Seal is set to adopt wife Heidi Klum's 5-year-old daughter Leni before Christmas.
Heidi's father Guenther said:
"Heidi, Seal and the kids have always been a happy family - in everyday life and in their hearts. Then they should also be happy on paper."
The singer, who has three other children with Klum, has already started the legal proceedings.
Aww...one big happy fam!
