After her birth, Helena Boshoven Samuel was raised by her mother and had very less contact with her father. Meanwhile, when she was just a year old, her mother started dating Seal, a British singer who ultimately adopted her in December 2009.

As her biological father, Flavio was not able to provide her with all the time a father should have; Seal decided to take her under his wing and take care of her as his own daughter.
