Nigerian-born Henry Olumide Adeola Samuel known by his stage name Seal whisked his family away to Sardinia in Italy for their summer holidays this week.
But it appears the British Soul and R&B singer and songwriter is also privy to some downtime from his parental duties as he greeted a female friend onto his private yacht.
The stunning brunette has been named as Silvia, a reception assistant at the famous disco Billionaire in Porto Cervo.
All of Seal’s children, Leni, nine, Henry, seven, Johan, six and three-year-old Lou, had left the yacht for a day of watersports in the afternoon.
Meanwhile the four Grammy Awards winner with the hit “Kiss from a Rose” waited for Silvia, who works at the club owned by Flavio Briatore.
She arrived in a two-tone sea blue frilled mini dress, which accentuated her impeccably tanned and toned pins. The Italian beauty wore a pair of brown leather sandals embellished with jewels carried a cream and silver leather shoulder bag, while her long raven locks were left out and straight.
Seal however opted for far more casual attire in a long-sleeved white top and three-quarter length sweat pants.
When Silvia arrived Seal greeted her with a kiss and welcomed her inside.
Sylvia, according to reports, stayed on the boat for over an hour alone with Seal before he gave her a kiss goodbye.
She was seen stepping out, with her leather sandals in hand, and a little smile on her face. Seal then was seen joking with the Mediterranean beauty and made a peace sign with his fingers before she finally left.
In June, the family enjoyed a trip Down Under with Seal who had been in the country working on Australia’s version of The Voice.
Seal and Heidi, his ex-wife began dating in February 2004, shortly after she announced her pregnancy and end of her relationship with Flavio Briatore, former director of the Italian Renault Formula One racing team. Heidi gave birth to Leni in May 2004 with Seal at her side, and he officially adopted her in 2009.
The couple had children Henry, Johan and Lou together before announcing their separation in 2012 after nearly seven years of marriage.
Heidi is now dating her bodyguard-turned-boyfriend Martin Kristen. While her children have been away with their father, the couple have been getting some alone time and took a short getaway together in Bora, Bora, Tahiti.
