The former couple split in 2012 and Seal exclusively said We Weekly nearly a decade later, co-parenting can be “difficult.”
The Grammy winner explained at the time: “It takes teamwork. If you’re a team, if both parents are a team, then it’s really easy and not a real challenge at all. … But you have to be a team. And if you’re not a team, then everything can fall apart. …I never had that teamwork [with Klum]. We never had teamwork.

You have to [let them do] whatever makes them happy. You love them. You keep them safe to the best of your ability and then you let go. They have no challenges in the grand scheme of things. … They live in a nice house. They don’t have to worry about the food on the table. They benefit from an excellent education.
Klum got married Tom Kaulitz in February 2019. The previous year, the former Victoria’s Secret angel exclusively told We that his children were big fans of the musician.
