SEAL THE DEAL
It's getting serious! The PDA-happy pair enjoy a major lip-lock at the September 2004 World Music Awards afterparty, just three months before Seal pops the question. "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," he told PEOPLE.

Talk about making beautiful music together! Klum and Seal pair up at the November 2007 Victoria's Secret fashion show, where they perform "Wedding Day," a song he wrote about their May 2005 nuptials. "Family, my wife and children, that's my reason for being," he said of the tune. "I am finally in a content and happy place to the point where I feel like I need to sing about it."

KISS AND TELL
Seal steals a smooch at the September 2011 Emmys. "He is a supersexy, hot kisser," Klum said of her husband, with whom she renewed vows every year. "It's so special to us, something we love and something our children have gotten accustomed to," she said of the tradition. "It's like, 'Hey, Mom and Dad love each other and they get married every year!'"
