Who is Helene Boshoven Samuel?
Helene Boshoven Samuel, born on the 4th of May, 2004, is the daughter of German-American supermodel Heidi Klum and Italian businessman, Flavio Briatore, and the adoptive daughter of British singer, Seal.
Helene Boshoven Samuel’s Early Life
Born in New York City, Samuel’s parents met in 2002, back when Briatore was the manager of the Renault F1 team and Klum was just fresh from her divorce from stylist Ric Pipino. After a few months dating, in December 2003 Klum announced that she was pregnant.
Unfortunately Klum and Briatore decided to go their separate ways before Samuel was born. Klum was living in Los Angeles in the United States while Briatore was kept in London due to his own work; this separation eventually led to their break up. A few months later, Klum met British singer Henry Olusegun Adebola Samuel, more popularly known as Seal. The two saw each other first at an awards dinner in London, and a few weeks later bumped into each other in a gym in New York. Five weeks later after they first started dating, Klum told Seal about her pregnancy. Seal decided to take care of and shoulder the responsibility for Klum’s unborn child.
In May 4, 2004, Helene Boshoven Samuel was born and a year later, Klum and Seal tied the knot after a dramatic proposal 14,000 feet up on a glacier in British Columbia.
After years of talking on the phone for two hours, Briatore decided that it wasn’t enough for Helena. Klum, Seal, and Briatore all agreed that Helena needed a good father figure in her life, and Seal would be the best person for it. In 2009, Seal legally adopted Helena to be his daughter and she officially used the last name Samuel from then on.
