This past Tuesday, Seal and his 18-year-old daughter Leni were spotted in Beverly Hills sharing a tender embrace.

The 59-year-old singer, who co-parented Leni with his ex-wife Heidi Klum, was all smiles as he embraced his teenage daughter.

He looked quite summery in all white, while Leni looked very California cool with a crop top and matching blue denim.

Between 2005 and 2014, Heidi and Seal had three biological children: Henry (now 16), Johan (now 15), and Lou (now 12).

Meanwhile, Leni is the product of Heidi’s former relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, but Seal formally adopted her in 2009.

Flavio told the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera in 2016 that although Leni was biologically his daughter, the three of them had mutually decided that it was in the best interest of all involved for her to be adopted by him.

In addition, Flavio, now 72, said, “Leni is Seal’s family, Nathan mine,” referring to his son Nathan, who he had with a much younger Wonderbra model.

Heidi is currently married to German rock star Tom Kaulitz, well known as the band’s guitarist.

Last year, Seal made headlines when he opened up publicly about the challenges he and Heidi faced while co-parenting their children.

It can be difficult at times. To accomplish this, cooperation is essential. It’s simple and not difficult at all if both parents work together as a unit. A team effort is required, though. And if you aren’t working as a team, everything can go wrong,” he told Us Weekly.

After that, Seal made the bombshell allegation that he and Heidi “never had that collaboration” when it comes to raising their children.

In 2020, when she intended to take the kids back to her own country to film Germany’s Next Top Model there, the rift between them became public knowledge.

While Seal raised concerns that the children could be exposed to coronavirus, Heidi was ultimately vindicated in a rush to judgment.

He was granted “extended time” with them before and after her trip to Germany was approved.

Like her mother before her, Leni has entered the world of modeling. In fact, only last week she was photographed walking the Dolce & Gabbana catwalk in Sicily.

In the audience, Heidi was cheering on her daughter and documenting the event so she could share it on Instagram.
