KISSED BY A ROSE: Say 'Cheese'? No, thanks. Seal and Heidi would rather smooch for the camera.

AS Valentine's Day approaches, we caught up with our favorite doting husband and proud papa to find out what he loves most about his supermodel wife, where they first met, which song they dance to every morning - and how they'll spend their special day.

It's been three years since you met your wife. Do you remember the moment you saw her for the first time?

I was at an award ceremony in London when this regal-looking woman walked in. I didn't know who she was at the time, but I remember thinking, "Wow! This woman has the kindest, most radiant smile I've ever seen. The man who has this woman's heart must be the luckiest guy in the world."

What was the first thing that attracted you to her?

The first thing that attracted me to my wife is pretty much the same thing that I most love about her today - her kind heart.

Do the two of you have any weekend rituals?

We have rituals, but they aren't necessarily specific to weekends. We dance almost every morning - usually to German kid songs - with the whole family. When Grandma is in town, we eat apple pancakes for breakfast. Both Heidi and myself sing the same lullaby to Leni, Henry - and now Johan - each night, "Hushaby Mountain." It's their favorite. Our new thing we love to do together is yoga, for the past four weeks at 9 a.m. every morning.

"I remember thinking, 'Wow! The man who has this woman's heart must be the luckiest guy in the world.'"
What is your idea of the perfect Valentine's Day?

Our idea of the perfect Valentine's Day is in bed - with no interruptions from anyone!

What about your favorite New York restaurants. Do you have a special date spot?

Our favorite New York City spots are Omen, Mr. Chow and our good friend Italo's Italian home cuisine.

What do you miss most about each other when you're apart?

When we are apart, we miss everything about each other, but most of all our friendship.

Seal's song "A Father's Way" (from the film "The Pursuit of Happyness") was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2007 Golden Globe Awards.
