So it looks like the reports that Heidi Klum and Seal had welcomed their newest child into the world last Friday were only half-mistaken. The name of the baby, Lou Solula Samuel, was correct, but they were just a few hours early in announcing the news. Seal himself has confirmed the happy news in a statement released to OK!.

“It’s difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children. Anyone who has a family will tell you this. Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all of your heart, how then can one possibly find more heart with which to love another? On Friday October 9 2009 at 7:46pm, the answer to this question came in the form of our fourth child and second daughter. Lou Sulola Samuel was born and from the moment she looked into both of our eyes it was endless love at first sight. She is beautiful beyond words and we are happy that she chose us to watch her grow over the coming years. “–Seal

One thing that wasn’t a surprise was the Lou would be a girl; Seal slipped up and revealed the baby’s sex to Oprah Winfrey in May.

This is the fourth child for Heidi, she and Seal are the proud parents of Henry, Johan, and Leni, Heidi’s daughter from a previous relationship.

Seal also spilled the beans early on the pregnancy, as Heidi said, “It kind of came out faster than I wanted it to. My husband kind of surprised me and everybody at one of his concerts. He was just on tour so he kind of told everybody. He’s allowed to obviously. We’re very excited.”
