Heidi Klum and Seal reveal 7-week-old baby Lou Sulola


These are new photos of Heidi Klum and Seal’s 7-week-old daughter Lou Sulola. Heidi put them up on her website rather than selling them to a magazine. Lou has a lot of hair, doesn’t she? She’s a little cutie. Alleged, I came out the same way – my mom always said that I had a full head of black hair, and for months it stood straight up. On her website, Heidi included photos of herself with Lou, Lou with Seal, one of Lou solo, and one of Heidi and all of her children: 5-year-old Leni, 4-year-old Henry, and 2 and a half year old Johan. Heidi also noted on her website:

It´s difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children. Anyone who has a family will tell you this. Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all of your heart, how then can one possibly find more heart with which to love another?

On Friday October ninth 2009 at 7:46pm, the answer to this question came in the form of our fourth child and second daughter. Lou Sulola was born and from the moment she looked into both of our eyes it was endless love at first sight. She is beautiful beyond words and we are happy that she chose us to watch her grow over the coming years.

[From Heidi Klum’s website]

Lou and the two boys are Seal’s biological children. Leni’s biological father is Flavio Briatore, who has never had a relationship with Leni from what Heidi has said in the past. Heidi and Seal got together when Heidi was pregnant with Leni, and Seal has always raised Leni as his own child, unconditionally. I’m Not Obsessed noted that, according to Heidi’s dad, Seal wants to formally adopt Leni, and that it will likely happen before Christmas:

Seal wants to adopt Heidi Klum’s daughter before Christmas.

The ‘Kiss From A Rose’ singer is keen to take legal guardianship of five-year-old Leni – his wife’s daughter from her relationship with Formula One boss Flavio Briatore – and has already begun the legal proceedings.

Heidi’s father Guenther said: “Heidi, Seal and the kids have always been a happy family – in everyday life and in their hearts. Then they should also be happy on paper.”

Seal – who has three children with Heidi, Henry, four, Johan, three, and six-week-old Lou – has been given the go-ahead by Flavio to adopt Leni.

Seal has always thought of Leni as his own daughter, even though he did not father her, as he got together with Heidi while she was still pregnant with Leni. Speaking soon after Henry’s birth, Seal said: “Leni is my first child. Just like Henry I saw her take shape and move in Heidi’s body. And I was present at her birth, too. Leni is my daughter and Henry is my son. I am happy to have two healthy children and that Henry will soon be saying papa to me just like Leni does already.”

I love this family so much. Part of it is that I just think they’re for real. This isn’t just some media strategy or staging. This is how they really feel about each other, and how they feel about their family. Sigh… if we were all so lucky. Beautiful kids, beautiful parents, beautiful love.

  2. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Gorgeous baby!! Congrats, what a lovely family

  3. Felicia says:

    Awww, precious! Can’t imagine what it would be like having my looks picked apart in comparison to my parents like this little one will throughout life!

  4. heb says:

    Im surprised to hear Seal hasn’t adopted Leni yet–Heidi has always been very insistent to say that Seal and Seal alone is Leni’s father completely and that Flavio was pretty much just a sperm donor.

    I love them.

    Heidi looks fabulous in the first picture

  5. Firestarter says:

    cute baby!

  6. Ursula says:

    I love love this family too. You can tell that their love is real. They are both real and their children are gorgeous. I could not wait to see Lou. Her name suits her I can see.

    It would be nice if Seal adopted Leni, he is the de facto father. Briatore is a douche anyway, Leni will not miss what she has never had.

    You gotta love Seal, now that is a beautiful man. I envy Heidi.

  7. eternalcanadian says:

    so cute! the picture of heidi with all her kids is lovely!

    heb, the reason seal hasn’t adopted leni before now is because even if the “sperm donor” isn’t around he is still leni’s legal father. so maybe that was the holdup all these years, and the “sperm donor” has finally decided it is time to move forward and let seal adopt leni, eh.

  8. Megan says:

    This touches my heart…my husband and I were blessed enough that he was able to adopt my [now our] son at the same time as we were having our own biological daughter, and he truly loves our babies equally and unconditionally – it’s so wonderful seeing other families with that love as well. Also, how beautiful are those babies!?

  9. snowball says:

    What an awesomely sweet thing (the letter and the baby). I just love this family, you never hear garbage about one cheating or marriage contracts or that stupid stuff.

    Every time Seal and Heidi are out and about, they just ooze happiness. I love that Seal’s going to adopt Leni, what a great Christmas gift.

    There have been lots of cute babies posted lately (Tiger’s kids, Nicole’s baby, lots of Suri). Makes my biological clock want to turn back time, lol. Or not.

  10. SolitaryAngel says:

    Beautiful lucky baby, wonderful loving family.

  11. Cinderella says:

    Heidi and Seal are the real deal.

  12. Stephie says:

    What a beautiful family.

    Simply Scrumptious!

  16. Codzilla says:

    Gorgeous baby. Just adorable!

  17. lena says:

    Celebitchy please delete WTF comment.

    this baby is beautiful!

  18. stinabelle says:

    @ WTF: lol, whatever. Time to join 2009, mmkay?

    Anyway, what a beautiful baby. And I thought I read somewhere recently that Seal is in the process of/has recently adopted Leni.

  19. Kaiser says:

    WTF is deleted. That was ridiculous.

  20. lena says:

    Thank you Kaiser, It makes me sad that people actually think like this… Some people need to face the facts… The world is and has always mixed races, you don’t have to do it, but you will have to get used to it!

  21. Sandra says:

    Lovely family! Enjoyed seeing all of Heidi’s pics today too. Dad and Mom do a fine job on choosing names for their children. They will thank them as they grow up. Many blessings are wished for all of you. xoxo

  22. Huma says:

    I was so hoping I’d be able to read through all the comments and see only positive ones about this awesome little family, but I see one idiot had to ruin the streak. 😛 Oh, well. Heidi and Seal are still crazy awesome, and those babies are CUTE.

  23. lin234 says:

    What a beautiful way to introduce the world to their baby girl.

  24. Carrie Thompson says:

    Cute baby! I also love this family- I think these are some lucky little kids.

  25. AC says:

    im always so amazed that Seal got with Heidi while she was in early pregnancy. I just can’t imagine even a really stand up guy doing that. he’s so amazing!

    they’re inspirational. also their baby is ridiculously cute.

  26. Julie says:

    That is a beautiful statement from HK. Its is so sincere and from the heart. Move over Suri, little Lou is going to become the new ‘cutest child’ of a celebrity.

  27. TwinkleToes says:

    No child is more beautiful than Suri Cruise. So “Meh”.

  28. TaylorB says:

    What a cutie pa-tootie!

    I wish I had that beautiful hair, even now, I was born with a messy mop of red hair, big ears, and a few teeth… A female Alfred E. Newman according to my parents, it is a wonder I didn’t become a supermodel (setting aside the facts that I am 5 ft 3 on a good day, and the last time I was flat chested, and weighed under 100lbs was in grade school.) 😉

    On the upside, prior to fairly painful othodontia I could drink chunky soup and some stews through my front teeth, which was fun.

  29. Cheyenne says:

    Awwwww…. 🙂 She looks exactly like my little grandbaby with those big black eyes and that big mop of black hair and that lovely tan skin.

    What a precious, beautiful baby. Congrats to Mom and Dad.

  30. lastwordlinda says:

    Oh crap, I’m feeling all broody now. I love babies, even the ugly ones, and this one is definitely not ugly.

  31. Goddess711 says:

    That is one gorgeous baby! What a great picture!

  32. memnoch666 says:

    Love the fact that Heidi appears to have no make up on; probably has but looks so bare faced one could actually believe it. Refreshingly beautiful.

  33. GatsbyGal says:

    They’re my favorite celeb couple. Props to them for not playing the media game with the baby pictures. I definitely think the two of them are the real deal, and I hope they’re together for as long as they live.

  34. Lori Ledbetter says:

    Pure and beautiful, no make up necessary……how gorgeous.

  35. Sincerity says:

    Lou Sulola is a beautiful baby. Congratulations to both Heidi & Seal. May GOD continue to bless them and their lovely family. It’s always so much classier when couples decide to release baby pictures themselves as opposed to selling them to magazines. I know the financial incentives can be overwhelming but money is not everything. Parenthood, when done right, simply rocks!!!

  36. lanette says:

    the baby is adorable…

    Briatore wasn’t a spern donor. He went out with Heidi and when she got pregnant he dumped her saying that for him, it was just a fling.

    Kinda pull out a la Steve Bing who refused to recognize his son with Elizabeth Hurley until he was forced to take blood test and give money. However he doesn’t care about his son. Elizabeth’son father is technically her husband.

    At the time Heidi got pregnant, Briatore even said that he wasn’t sure it was his kid and that if it was he would rather have her abort cause according to him, Heidi set him up through pregnancy to get through his money.

    He never wanted Leni and has publicly stated it as wel as being happy for Seal to become legally what he is already technically, since Leni is the reason why he dumped heidi in the first pace and the child he never wanted.

  38. Gigohead says:

    Little Lou is beautiful! Congrats to the family.

  39. ME says:

    She’s ADORABLE!!! Look at that little face. She’s like, “why are you taking a picture of me?!”

  40. Minx2 says:

    What a beautiful family! The baby is gorgeous and Seal is just such an amazing guy. As to Briatore.. he’ll end up old and alone. I can imagine he didn’t want a relationship but to ignore his own child? Hope that Karma gets him, eventually..
