Just weeks after announcing they are expecting, Seal tells Oprah the new baby will be a girl.
Three weeks ago, while performing at Radio City Music Hall, Seal made a big announcement about his family.
"[The] topic outside our hotel is, 'Is Heidi having another baby?'" he told the audience. "Heidi and I are having another baby!"
The music venue erupted in cheers. Celebrity blogs went nuts. And almost immediately, interviewers began asking: "Will it be a boy or a girl?"
"We'd be happy with either," Heidi told Us. "But it would be a lie if said we all weren't hoping for a girl —— especially Leni, because she would love to have a little sister."
Fortunately for Leni, 5, the time for hoping has already come to an end, and the time for celebrating has fully arrived. Because, as Seal just told Oprah on yesterday's episode of her show, he and Heidi are indeed expecting a girl. Oprah's Relationship Advice
"She can't keep a secret," Seal said of his wife, explaining that she was happy to have him share the news about the gender of their new baby on the show.
Seal also talked with Oprah about his and Heidi's fourth wedding anniversary, which, suitably, falls this year on Mother's Day. Mother's Day Wishlist
"We're going to get married again," he said. And while he doesn't know the theme for this year's renewal ceremony (an annual tradition for the couple), he expects that Heidi will pull out all the stops. "You know what my wife's like. She's always got some trick up her sleeve."
The couple's original wedding took place on a beach in Mexico on May 10, 2004, five months after Seal proposed to Heidi on Christmas Eve. The two met in 2003, when Heidi was newly single and pregnant with cheating ex-boyfriend Flavio Briatori's baby (Leni). Since then, they've added to the family twice, welcoming Henry, 3, and Johan, 2.
