Seal officially adopted Leni in 2009, four years after marrying her mother, ex-wife Heidi Klum, 50. The couple also share sons Henry, 17, Johan, 16, and daughter Lou, 13.

In January, Seal and Leni reunited for a father-daughter outing as they attended the premiere of Shotgun Wedding in Los Angeles.

Last year, the duo attended the 2022 U.S. Open together and were photographed hugging each other outside the stadium.

When she isn't attending events with her famous parents, Leni balances modeling with being a New York City college student. Leni opened up to PEOPLE about the trajectory of her career, which she acknowledged came naturally given her family's celebrity status, but has also been earned through a work ethic learned from her parents.

"They have both taught me to be myself, and to do what makes me feel comfortable," she shared on the valuable lessons her mom and dad have passed down to her.

She continued: "You can tell if you're not comfortable and then the best of you isn't brought out. I just think you should be open and honest with what makes you comfortable, be yourself, do what you love. And if you do all those three things then you're golden."
