To celebrate their fifth anniversary,Â Project Runway‘s hostÂ Heidi Klum and her singer husband, Seal, are slated to renew their wedding vows this weekend. It’s a tradition the couple continues every year in a unique way to mark their wedding anniversary. Klum opens up about this year’s celebration, why they do it, and what the couple’s four kids think about it…
It’s been five years of marriage forÂ Project Runway‘s hostÂ Heidi Klum and her rocker husband, Seal, and the couple are ready to publicly declare their love for one another in yet another lavish wedding vow renewal. Since their wedding in 2005, the husband-and-wife have made it an annual tradition to celebrate their anniversary in style, renewing their vows each year with a uniquely themed ceremony. This year all of the guests will be wearing wedding dresses and tuxedos.
“We love to renew our vows. It’s our time â€“ a lovely family time. It’s about remembering this moment of love we gave to each other and reinforcing it,”Â Heidi Klum says. Her husband Seal adds,Â ”Each year, Heidi and I get remarried. It’s a great party, but for about an hour, we go off on our own down to a private beach. We sit there with the kids and read vows to each other as the sun sets. It’s a very special moment to us.”
TheÂ Project Runway host says the vow renewal isn’t simply for she and her husband, but for their four kids (Leni, 6, Henry, 4, Johan, 3, and Lou, 7 months) as well.Â ”It’s so special to us, something we love and something our children have gotten accustomed to,” Klum says. “It’s like, ‘Hey, Mom and Dad love each other and they get married every year!’”
Of course it helps that she’s still madly in love with her husband after all these years. About Seal,Â Heidi Klum says,Â ”I don’t know why I got so lucky. I have to pinch myself often and say, ‘Is this just a dream?’ Not only do I love my husband for the obvious reasons (ahem, his sex appeal), but also he is one of the kindest, most loving men I have ever met.Â He is sexy to me because he is fearless and not afraid to show his emotions. He is a supersexy, hot kisser and â€¦ he is sexy to me because he can be singing in front of 25,000 people one minute and, the next, be changing our daughter’s diaper.”
