Like mother, like daughter! Photographers caught up with Heidi Klum and her nearly ten-year-old daughter Helene headed to the Grove in Los Angeles earlier this month. Judging from their confident poses, both have their model walks down like seasoned pros.
The Project Runway host look chic in a black jacket and matching pants with stylish grey and white scarf. Little Leni, as she goes by, looks just as cool as mom in a navy blue jacket, jeans, and black boots.
Born in May 2004, Leni is Heidi’s first child. Her father is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, whom Heidi began dating in 2003. The following year, Heidi announced she was pregnant, and Leni arrived in the spring. However, the couple had already parted ways by that time with Heidi starting a relationship with musician Seal before Leni was born.
Seal officially adopted Leni in 2009 and is the father of her three half-siblings: brother Henry, born in 2005; brother Johan, born in 2006; and sister Lou, born in 2009.
Although Mama Heidi and Seal parted ways nearly two years ago, the musician reportedly remains a big part of Leni and her siblings’ lives. That’s good news, too. We have a feeling that once Leni starts dating, she’s going to need all the help she can get to keep her admirers at bay.
