We have heard from Seal who has been open about his split from Heidi Klum but we haven’t heard much over the past few weeks from Heidi. We’ve seen some gorgeous happy family pictures, earlier in the week she was playing on the beach with her kids, but for the first time today we are hearing Heidi’s point of view, courtesy of ELLE magazine. Back in February when the news of the split first broke Heidi made a quick reference to it on her Twitter account, thanking her fans for their support, but today for the first time she has actually revealed details about the whole ordeal and how she has been feeling.
Heidi is on the cover of the April issue of ELLE and as usual, she looks beautiful. She really is a magnificent women, hence the success as a supermodel. In the ELLE issue next month there is an extensive interview with Heidi along with the photo shoot, and for the first time since their split she has revealed how it has been from her perspective.
“I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness — with you wanting it or not wanting it — is another tornado…But as hard as it is, so is life. And sometimes I think a curveball just comes at you. Instead of something straight that you catch, it hits you in the head from the side that you didn’t expect.”
When I read this it was clear to me that Heidi has been through a pretty intense ordeal, emotionally. The reference to a tornado… a curveball hitting her in the head. She also still sounds fairly affected by it all still, naturally. She also revealed that her and Seal kept troubles they were having in their marriage private, choosing to show the positive aspects to the public. This is actually similar to what Seal revealed a few weeks ago. He said that he felt obliged to give people a full picture when thing went south because they had given off the impression publicly that they had an “ideal relationship.” Heidi said the same thing here, she did say though that she doesn’t want to get into it now either.
“To the outside world, you don’t really share all the things that happen. You kind of share just the most amazing sides,” she explains. “But I don’t really want to get into any of that stuff. With my life, my family, my business — I want to go forward.People don’t need to know who did what…I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there.”
Heidi looks stunning and happy on the cover, which is such a relief to see. It is so good to see her smiling that gorgeous smile. She also looked very happy and relaxed hanging out on the beach with her kids earlier in the week, so it is great to see her this way.
“I’m a lioness. I have four cubs. I’m a mom. I want to take care of my kids and protect them,” she says. “I don’t want to talk about them, or him, or me.”
Heidi’s comments are honest and loving. I think her analogy being a lioness and there now to protect and care for her kids is a gorgeous image. There is no doubt that Heidi is just that, a real lioness. It is still so sad for us to hear about this couple splitting, so of course it must be so so much harder for them actually dealing with it. It sounds to me like things in their marriage weren’t always so wonderful, how they looked on the outside. They were definitely seen as the ideal Hollywood couple and always in love, but sadly, I don’t think that was always the case. Heidi says she just wants to focus on her family and move forward. Lets hope that she can do just that.
