Heidi Klum and Seal Marry in Mexico

Posted on

Supermodel Heidi Klum and British singer Seal have gotten married, PEOPLE has confirmed. The couple, who got engaged just before Christmas, wed on a beach in Mexico. They are expecting their first child together in the fall.

The low-key ceremony was conducted in front of 40 guests near Seal’s home on Mexico’s luxurious Costa Careyes. Klum wore a Vera Wang ivory chantilly lace gown with an empire waist. The cake served at the reception at Seal’s home was topped with a miniature Seal in a tux and Klum in a gown.

Klum, 31, has a one-year-old daughter, Leni, whose father is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. But from the beginning of Seal and Klum’s romance in February 2004, the singer has acted like a father to Leni. He celebrated with champagne at the New York City hospital where Klum gave birth last May, and dedicated his latest album, Best: 1991-2004, first to “my daughter Leni,” then to Klum and her parents.

A pal told PEOPLE: “He is crazy about Leni, he is always carrying her around. He is the first one to change a diaper.”

“What I love most about fatherhood,” Seal, 42, said, is “the opportunity to be a part of the development process of a new life.”

He asked Klum to marry him at a ski resort in western Canada. “I proposed on Dec. 23 at 14,000 feet in Whistler, B.C., in uncharted terrain on a glacier, in a natural snow cave, in an igloo built just for the moment,” Seal told PEOPLE at the time. The German supermodel called the proposal: “a once-in-a-lifetime event.”
