Leni Samuel Goes Topless With Mom Heidi Klum On The Beach! At Age 7, Is She Too Old To Be Topless?

Mon, August 15, 2011 10:55am EDT by 15 Comments

Obviously, Heidi doesn’t think age matters, but is 7-year-old Leni a little too old to go topless in front of her parents and siblings?

We get it, babies love to run around nude on the beach — take Gisele Bundchen‘s son Benjamin Brady for example. But, at seven years old, should Leni cover up?

We here at HollyBaby.com were surprised when we heard the news that padded bikinis were on sale in stores like Abercrombie and Hollister — and they were made for girls as young as six!

Yet, Heidi Klum and hubby Seal let their 7-year-old daughter Leni run around topless alongside her model mama, who stripped down in front of her kids at Hotel Cala di Volpe in Porto Cervo, Italy this weekend! So what’s worse, a padded top or no top at all?

Now we get the whole nudity thing, especially in a European country like Italy, but Leni has younger brothers — Henry, 5, and Johan, 4. Don’t you think they know what “boobies” are? It must be a little awkward for them to not only see their mommy topless, but their older sister!

We think after this year, Leni should maybe start covering up. Then again, it doesn’t seem like Heidi minds one bit! What’s your view on this, HollyMoms? Would you let your 7-year-old daughter go topless?

Bloody Brits are so uptight about who is uptight! In the first place most americans are not “shocked” or “offended” by little girls going topless, most of us have seen this. secondly most of us are not shocked by adult women being topless either, american guys love boobies (maybe that is why brit police are called bobbys), anyhow i love this picture; Shaz if you need a hobby that bad try plucking clover or taking labels off of books.

Well, don´t forget that Heidi Klum is from Germany!! Over here going topless when at the beach/pool in summer is obviously a lot more normal than in the US…. this wouldn´t even be a matter of discussion…. Mom and child (who cares about the gender at age 7!) are going for a swim, so what? ;)

If Heidi and her daughter are at a beach where it’s ok to go topless, then they can go topless. However, I don’t think pictures of Heidi’s topless daughter should be plastered on this website. It is out of context and not appropriate.

I think she needs to be covered up…even if it is commonplace for 7 year old girls to wander around topless on the beach in Europe…Heidi is in the lime light. It’s inevitable that pictures are going to be taken. I wouldn’t worry what the little brothers are thinking…I’d be more concerned about what any given number of pervy men think who have easy access to this photo. Heidi has a right to go topless if she wants–she’s an adult and can make her own decisions. She also can defend herself. A 7 year old girl can’t. I just don’t think this sends a good message.

Topless is NORM for most beaches of the Mediterranian!! Sardinia is the playground for Europeans in the summer! HollyBaby journalists need to take the stick out of their a*s! The only ones who are sexualizing Heidi & her kids are uptight a#sholes writing these stupid articles!

I think it is too old. There are just way to many sick perverted people in the world. And it is our duty as parents to protect our children. It may seem harmless and innocent to let a 7 year old child walk around with out a bikini top but I would NOT want a perverted man have sick thoughts about my child so I would definitely cover her up!

What is this? 1st of all you criticise Heidi for how she conducts herself, and then when people think she’s done nothing wrong, you criticise her parenting! Leave her alone, there is nothing wrong with either her, Leni, or anyone else, going topless if they want to!

It’s Europe! C’mon, maybe if we had just a little more relaxed view about the human body, then we’d not have as many kids and adults with horrible body image issues and eating disorders. Plus, with some of the sexually stylized and skimpy clothes for young girls today, I’d rather a child went around topless as if in a National Geographic than looking like a child prostitute.

My 7 year old son sees my breasts ( nursing our 3 week old) boobs aren’t there to be sexualized.

Bloody americans are so uptight about nudity!! this is completely innocent. In any other country on the planet (ok not all but most) it’s no big deal to sunbathe topless or be topless on the beach. IT’s skin and nipples folks.. we all have ‘em.. It’s not like Seal’s walking around wang swinging!

absolitly right. the is no big deal in nudity afterall we are born nude. so next time you tell you family members such as your father , mother,wife,daughter,son etc to not wear cloth at home. also they should bath in open.and most important have sex in front of them
