She’s a daddy’s girl.
Heidi Klum’s 18-year-old daughter, Leni Klum, walked the red carpet with her dad, Seal, more than 10 years after her parents split up.
The father-daughter-duo attended the star-studded premiere of “Shotgun Wedding” in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.
Leni shared the sweet moment with her dad, smiling for the shutterbugs as he wrapped his arm around her.
The model looked chic in a strapless black mini dress and accessorized with black pointed-toe sling-backs and a matching box clutch. She finished her look with a red lip and coordinating claws.
Meanwhile, the “Kiss from a Rose” singer, 59, was stylish and cozy in a black bomber jacket zipped over a white T-shirt. He also wore black pants and white sneakers.
Leni’s biological father is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. But Heidi broke up with Briatore while she was pregnant with Leni and started dating Seal.
The “Project Runway” alum eventually married Seal in 2005 and that year he adopted Leni. While Heidi and Seal separated in 2012 and finalized their divorce two years later, Seal continued to raise Leni as his own and they’ve remained close amid their breakup.
Leni has been outspoken about the “nepo baby” label and the advantages of having two famous parents.
“It’s just a fact. My parents are famous,” Leni told People in October 2022. “I did get help starting off, and I know that people would dream to start off with what I had. I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to take what was gifted to me by my mom.”
But Leni said her privilege shouldn’t detract from how hard she works at her career.
“I am doing the work and putting in the time. Now I’m working on my own, traveling alone, going to school.” she said. “My mom and I just have the same love for the same thing.”
Leni followed in her mother’s footsteps and recently shot a lingerie campaign with the former Victoria’s Secret Angel. Leni and Heidi faced backlash for the photoshoot but her daughter defended their collaboration.
“I honestly didn’t look at a lot of the reactions,” Leni exclusively told Page Six at her mom’s annual Halloween party last November. “I am overall happy with the campaign and I had an amazing day with my mom. I think the photos turned out great, and we had an amazing time.”
Leni also gushed over her mother and was proud of getting the opportunity to work with such a professional.
“I love her. She’s an inspiration. Just the advice she gives me, the way she works, everything about her, I can go on and on,” Leni said, adding, “I love shooting with her.”
Heidi married Tom Kaulitz, with whom she shows plenty of PDA, in 2019. She was also previously married to Ric Pipino from 1997 to 2002. Meanwhile, Seal has not remarried but Page Six reported in August 2021 that he’s dating his former personal assistant, Laura Strayer.
