Mere hours after Heidi Klum and Seal confirmed their divorce, interviews between Seal and Ellen DeGeneres (airing today) and PBS' Tavis Smiley (Friday) hit the web.
The topic of his separation was not off the table. Not even close.
About to embark on a new album tour, Seal is more than willing to openly speak about what shocked us - and himself, apparently. "I think we were shocked," he said.
"You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say 'I do' and you say ''Till death do us part.' Those vows hold value," the singer told Ellen.
"They are not just words. These things happen. We pretty much said how we feel and made it clear in the release statement."
"But, for intents and purposes of this show, you just grow apart after awhile. You try and you work through it and the thing that you quickly realize when you are married and you become a parent is you do the best that you can."
"It makes you actually appreciate your parents a lot more."
