Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni addresses the nepotism comments

As the daughter of Heidi Klum and Seal, the 18-year-old got candid about how much her parents helped with launching her modelling career. "It's just a fact. My parents are famous," Leni told People in an interview when asked about the nepotism baby stereotype. "I did get help starting off, and I know that people would dream to start off with what I had. I'm so grateful that I've been able to take what was gifted to me by my mom." However, Leni shared that she is pulling her own weight as well. "But I am doing the work and putting in the time," she said. "Now I'm working on my own, travelling alone, going to school. My mom and I just have the same love for the same thing." The rising star's wish to follow in her mother's footsteps began when she was stopped at a Brandy Melville store at age 12. "They asked me to model for their clothes. And I feel like that's what sparked me to want to model more."
