The Epic Ascent to Fame

Heidi, Helene’s mother, started seeing Briatore in 2002 after divorcing stylist Ric Pipino, who was then the manager of the Renault F1 team. Klum made her official pregnancy announcement in December 2003. The relationship started off pretty passionately, but because of their jobs, they were forced to live on opposite continents—she was in Los Angeles and he was in London. That distance eventually became, in Briatore’s words, “unbridgeable.” Within weeks of the announcement, they broke up.

Seal and newly single Klum first met at an awards night in London. A few weeks later, they ran into each other at an upscale gym in New York; he had just finished his workout and was only wearing a towel. They went on their first date in Los Angeles five weeks after that, and the next morning she informed him of her pregnancy. When Seal was younger, his father assaulted him with belts and fists, and his mother had been sent back to Nigeria. He was driven to be a good father figure for others because of his difficult upbringing.

He admitted to Klum that he was prepared to effectively handle fatherhood. They continued their relationship, and on May 4, 2004, in New York City, New York, USA, Klum gave birth to her daughter Helene. In attendance during the delivery was Seal. It was decided by Klum, Seal, and Briatore that Seal would act as Helene’s father figure. Seal proposed to Heidi in December 2004 on a glacier 14,000 feet above the ground in British Columbia, just a few months after the baby was born. Their wedding day was May 10, 2005.

Although Helene and Briatore used to speak on the phone for two hours each day when she was old enough, the latter argued that “it wasn’t enough” in an interview with the Italian newspaper “Corriere della Sera.” In December 2009, Helene was formally adopted by Seal, and her name was legally changed to Helene Samuel. On April 6, 2012, Klum filed for divorce from Seal. It was completed on October 14, 2015. Even after their divorce, Seal is still a significant figure in Helene’s life. Seal is Leni’s father, according to Klum, who has long insisted on this.
