Though having been married to Seal, born Sealhenry Olusegun Olumide Samuel, since May 2005, it wasn't until Monday, October 5 that Heidi Klum filed legal papers to adopt his last name. According to an exclusive report by TMZ, the very pregnant supermodel filed the documents in L.A. County Superior Court.
Her request is yet to be made official. Another hearing for the matter is set for November 20 later this year. Neither Klum nor Seal has addressed the report though.
Heidi Klum and Seal are currently waiting in anticipation for the birth of their third child, who is expected to join older brothers Henry Gunther Ademola Dashtu Samuel and Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel in fall.
The musician confirmed during his show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City on April 16 that Heidi is pregnant with another baby. Then during his appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in early May he publicly revealed the upcoming baby will be a girl. Heidi herself also has another daughter, named Helene "Leni" Klum, whom she has with former flame Flavio Briatore.
