While reflecting on her past relationship, the 48-year-old supermodel said they renewed their vows in front of their loved ones every year.
‘I think I got married eight times to Seal,’ she recalled to the outlet. ‘I thought it would be kind of, like, fun. I thought it would be a fest of love.’

She added: ‘But you know, that doesn’t work either. I tried, you can’t say I didn’t try!’
While her best efforts were ‘really not working’ with the singer-songwriter, 58, she reiterated she ‘tried’ until they ended up filing for divorce.
The former couple are still in each other’s lives as they share four children Leni, 17, Henry, 15, Johan, 14, and Lou, 11.
He also adopted Klum’s eldest daughter Leni, when she was five years old.
The teen’s biological father is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.
Speaking of her co-parenting with Seal, Klum said ‘it could be easier sometimes, but everyone is healthy and that’s the most important thing.

‘Everything else can be figured out,’ Klum, who wed Tom Kaulitz in 2019, concluded on the subject.
Her interview comes less than two months after Seal said that he has ‘never had teamwork’ when it comes to co-parenting with Klum.
The performer said that while co-parenting can work wonders when the parents are on the same page, they have never been able to work together.
‘It can be challenging. It requires teamwork. If you are a team, if both parents are a team, then it’s really easy and that’s not a real challenge at all… But you have to be a team. And if you’re not a team, then it can all fall to pieces,’ Seal told Us Weekly.
Seal and Heidi split in 2012 and finalized their divorce in 2014 and last year hit a bumpy road when she wanted to take their children to Germany for filming, yet he objected however Heidi then triumphed in an emergency court hearing.

Heidi filed for an emergency court hearing to seek permission to take all four of their children with her to film Germany’s Next Top Model, and Seal initially hit back amid fears of his children being exposed to COVID-19.
The couple eventually reached a custody agreement for Heidi to travel with the children, but Seal was given ‘expanded time’ with them before and after they went.
At the time of the court hearing, their eldest daughter Leni also submitted a declaration on behalf of herself and her siblings.
She wrote: ‘This is hard because I love both of my parents, but I feel like I need to speak up. I understand that my siblings are too young to speak to the judge, so I am happy to speak for all of us.

‘My mom needs to film in Germany for a few months and my siblings and I want to go with her. So far, my dad is not allowing us to go, though we have tried to tell him our reasons why we want to.’
Leni explained going to Europe would be an ‘amazing opportunity’ and would also allow her and her siblings to see their grandparents, while her younger siblings are ‘really upset’ and ‘frightened’ at the thought of being away from their mother.
Seal also stated to Us Weekly that he isn’t happy about his daughter Leni’s modeling ambitions.

He admitted seeing his eldest child follow in her mom’s footsteps wouldn’t have been his first choice of career for her because it ‘seldom’ ends in happiness.
He said: ‘That’s a precarious road to take.’ But his kids are ‘just not all that impressed’ by his own career. He told the outlet: ‘We never really talk about my music at all.’
The singer doesn’t think his kids have to face many ‘challenges’ in their lives as they have a ‘nice house,’ ‘don’t have to worry about food on the table,’ and ‘have the benefit of a great education.’
