heidi-klum-y-seal*Renewing vows is considered to be highly romantic for many couples…unless you’re Seal.

To hear the 52-year-old “Kiss From a Rose” singer tell it, it was something he just wasn’t “terribly fond of,” according to Page Six.

“That was my ex-wife’s idea, to be honest,” Seal said on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM show on Monday (Nov. 9) in regards to the annual renewal of vows he did with Heidi Klum. “It kind of turned into a circus, which I wasn’t terribly fond of.”

Seal’s comments come after he and Klum finalized their divorce in October 2014, two years after they split up. The couple, who were married in May 2005, are mother and father to four children.

In an interview with Redbook in 2010, Klum shared her thoughts on the annual vow renewal with Seal, saying, “It’s our time – a lovely family time. It’s about remembering this moment of love we gave to each other and reinforcing it.”

“It’s so special to us, something we love and something our children have gotten accustomed to,” she continued. “It’s like, ‘Hey, Mom and Dad love each other and they get married every year!’”

Although he considered the tradition as being “cool,” Seal pointed out that” it wasn’t necessary and that he’s “quite a private person.”

“But then you’re married and you become a team player and you understand that each of you have different lives, and you do whatever you can to support your partner’s life,” he added.
