Heidi Klum daughter Leni, 18, followed in her mother’s footsteps with a new modeling shot on Wednesday.
The showbiz legacy, who is following Heidi’s footsteps into the modeling business, posed on her Insta Stories in jeans and a pink bra.
Her makeup was done by cosmetics guru Ash Kholm, whose superstar clientele has included such names as the Kardashian-Jenners and Ariana Grande.
Leni made sure to share her gratitude to Ash, tagging her in the new Insta Stories photo and gushing: ‘I LOVE YOU.’
Her latest post comes after Heidi shared how impressed she is with Leni, who is kicking off a modeling career while studying interior design at college.

‘I’m very proud of my daughter and her modeling. And she’s studying at the same time, she’s juggling already,’ Heidi told People at the Kids’ Choice Awards.
On the personal front, Leni is in the midst of a longtime relationship with 19-year-old Ari Rachevsky, whom she has described as ‘my favorite person.’
Aris, who has reportedly enrolled at Harvard, is the son of Los Angeles talent agent Rhea Rachevsky, according to W magazine.
Although Aris and Leni are said to have been dating for three years, they are assiduously private and he rarely appears on her Instagram.
Leni’s latest Instagram update came a few months after the showbiz legacy responded to allegations she is a ‘nepo baby.’
‘It’s just a fact. My parents are famous,’ said Leni, who was adopted by her mother’s ex-husband Seal during the marriage.
However she insisted to People magazine that she is ‘doing the work and putting in the time’ to carve out a career for herself.
‘I did get help starting off, and I know that people would dream to start off with what I had,’ said Leni, who walked for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week in July with her mother proudly filming her from the audience.

‘I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to take what was gifted to me by my mom. But I am doing the work and putting in the time,’ she maintained.
‘Now I’m working on my own, traveling alone, going to school. My mom and I just have the same love for the same thing.’
Leni is one of a massive glut of rising new starlets with famous parents, from Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp to Andie MacDowell’s daughter Margaret Qualley.
Maya Hawke, whose parents are Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, and Kaia Gerber, whose mother is Cindy Crawford, have shot to fame in recent years as well.
Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Judd Apatow’s daughter Maude Apatow and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough are also coming up, among others.
Leni made her modeling debut at the age of 16 with her mother on the cover of Vogue Germany – a publication out of Heidi’s native country.
Heidi and Seal were married from 2005 until 2014 and they welcomed three children together biologically – Henry, 17, Johan, 16, and Lou, 13.
Meanwhile Leni resulted from Heidi’s previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, but in 2009 Seal legally adopted her as well.
