Model Heidi Klum congratulated her daughter Leni, who turned 20 on May 4th. “Happy 20th birthday Leni Olumi,” she wrote on Instagram. She also published an old video in which she holds her daughter as a small child in her arms and apparently bathes with her in the sea. To do this, she presses a kiss on her cheek and slowly repeats the sentence “I love you” several times.

“Time flies,” the 50-year-old writes in the throwback clip. “It feels like it was only yesterday. I love you with all my heart,” she says directly to her daughter. “Keep shining in your beautiful light.” Her boyfriend Aris Rachevsky also celebrated Leni on Instagram.

He captioned a couple photo: “Happy birthday to the love of my life. Forever.” According to an anniversary post, the two have been dating since 2019. The birthday child herself appeared in an Instagram story with a birthday crown and cake and beamed into the camera.

Leni Klum was born in New York City on May 4, 2004 and has only been in the spotlight for four years. For 16 years, hardly anything was known about Heidi Klum’s eldest daughter. However, since her debut on the mother-daughter cover of German Vogue, her every move has received a lot of attention. Leni Klum appeared on the catwalk for the first time in summer 2021, followed by numerous magazine covers with star photographers. Her father is the former Formula 1 manager Flavio Briatore. In 2009, Klum’s then-husband Seal adopted the five-year-old.
