|KISS FROM A ROSE?|
|IN HAPPIER TIMES|
According to the soon to be divorced husband of the German born Supermodel- Seal says he believes the pair can avoid a messy breakup.
"In terms of our love and respect for each other, it hasn't changed at all," he says in an interview airing Friday on Tavis Smiley on PBS. "And I think that when two people feel that way about each other, it is easy – it is easier to make that transition." He went on further to say- Seal adds that their children "are our first priority" and that the pair can still remain friends "especially when there are other things to take into consideration like family."
"What one has to do in this situation is remain civil and to retain one's dignity and to be professional and to understand that we are not the only people on this planet that go through this," he says. "It is just unfortunately a chapter of life."
Later on while on one of his publicity rounds, to promote his new album Soul 2, he appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show and explained why he still has his wedding ring on-
As to whether he'll wear the ring for the rest of his life, he says, "Who knows?"
"But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand so I have no intentions of taking it off anytime soon," he says.
The separation, he tells DeGeneres, left him and Klum just as "shocked" as everybody. But he says the pair found that "you just grow apart after awhile."
"It's a shame," he says. "To say that neither of us were grieving would be an out-and-out lie."
The pair have 3 kids together-Henry Gunther-6, Johan Riley-5, Lou-2 & Leni-7 from Heidi's previous relationship.
