After six years of marriage, the estranged couple released a joint statement, reading, "While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate. 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. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition. We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our children¹s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy."
Klum officially filed for divorce in April. The two have four children together including Klum's seven-year-old daughter from a previous relationship whom Seal adopted.
