Born Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel on February 19, 1963, in London, England, Seal was first recognized by the music industry for his vocal work on Adamski's 1990 single "Killer," which eventually led him to sign with ZTT Records.
A year later, Seal released his self-titled debut studio album to positive reviews, resulting in him taking home the 1992 Brit Award for Best British Album and officially putting him on the international music map.
Seal's follow-up self-titled album found similar success when it was released in 1994, earning him two honors for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 38th Grammy Awards.
The rising star continued to put out well-received work, including his next albums Human Being (1998), Togetherland (2001) and Seal IV (2003) before reaching stardom with the release of System in 2007, which won him a Grammy nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance ("Amazing").
The Grammy Award-winning artist has since released Soul (2008), Commitment (2010) and Soul 2 (2011).
Seal Ex-Wife, Girlfriend & Dating History Timeline
1996 - October 1996
Seal and Tyra Banks secretly dated in 1996, making only one appearance together as an official couple at the Essence Awards. The romance eventually came to an end in October 1996.
1997 - 2003
Seal developed a long-term romance with Tatjana Patitz, but kept the relationship out of the media (which is why there is little information to go on).
February 2004 - January 2012
Seal began dating German supermodel Heidi Klum in February 2004, shortly after she announced she was pregnant and ended her relationship with the kid's daddy Flavio Briatore. Seal was present when Heidi welcomed her daughter Helen "Leni" Klum (5 May 2004), who he later legally adopted in 2009.
On December 23, 2004, Seal proposed to Heidi in a quinzee he had formed atop a glacier in British Columbia, which led to the happy couple walking down the aisle on May 10, 2005, near his Costa Careyes home.
In late January 2012, however, the couple announced they were getting a divorce after 7 years of marriage.
February 2013 - Present
Rumors that Seal was dating actress Erin Cahill erupted after the two were seen on a lunch date on February 27, 2013. Both sides have yet to address the gossip.
