Kiss From A Rose singer Seal has admitted that his love for his estranged wife Heidi Klum has "not waned one iota".
A week after the couple announced they were planning to separate, the British singer said he still loved the supermodel "with all my heart".
But in a candid interview with Piers Morgan, the 48-year-old said he did not know whether the couple would be able to resolve their differences and get back together.
"My love for her has not waned one iota," he said on the CNN talk show. "I love her with all my heart. How can you not love somebody that you have just spent eight years with? Is it irreparable? You can never say never."
He added: "This is not a charade. We have problems, we have issues but to our credit we have always been able to talk about them. Whether we get back together or not, it may happen, I can't speak for her. Would I like it to? I don't know at this point to be honest. If it were that easy, if there weren't problems , we would still be together, that is the reality."
Seal and Klum, 38, have been married for almost seven years and have four children together, including the model's daughter from a previous relationship.
The couple married on a beach in Mexico in May 2005 shortly after she announced she was pregnant with their son Henry.
The Grammy award-winning singer, whose real name is Seal Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel, got his big break singing on Adamski's 1990 number one hit, Killer. His third single in his own name, Kiss From A Rose, was a worldwide smash and won two Grammy awards.
German-born Klum made millions modelling lingerie for Victoria's Secret and has also branched out into the world of reality television, hosting and producing Project Runway which finds new design talent.
The couple, who were thought to have one of the showbiz world's most solid marriages, famously renewed their vows on every wedding anniversary.
