Heidi Klum Says Daughter Leni Wants to Follow in Her Footsteps but Is ‘Her Own Little Person’

Heidi Klum might soon be passing the style torch on to her daughter!

The Making the Cut star, 46, opens up about the show, family life and more in this week’s issue of PEOPLE alongside co-creator and co-host Tim Gunn, revealing that while her 15-year-old daughter Leni is “her own little person,” she does have a certain knack for her mom’s career path.

The only one so far who wants to step in my footsteps is my oldest daughter, Leni,” says Klum, who’s also mom to daughter Lou Sulola, 10, plus sons Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo, 13, and Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu, 14 — all of whom “have been coming to set their whole entire life.

Regardless of the fact that Leni feels she “has to do her own thing” in life (“I’ve never pushed [my kids] to do anything,” Klum says), her oldest child feels a natural pull toward the world of fashion.

“She just started where she said, ‘Okay, move over. Let me take this over,’ ” Klum tells PEOPLE of Leni, adding, “It’s definitely a ruthless business. It’s also changed a lot over the years. It was very different when I started in 1992.”

As far as Gunn, 66, is concerned, Klum’s kids (whom she shares with ex-husband Seal) are his nieces and nephews, considering how far he and their mom go back in their friendship and careers.

“I hope they think of me as an uncle,” he tells PEOPLE. “I’ve known them since they were infants and it’s been wonderful watching them grow up.

What has been so reassuring for me in terms of the future of humanity is Heidi’s super parenting and the fact that her kids are so beautifully behaved and polite and respectful, yet you don’t feel as though they’re shackled or chained,” Gunn adds. “They’re just themselves, and it all comes from Heidi.

You’ve seen me breastfeeding with all of them and pregnant with all of them,” Klum tells Gunn. “I was always pregnant when we were shooting [Project Runway]. I was always breastfeeding or I was on the stage with a big belly … I had to be very creative. At that time, there was not so much maternity wear that you could wear on a TV show.

What’s also remarkable was how quickly you weren’t pregnant,” Gunn says. “You’d have the baby and suddenly, ‘What do you mean you just had a baby?’

Yeah, I was always very lucky with that,” says Klum. “That belly just came and went.

Heidi Klum has opened up about her third marriage to musician Tom Kaulitz, saying ‘it just works’ in an exclusive interview for Red’s May issue (out now).

The German-born supermodel married Kaulitz last year, and it’s clear they’re very much in love.

When we close our door and we’re at home, we just want to be with each other,’ she said. ‘It’s just like the core is the same. The values are the same.

She added: ‘You see so many times that someone falls in love and then it doesn’t gel as well, so I’m so happy and grateful that everyone is happy with one another,’ she said. ‘That he is cool with my kids, my kids are cool with him…He’s a 30-year-old man, so there’s just a different life and spirit about him. He does music and his brother has neon-green hair. He has tattoos everywhere.’

Klum also admitted co-parenting with her ex-husband Seal is ‘sometimes hard’.

She says both she and her musician ex – who she was married to for seven years – ‘try as good as we can’ when it comes to bringing up their three children; sons Henry, 14 and Johan, 13, and daughter Lou, 10. Klum also has a daughter Leni, 15, from her relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.

There’s always a reason why you’re not with someone any more, you know?,’ Klum said. ‘It’s not all rosy-rosy. It just isn’t. So sometimes it’s hard, but then you have to all come together as a family and sometimes everything is just like hopping on clouds. It’s just the way it is.

The 46-year-old was equally as candid about her relationship with her body (‘I feel happy with who I am and how I am. If I wasn’t, I would change it’) and her new-found friendship with Mel B (‘She’s a tough, strong woman, which I love’).

Klum also shared some life wisdom with Red that is particularly poignant right.

Something that I’ve learned over the years is to be happier in the moment,’ she admits. ‘I want to experience and love and live more in that very day and make that beautiful instead of wishing it away. But I don’t look back. I live in the present and prepare for what’s to come.

Moore From L.A.: Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn on Their Return to the Screen With ‘Making the Cut’

Looking for some fashion distraction? Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn are ready to help — and maybe change the business along the way.

The former “Project Runway” hosts and mentors lead the cast of “Making the Cut,” premiering Friday on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service. The show is revolutionary in that it will let viewers in more than 100 countries shop winning designs after every episode from the same online platform. And with the coronavirus keeping millions at home worldwide, the timing could prove fortuitous.

I hope that people are able to take a break from focusing on the situation to enjoy the show,” said Klum, who had her own health scare recently, but is recovering after testing negative for COVID-19. “We had the best time creating and putting this together.

With Naomi Campbell, Carine Roitfeld, Joseph Altuzarra and Nicole Richie as judges, the program follows 12 entrepreneurs and designers from places such as Berlin, Milan, Los Angeles and more competing for a $1 million prize and the chance to turn their fledgling businesses into global brands with a year of mentorship at Amazon Fashion.

In addition to selling winning looks from individual challenges along the way, Amazon has exclusive rights to sell a full collection from the series winner (which they will develop during their mentorship) outside of his or her own store. After seeing the devastation COVID-19 is wreaking on small businesses, Amazon pledged this week to donate 100 percent of the proceeds from all winning looks back to the designers.

Fashion is such an incredibly hard business and this is a big hit, especially to young designers,” said Sara Rea, producer of the original “Runway” and the new Amazon series. “As far as the ‘Making the Cut’ designers go, they are now receiving all of the profits for their items sold. I shared this good news with the designers and the responses have been so incredibly ecstatic and grateful that it brought me to tears. I am so happy for them and it is my hope that this will get them through this very hard time.

At this moment, who knows what the COVID-19 impact will be?” added Gunn. “We can trust that online shopping has a robust future!

That’s for sure.

The show is the newest marriage of content and commerce for the Seattle-based online behemoth, which has been improving on its early QVC-like shopping segments with more slickly produced fashion entertainment programming. In July 2019, Amazon exclusively launched Lady Gaga’s Haus Laboratories beauty line with Amazon Live previews and tutorials, and in September, it produced Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty runway show, bringing her lingerie collection to Prime Video members to watch and shop.

Shopping, entertainment and content are increasingly intertwined, and customers simultaneously need and want immediate wear-now access,” Amazon Fashion president Christine Beauchamp told WWD. Two episodes will be released each week, with winning styles for purchase immediately, at $100 or less, in sizes XXS to XXL.

Could it be the beginning of a new way for consumers to see and buy fashion, especially in the absence of so much else?
