We would have never known it but in a new Instagram post, Heidi Klum has revealed she was four months pregnant when she walked the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2003. For the occasion of her daughter Leni‘s 17th birthday overnight, the supermodel reflected on the evening. It featured the German bombshell wearing the lauded Fantasy Bra.
“Happy 17th birthday LENI. I am not alone walking down that catwalk here,” Klum shared to her 7.9 million followers. “If I look close enough then I can see you bumping right along at 4 months @LeniKlum. I loved you before you were born, and I will love you long after I close my eyes forever. ❤️❤️❤️”
Klum gave birth to Leni in May 2004. She had just split with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. In December 2009, Klum’s now ex-husband Seal adopted Leni. Following their subsequent divorce, the designer and model married Tokio Hotel musician Tom Kaulitz in July 2019.
With genes like Klum’s it’s no surprise that Leni followed in her footsteps to model. She recently appeared in the Germany edition of Vogue and Glamour. According to the 47-year-old mother, it was natural a segway into the industry for the young offspring.
“She’s been doing fantastic,” Klum told People. “She’s been wanting to model for quite some time. And I finally said yes because she’s now old enough, she’s almost 17.”
“She opened Berlin Fashion Week where I saw her walk for the first time, in heels like as a real fashion model. It’s mind blowing to me to watch her work, especially the first thing I did together with her and now she’s doing things by herself, even though I go to the set,” Klum noted.
Earlier this year Gigi Hadid revealed she was pregnant with her daughter Khai on the runway of Jaquemus Fall/Winter 2020.
