How does a mom manage to produce a hit television show, model skimpy lingerie and potty-train a 2-year-old? Heidi says it's all about balance.

"I try not to travel that much anymore," she says. "A lot of the people that I'm working with, they're really great and they come to me most of the time. They love coming to California because the weather is great, and it's a nice excuse for them to leave their office and shoot somewhere else. I'm very fortunate."

For this celebrity couple, living in California has its ups and downs. Heidi and Seal can spend more quality time with their children, but they also have to spend more time dealing with the paparazzi. Instead of getting angry at photographers, Seal tries to keep things in perspective.

"It's mildly annoying, but when you look at the grand scheme of things, I have an amazing wife, three healthy, amazing children, a job that I love doing," he says. "If [that means] dealing with kind of the trappings of that, or of the occupational hazards, let's say, that's a really small price to pay."

To have a happy life, Seal says there's only one thing a man needs…a happy wife! "In a funny kind of way, I learned that from my father, because my father and my mother had a very strange relationship growing up," he says. "It wasn't the most functional relationship, so I guess they kind of led by example. They showed me the things that I shouldn't really do."

No matter how bad things got at home, Seal always envisioned a better life for himself. "I was always the kid in the back of the class … staring out the window and daydreaming about this ideal life that I didn't have at home."
