Yesterday I tune in to watch Oprah Winfrey discuss power couples Seal and Heidi as well as Kay Milli and Stevie Wonder.

For his birthday present last year, Heidi reunited Seal with his foster family who raised him until the age of four.

"I'm sitting in the studio and all of a sudden I start streaming with tears because I'm looking and I'm going 'Oh my god, there's our son. He's just a little darker'.

"Our son Henry sits exactly like that," said the singer.

"You see a picture like that from 40 years ago and it triggers all these memories. I remember that exact jacket that I was wearing."

On the show, the singer then watched a film the Scoolings had made for him.

"Wherever we went, he was always there," HiIlary said in the film.

"He was just like a brother to us and that was it. He was another addition to our family.

"We never treated him any different to anybody else."

And in related news, Heidi revealed the moment she fell for Seal:
"I met him in a hotel lobby in New York City and he came in just from the gym and I was sitting there and I was, like, wow," Klum tells Oprah Winfrey on her show's Superstar Couples episode set to air Thursday.

Wow, as in Seal was wearing bicycle shorts.

"And I pretty much saw everything," says Klum. "The whole package."

hmmm....i read he had a rough upbringing with his parents but never knew he's fostered. I wonder what's up with his parents though.

I have that particular show recorded, I'm yet to watch it. I just like the way that one tear dropped from his eyes when I saw the preview. He definitely has been through some stuff

I thought he would talk a little bit about his biological parents but Heidi stressed upon how he never had any childhood/baby pictures of himself. This is the reason why Heidi went out to place an AD in a newspaper asking for Seal's foster family.

You have to watch the show. Oprah discuss Seal and Heidi for a good 28 minutes. Seal and Heidi even provide behind-the-scenes footage.

That tear drop was when Seal found out what Heidi did for me. Being the emotional person I am, I cried too.

Okay now i am curious about Seals upbringing...

His parents in naija and all that.

His mother died in Naija some years back, and cursed her son to her grave cause he never gave her a penny.

NOw seeing this...there must be more to the story...
