The foursome were also joined by another person, who presumably was showing the family around apartments in Berlin.

Heidi and her family have been making the most of their stay in the German capital and were spotted on Thursday night enjoying dinner out.

It comes after the model filed a request for an emergency court hearing in August, seeking to force her ex-husband Seal to allow her to take their children to Germany with her in October.

According to reports at the time, it appeared Heidi was able to reach an agreement with the British musician without needing a judge to rule on the matter.

While he expressed concerns about the kids travelling to Europe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Seal has now agreed to allow Heidi to take them with her, People reported at the time.

In return, Seal will get expanded visitation with the children both before they leave and upon their return, according to the publication, as well as being able to see them while they are in Germany if he so wishes.

Heidi is going to Germany to film a new season of the country’s Next Top Model reality show.

In her previous court filing, she explained that the series is normally filmed in the USA but the German cast and crew are not permitted currently to enter America due to the pandemic.

Heidi and Seal, 57, who married in 2005 and finalised their divorce in 2014, share joint legal and physical custody of biological children Henry, 15, Johan, 13, and Lou, 11. He adopted Heidi’s 16-year-old daughter Leni. 

The model married German guitarist Tom Kaulitz in 2019.

In legal documents obtained by TheBlast.com on August 20, Heidi explained that the children did not want to be parted from her for the three-and-a-half months she’s contracted to be in Germany but that Seal had not signed off on the trip.

Instead, she stated, he preferred the children to remain in Los Angeles, where he also resides.

The Kiss From A Rose hitmaker – real name Henry Samuel – has previously permitted the kids to travel with their famous mother, but after initially agreeing in April to the fall trip to Germany, Heidi said he changed his mind.

She explained: ‘My work in television supports our family. Neither Henry (Seal) nor I pay child support to one another, and because our children are with me the vast majority of the time, I take on a larger portion of their regular expenses.

‘I am well aware of all the necessary precautions associated with the Covid-19 virus, and would never put our children at risk. I have taken all the precautions for Germany the same way I do in the US.’

In his own legal filing, Seal responded that he was suspicious of his ex’s motives. 

‘Heidi is a celebrity and a German national and I am concerned that if she is allowed to take the children to Germany, she may unilaterally decide not to return them to the United States,’ Seal said.

He also stated: ‘Notwithstanding Heidi’s request, if granted, could in effect move the children away from me and their home here in Los Angeles to Germany for what could be an indefinite period of time given the uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19 on this country’s and Germany’s travel restrictions which could change at any time and prevent the children from leaving Germany or entering the United States.’

The new agreement he has reached with Klum states that should the coronavirus crisis escalate to the point where the US decides to shut down its borders, Heidi must ‘immediately make arrangements in an effort to return home with the children before the borders close.’
