The 52-year-old singer opened up about his marriage to ex-wife, Heidi Klum, on Andy Cohen's SiriusXM radio show, Radio Andy
, on Monday, where he specifically addressed the former couple's annual vow renewals being a source of discomfort for him.
"That was my ex-wife's idea to be honest," he told Andy. "It kinda turned into a little bit of a circus, which I wasn't terribly fond of because by default I'm quite a private person."
The singer says he was willing to do it, however, for Heidi.
But then you're married and you become a team player, and you understand that each of you have different lives, and you do whatever you can to support your partner's life," Seal continued.
"But the renewing of the vows," he explained. "I don't know how necessary it was."
Still, he said, "You do things for the greater good, and the greater good in our case was always the family. So, whatever the family needed or felt that they needed, you did, and you supported it."
Heidi and Seal, who have four kids together, have remained mostly amicable since their split three years ago, and in August, the 42-year-old had only kind words for her ex and his new flame, Erica Packer.
"Co-parenting is very important and he is a great man," Klum told ET at the time. "She seems lovely and I wish him all the best."
Meanwhile, Heidi has ruled out marriage in her future, telling ET in September that she's not planning any more trips down the aisle.
"I won't get married again," Klum said decisively. "People always write all these crazy things, but it's not all true. Don't always believe what you read in the paper!"
