Heidi Klum, 47, and Her Daughter Leni, 16, Look like Twins While Sharing a Kiss in a New Photo
"Germany's Next Top Model" star Heidi Klum has shown off how close she is to her lookalike 16-year-old daughter, Leni Klum, as she kissed her on the lips.
Leni Klum posted on her Instagram Story a sweet picture of herself and her mom, Heidi Klum, kissing. The 47-year-old model then reposted the photo on her page with a lot of heart stickers.
In the photo, you can tell how much Heidi loves her daughter. Meanwhile, the doting mother has encouraged Leni to follow her footsteps down the catwalk and onto magazine covers.

In December, Heidi, who shares Leni with Flavio Briatore, talked to PEOPLE (the TV show!) about her daughter's modeling dreams and the pieces of advice she has given to her.
The model, who is also mom to Henry, 15, Johan, 14, and Lou, 11, spoke warmly of her daughter Leni's choices and explained why it was time to get out there. She said:
"She's old enough now. I always thought she was too young. We always also decided to keep the children out of the public eye."

However, Heidi had to add that Leni is already driving a car at 16, so the model figured if her daughter could do that, then she could model now, as well, if she wanted to.
Heidi emphasized that she has never pressured Leni into modeling but has always supported her wishes for success. Leni often joins her mom on the set of "Germany's Next Top Model."
Leni debuted as a model on the cover of Vogue Germany's January/February 2021 issue, along with her mother.
The editorial video exhibition at Berlin Fashion Week began on January 20, when Leni presented 25 outfits from Germany's top designers. Among them were Kaviar Gauche and Michael Sontag.
One of Leni's outfits was designed by Esther Perbrandt. Leni uploaded photos from the show on social media, and Heidi couldn't help but express her pride as a proud mom in the comments.

Heidi couldn't control her excitement and shared the photo on social media along with a long, heartfelt message to Leni. The model praised Leni's personality because she always knows what she wants.
On January 9, Leni got candid with her Instagram followers by posting an unfiltered photo and revealing an active acne breakout along with some redness on her cheek.
To go along with the photograph posted on her Instagram page, the teenager shared a video on Instagram Stories showing her bare face to her avid fans.
