16-Year-Old Heidi Klum’s Daughter Makes Model Debut: “Couldn’t Have Wished for a Better Start”

fr24news– Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni recently looked completely in her element, in a model debut for the ages.

Leni – née Hélène – is the eldest daughter of Klum and singer Seal, adopted by the former couple in 2009.

But despite the lack of biological DNA shared with her adoptive mother, many consider the 16-year-old to be a much younger clone of the 47-year-old “Project Runway” star.

Klum joined Leni on the January / February cover of Vogue Germany. While Leni thanked Klum in an Instagram post, writing that she “couldn’t have dreamed of a better start,” Klum avoided the spotlight this time around so her daughter could shine.

“Leni has seen a lot of people before and been backstage from a young age,” Klum told the fashion publication of the cover. “I always find it nice when she accompanies me to work. And it is a strange feeling, but very pleasant, that it is the opposite today: I accompany my daughter to work, not the other way around.

In the animated cover, Klum couldn’t help but plant a kiss on his daughter’s cheek as Leni struck a stimulating pose while donning a green top, hot pink oversized pants and an oversized blue blazer affixed to her shirt.

Klum played on Leni’s stylish outfit by choosing to wear a contrasting jumpsuit and paired blue pants with the pink blazer.

Mother and daughter also sported straight blonde and brunette locks.

Last week, in a bit of foreshadowing, Klum opened up about his daughter’s desire to get into TV modeling and animation.

“She kinda comes [on set] and watch and learn not only what I’m doing but what all the different people are doing on a TV. I think it’s very interesting for her, ”the“ Germany’s Next Top Model ”host told People magazine.

Klum added, “When you’re that age you’re still trying to figure out who you are, what you want to be and see for the first time what all those different jobs are to do a TV show. She wants to do what I do.

Judge America’s Got Talent said she was ready for Leni to mingle with modeling and accommodation if she found the engine.

“Who knows, maybe in five years, when I won’t be hosting the show anymore, it might be like Leni Klum’s ‘Germany’s Next Top Model’ instead of Heidi Klum,” she said. People joked, adding: “[Leni] kind of plays with that idea.

Klum had always kept her daughters private near the vest, pointing out that since Leni was 16 and driving, the teen should have some freedom.

“She’s pretty old now,” Heidi told the outlet. “I always thought she was too young. We have always decided to keep children out of the public eye. But she drives a car now, she’s 16, so I thought if you can do that you can also model now if that’s what you want to do.

Leni told Vogue Germany that she actually could have made her modeling debut three years ago when clothing brand Brandy Melville gave Leni her first gig at the age of 13.

“At the time, I begged mom, but no luck!” Leni said. “I understand now that it would have been too soon.”
