cnn ^

Posted on 01/23/2012 3:17:20 AM PST by Perdogg

Pop star Seal and supermodel Heidi Klum have decided to split, the two said in statements released by their publicists.

"While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate," the statements said. "We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart."

Seal and Klum have four children together -- Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou.

It's too bad. 7 years is a long time in Hollywood land but it is still too short.

If that is a picture of Heidi Klum, Seal, and their daughter, I think I may see a reason why they separated. Usually, the children of Africans are considerably darker. (Seal’s mother is Nigerian, making Seal a true African.)

Other than “Kiss From a Rose”, I am not familiar with Seal’s work.

Seal sang “Kiss From a Rose.” You may have heard that one, if you listen to soft rock.

I don’t know about Heidi Klum, but I’ve heard the name.

No real reason to know. Heidi Klum is a model (born German, now an American citizen) who is now into fashion and is the host of a reality cable TV show featuring amateur fashion designers. Seal (which is his real first name) is a British-born R&B singer.

If Klum or Seal are interviewed in TV, they appear intelligent. Of course, I've never heard them asked about the neutrino theory of stellar collapse in type 2 supernovae.

Oh. Oh. I know about the fashion show because it gave the world the ubiquitous Tim "Make it Work" Gunn. He's everywhere.

I once saw an interview with Klum and she was asked how she met Seal. She replied “Well, I was out clubbing ...”

Or maybe that was part of someone else’s comedy routine. I forget.

The child in the picture is Heidi Klum’s daughter from her earlier marriage, and is not biologically related to Seal.

A very old photo, then. After 7 years you’d expect a bit more of a tan to their children.

Klum is a former uber-model and now a host on Project Runway (I am only aware of the second fact because my teen daughters watched the show. Honest!)

If there were but one genetic loci where skin color was determined then one might speak of the allele (or variation)for dark skin being “dominant” to a “recessive” allele for light skin - but it is more complex than that.

Let us assume there are 10 genetic loci that largely determine skin color and they are either “off” (light skin) or “on” (dark skin)- then the blackest person you ever saw has around 18 out of 20 “on” (each loci has two copies) and the whitest non albino white person you ever saw has maybe 4 out of 20 “on”.

If these two people had a child they would have an average of about 11 out of 20 “on” and would be more brown than black or white.

Also just by random assortment two people with only 4 out of 20 loci “on” could have a child with 8/20 or as few as 1/20 - depending upon which “on” loci they shared in common.

That explains why children from the same parents can often have very different skin color.

This breakup does not surprise me at all. In fact, a couple like this one, which is always in the media talking about “how great” their marriage is, and renewing their wedding vows annually, is doomed for failure. Any couple that tells me that they don’t argue or fight in their relationship is living on another planet.

I think that’s heidi’s daughter from her relationship with an Italian businessman, prior to her relationship with Seal.

Klums oldest daughter is not his biologically. The other 3 children are darker, I assume that pic is old.

Yes, I am embarrassed I know this :)

Usually, the children of Africans are considerably darker.

It might be that that's less pronounced with seriously blonde Nordic types. A black friend of mine is married to a Swedish woman. Their three kids look like lightly tanned Swedes.

I'm assuming that's a cultural reference to Project Runway. I have to plead ignorance; PR's one of those topics that falls into my 'shallow knowledge' category. It's a rather large category.

Norm Abram's building a four-story warehouse to store my shallow knowledge next season on New Yankee Workshop (I watched it back when he had a workshop similar to mine; now he has a power box-joint cutter for poplar drawer left sides, which sits next to his power box-joint cutter for birch drawer right sides).

I'm going to guess that "Project Runway" is NOT a show about renovating airports for general aviation... Heck, a show like that might be kind of interesting!

Skin color, as someone pointed out in an earlier post, results from the contribution of more than one gene. I remember reading an article by a black ABC news anchor, who said that she had to produce ID in the hospital to see her own daughter--because the child had blond hair and blue eyes, and the anchor was fairly dark. But in general, a child's skin color is somewhere between his/her parent's colors.
