Heidi Klum’s first daughter, Leni, was born on May 4, 2004. Though her biological father is Flavio Briatore, by the time the future model was born, her mother had already moved on. Heidi married “Kiss From a Rose” crooner Seal, and he’d go on to raise her, even after splitting from Heidi in 2014.
As Leni grew, it became more and more apparent that she’d inherited her mother’s stunning model looks, and eventually they’d begin stepping out on red carpets together. In an interview with Flaunt magazine, Leni once divulged that she’s always been fascinated by her mom’s glamorous career. “I would go to my mom’s work all the time—it was the most interesting thing to me,” she told the outlet. “I watched her work and thought, ‘This is so fun, it’s so exciting. This is what I want to do,'” she said.
