The ladies were in the front of a car as they took four selfies.
With their heads side by side it was easy to see the similarities between teh veteran catwalk queen and the up-and-coming teen sensation.
This comes after Heidi said she could not be prouder of Leni after she made her modelling debut in December and subsequently landed spots in runway shows and the cover of fashion magazines.
Fun with her little girl: ‘No retouching, no filter, all natural,’ shared the mother of four who wore a red hoodie as her child had on a black top
‘She’s been doing fantastic. She’s been wanting to model for quite some time,’ the beauty told People.
‘ ‘And I finally said yes because she’s now old enough, she’s almost 17.’ Leni added that her first job offer came when she was only 12-years-old but her mom wanted her to wait until she was older to work.
Klum wanted to make sure Leni was at least 16 before she worked.

‘She started with the German Vogue cover,’ said Heidi.
The teen made her debut as a model on the cover of Vogue Germany alongside her parent, with the pair rocking matching colorful trouser suits. The issue came out in December 2020.
Leni told the publication: ‘It was only a matter of time before I would try it myself as a model. The first offer came when I was only 12 or 13, from a brand I loved to wear: Brandy Melville.
‘Back then I begged Mom, but no chance! I now understand that it would have been too early.
‘For most other jobs, I’d have to stifle my crazy ways to look “professional.” As a model, I can let everything out and just be who I am. The job is the perfect outlet for all the energy that I have in me.’

And Klum hinted at what is to come for her little teen girl: ‘She has another cover that’s coming out in two months,’ said the star.
‘She opened Berlin Fashion Week where I saw her walk for the first time, in heels like as a real fashion model.

‘It’s mind-blowing to me to watch her work, especially the first thing I did together with her and now she’s doing things by herself, even though I go to the set.’
Heidi claimed her daughter has been a supermodel-in-the-making from a young age after she showed off her skills behind the camera.
She explained: ‘It’s amazing to watch her do it all. She’s been coming to my sets for her entire life and she’s not really afraid of the cameras being stuck in her face.’
The blonde noted: ‘I do Germany’s Next Top Model and she’s done a lot of the shoots the models had to do. A lot of the times at the end of the shoots, she would be like, “Now it’s my turn!” off camera.
‘She’s done so much over the years, she loves it. She loves it!’
