- Heidi Klum's 16-year-old daughter Leni is interested in becoming a model.
- The supermodel shared that she turned down modelling job's in the past to protect her daughter's privacy.
- Now that Leni is driving Heidi thinks she is old enough to model if she chooses to.
Heidi Klum's eldest daughter Leni wants to follow her model mom's footsteps.
During an appearance on People's TV show the 47-year-old shared with host Kay Adams, that the 16-year-old doesn't fall far from the tree.
Heidi said that Leni often visits her on the set of Germany's Next Top Model and looks and learns what people are doing on the set. She even teased that Leni might replace her as host in the future.
"Who knows, maybe in five years when I'm not hosting the show anymore maybe it's going to be like Germany's Next Top Model by Leni Klum instead of Heidi Klum. Who knows, she's kind of playing with this idea", reports People.
The mom of four also revealed that Leni has been offered modelling jobs in the past but that she turned them down to protect her privacy.
"She's old enough now. She's driving a car now, she's 16, so I figured if you can do that, you can also model now if this is what you wish to do," said Heidi.
Leni - whose full name is Helene Boshoven Samuel - was adopted by Heidi's ex-husband Seal. Her biological father is businessman Flavio Briatore.
