The 47-year-old supermodel couldn’t be more proud of Leni, 16, after making her modeling debut in December and subsequently landing spots in runway shows and on the cover of fashion magazines.
She said to people, “She did a fantastic job. She had wanted to model for a while. And I finally said yes because she’s old enough now, she’s almost 17. She started with the German Vogue cover and she has another cover that comes out in two months.
“She opened Berlin Fashion Week, where I saw her walk like a real model in high heels for the first time. It’s mind blowing to watch her work, especially the first thing I did with her and now she’s doing things herself even though I go to the set. “

Heidi claimed her daughter was a nascent supermodel from a young age after showing off her skills behind the camera.
She explained, “It’s amazing to see how she does everything. She comes to my sets all her life and is not really afraid of the cameras getting stuck in her face. I’m doing ‘Germany’s Next Top Model’ and she did a lot of shoots that the models had to do. At the end of the shooting she often said: “Now it’s my turn!” from the camera. She’s done so much over the years, she loves it. She loves it!”
The teenage girl made her debut as a model on the cover of Vogue Germany with her parents, with the couple rocking matching colorful pantsuits.
Leni told the publication: “It was only a matter of time before I would try it out as a model myself. The first offer came when I was only 12 or 13 years old from a brand I loved to wear: Brandy Melville. Back then I asked mom, but no chance! I now understand that it would have been too early.
“For most other jobs, I’d have to stifle my crazy ways to look ‘professional’. As a model, I can let everything out and just be who I am. The job is the perfect exit for all the energy that I have in me. “
