The teenager joked that she was a "little past sun-kissed" as she shared the snapshot of herself modeling a tiny bikini and some tan lines too.

Use sunblock with a high zinc oxide," and there were many more who urged her to protect her skin and her health. Leni is currently enjoying some downtime after graduating from high school ahead of the summer break. 

While she's been taking the modeling world by storm, Heidi revealed she is also going to be attending her dream college, which is believed to be in New York.

Leni is following in her mom's modeling footsteps 

The amicable gathering is especially surprising, given that Flavio stepped away from parenting his daughter with Heidi.

Her ex-husband and the father to her three other children, Seal, adopted Leni when she was a baby. 

Flavio told Italy's Il Corriere della Sera: "Leni is my natural daughter, but the three of us happily agreed that it made more sense if Seal adopted her because a child needs to grow up in a family."

The 72-year-old now has a son, Nathan, 12, with his wife, and has said: "It's hard to miss a baby that you never see. But I know that Leni is not an abandoned child. Leni is part of Seal's family and Nathan is part of mine."
