Heidi Klum says daughter Leni, 16, has an interest in modeling and hosting TV

The star's child has taken an interest in 'Germany's Next Top Model'

Heidi Klum's daughter is ready to follow in her mother's footsteps.

The international modeling icon shares her 16-year-old daughter, Leni, who was adopted by the singer Seal. She also shares three younger children with Seal, her ex-husband: Henry, 15, Johan, 14, and Lou, 11.

On Thursday, Kulm, 47, spoke with People magazine and revealed that Leni -- born Helene -- enjoys spending time with her mother on the set of "Germany's Next Top Model."

"She kind of comes [on set] and looks and learns not just what I do but also what all the different people are doing on a TV set. I think it's very interesting to her,” the model said. “When you're that age you're still trying to figure out who you are, what you want to be and kind of see for the first time what are all these different jobs to make a TV show happen. She does want to do what I do.”

Klum seems to be open to the idea as well.

“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 joked. “She's kind of playing with this idea.”

Klum said that she used to keep her daughter out of the spotlight in order to protect her privacy, but now that Leni's grown up a bit, things have changed.

“She's old enough now,” said the "America's Got Talent" judge. “I always thought she was too young. We always also decided to keep the children out of the public eye. But 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.”

"I'm definitely more open with my body and I'm an outgoing person. I am from Germany and I am, you know, I don't always tend to wear the most clothes," said the model. "So you know sometimes they will give me a nudge and be like, 'Mom, really?'"
