The teenager has previously spoken about Heidi’s influence on her modeling career, revealing in a September 2021 interview for RollacoasterBrandy Melville approached her and offered her a job at the age of 12. “I was freaking out because I loved the brand,” she recalled at the time. “And I was shopping with my mom that day so I was like, ‘Mom, please, I’m begging you! I’ve wanted to do this for so long. You can do it, why can’t I?’”

The However, Project Runway star told her daughter that she was “too young” for photo shoots. “Ever since then I’ve been begging and begging,” Leni added.

Heidi gave the go-ahead for 2020. America’s Got TalentJudge has provided her daughter with lots of support and advice. “She’s always telling me, ‘Just be true to yourself and don’t let what other people are saying affect you or change what you’re doing. And it’s always OK to say no,’” Leni told the outlet.

Heidi — who also shares Henry, 16, Johan, 15, and Lou, 12, with ex-husband Seal — told Entertainment Tonight in June 2021 that she initially “worried” about Leni when she first started working as a model, but she’s glad that her daughter has found her passion. “[I go] to every shoot,” Heidi said at the time. “For me, the most important thing is that she has fun. And that she loves it and enjoys it.”

The Germany native continued: “She’s been with a camera for her whole life. So she’s never been afraid of the camera the way other kids may be.”

Leni’s adoptive father, however, isn’t as enthusiastic about her decision to walk the catwalk. “That’s a precarious road to take,” the Kiss From a Rose singer, 59, told Us WeeklyExclusively in May 2021. “Seldom does it end in happiness, but what do I know? She’s 17. It’s not my fault. It’s not my first choice. You must. [let them do]They will be happy with whatever you do. They are your love. You keep them safe to the best of your ability, then you let go.”
