A day after confirming his impending divorce, Seal is opening up about his amicable split to Heidi Klum (and why he’s still wearing his wedding ring.)
“I think we were shocked,” Seal told Ellen DeGeneres on Monday’s show. “You go into these things with the greatest intentions when you say ‘I do’ and you say ‘’til death do us part.’ Those vows hold value … These things happen.”
The pair, who married in 2005, announced their split Monday, stating: “We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart.”
Seal also explained to the talk show host why he was still wearing his wedding ring. “I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman,” he said. “Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person … Will I wear the ring for the rest of my life?
Who knows? But right now it feels really comfortable on my hand so I have no intentions of taking it off anytime soon.”
