Thirty-two year-old German supermodel, author, Emmy-nominated Project Runway executive producer and entrepreneur, Heidi Klum has given her handsome husband, forty-two year-old multi-Grammy award-winning artist, Seal a son. Klum reportedly gave birth to a healthy baby boy late on Monday evening, September 12th, 2005. On Wednesday on Klum's German-language Web site, the couple formerly announced their son's birth.

His name? Henry Guenther Ademola Dashtu Samuel.

Like father like son.

Seal.2005.jpgSeal's full name is Sealhenry Olusegun Olumide Samuel.

Heidi's father and manager is Guenther Klum.

Henry Guenther Ademola Dashtu Samuel is the couple's first child together.

Heidi also has a sixteen-month-old daughter, Leni, from her previous relationship with Formula One manager Flavio Briatore. Seal took on the role of father to Leni early on in his relationship with Heidi. He is often heard calling Leni his own.

In addition, he dedicated his latest album, Best: 1991-2004, to "my daughter Leni."

Seal was at his wife's side in a Los Angeles hospital on Monday when their son was born.

One source said: "Seal looked like every other dad-to-be in the hospital -- both excited and nervous."

Heidi.Klum.topless.jpgA spokesman said Heidi still plans to attend this Sunday's Academy of Television Arts & Sciences "Emmy" Awards in Hollywood.

He added: "Hopefully she will be ready."

Klum is nominated as an executive producer for Outstanding Reality/Competition Program for the reality design show "Project Runway."

On Seal's site,, his live tour dates currently have not changed.

In an April press release, Seal's management stated:

Seal IV contains eleven gorgeous songs written or co-written by SEAL, including the striking hit single "Waiting For You" and the new smash "Love's Divine."

Produced by Trevor Horn (with co-production by Mark Batson on six tracks), the DVD-A experience refines the extraordinary reunion of one of the most successful studio collaborations in recent musical memory. Together, Seal and Horn have accounted for worldwide album sales of over twelve million units, as well as such era-defining hits as "Crazy," "Prayer For The Dying" and "Kiss From A Rose," the 1996 Grammy winner for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year. As a result of the re-teaming, SEAL IV has sprinted to 2.5 million sales worldwide.

The Deluxe DVD-A showcases these collaborators in their finest form, and in the truest sound available today high-resolution surround-sound mixes of the full album, as well as the music videos of "Love's Divine," which is currently in heavy rotation on VH1, the debut single "Waiting For You," and the high energy track "Get It Together."

A portion of proceeds from tickets sold for the tour will be donated directly to Childhelp USA, one of the largest and oldest national non-profits dedicated to the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect. The organization's programs provide for the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of abused and neglected children.

Childhelp USA co-founders and Silence Broken co-authors Sara O'Meara and Yvonne Fedderson (the girlfriends of David and Ricky on the hit TV show The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet) have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Peace Prize winner will be selected in October 2005; the award will be presented December 10th in Oslo, Norway.

In addition to Seal, other "rugged elegant" celebrity Childhelp USA ambassadors include: Clint & Lisa Hartman Black, Glenn Frey, Kathie Lee Gifford, Amy Grant, Catherine Oxenburg, Kathleen Turner, Steve & Barbara Young - to name just a few.

One of the world's most "rugged elegant" couples, Seal and Klum were married on a Mexican beach at the luxury resort Cuixmala in May.

The previous May, after Heidi's daughter Leni was born, Klum wrote to her fans:

For a mother it is the most wonderful thing to hold a healthy child in her arms. And this feeling of happiness becomes nearly indescribable if there is also an endless variety of congratulations, calls, fax, mails and presents.

I want to say thank you very much to all of you for everything you did.

With love, Heidi.

On Klum's German site, she wrote today:

Heidi und Seal sind stolz die Geburt ihres ZWEITEN Kindes zu verkunden.

Henry, Gunther, Ademola, Dashtu Samuel ist am Montag dem 12.September 05 um 19 Uhr 20 mit einem Gewicht von 3,66 kg und einer Grosse von 53 cm in L.A. geboren.

Einer unserer grossten Momente bisher war, als Leni ihren kleinen Bruder mehrfach auf den Kopf kusste.

Leni hat sich schon langer auf ihren kleinen Bruder vorbereitet indem sie immer auf Mamas Bauch mit den Worten zeigte: Baby, Baby.

My German is twenty years rusty, but in addition to the baby's name, weight and time of birth, Heidi writes:

One of our greatest moments so far was when Leni kissed her little brother many times on the head.

To see the English version of Heidi's site, go to:

On Seal's Web site, he announced to his fans, "Dashtu has landed!"

Seal.Heidi.Samuel.jpgSeal wrote on Wednesday, September 14th:

Heidi and I are proud to announce the arrival of our SECOND child together.

Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, arrived on Monday September 12th 2005 at 7:20PM. Weight on arrival was 8lbs 0.9oz. He measures 21 inches long.

Our most treasured moment so far was watching big sister Leni kissing Henry repeatedly on the head.

She had been preparing for his arrival for quite some time pointing to Heidi's stomach every morning saying the words "Baby, baby."

Congratulations Heidi, Seal and Leni!

Seal, we look forward to celebrating with you in spirit when we attend one of your upcoming Northern California concerts.

Inspire & Be Inspired.

Here's to healthy, adventuresome, soulful, "the birth of one's legacy" living!
