shorts.

May

Slightly awkward fact about this romance: Heidi already was pregnant with another man's child when they met. But no matter: Seal was by her side when she gave birth to her first daughter, Leni.

December

Seal proposes to Heidi at a Canadian ski resort. Not to be outdone by the natural beauty, he popped the question inside an igloo he'd built for the occasion. There also may have been a bearskin rug involved.

2005

May

Zee wedding! Given the wildness of the proposal, you'd expect the marriage to be something on the Katy Perry-Russell Brand level, but Heidi and Seal kept it cool with a Mexican seaside affair.

September

And baby makes four! Son Henry joins Leni as Heidi and Seal begin rapidly expanding their brood.

2006

May

The couple begins their tradition of renewing their wedding vows every year. And by every year, we mean they've legitimately had six ceremonies, including a retro-themed one in 2009, and the day in 2010 when they required their guests to dress as brides and grooms.

November

Welcome, Johan! Heidi's not wasting any of her babymaking time, with her third child in as many years.

2009

October

Well, they waited a little while for this one. New daughter Lou showed up to hang with Leni, Henry and Johan -- is it just us or was Heidi pregnant on half the seasons of "Project Runway"?

2011

October

Another Heidi and Seal family tradition? The Halloween party to end all Halloween parties. This may have been their last year, and they decked themselves out in elaborate gorilla costumes. We'll be sad to see these bashes go.
