According to INO, Heidi Klum’s husband Seal is hoping to adopt her 5 ½-year-old daughter Leni before Christmas. The 46-year-singer, who has three children with Heidi – Henry, 4, Johan, 3 and 6-week-old baby Lou – has already started on the legal proceedings to become Leni’s legal guardian.
Heidi’s father, Guenther, fully supports their decision: “Heidi, Seal and the kids have always been a happy family – in everyday life and in their heart. Then they should also be happy on paper.”
The couple has also been given the support of Leni’s biological father, 59-year-old Italian business man, Flavio Briatore. Flavio, whom Heidi has said has no part in Leni’s life, is currently expecting a child with his wife, 29-year-old Elisabetta Gregoraci.
Shortly after the birth of their first child, Seal, whose relationship with Heidi began when she was pregnant with Leni, spoke out about how he’s always thought of Leni as his own daughter:
Leni is my first child. Just like Henry I saw her take shape and move in Heidi’s body. And I was present at her birth, too. Leni is my daughter and Henry is my son. I am happy to have two healthy children and that Henry will soon be saying papa to me just like Leni does already.
What a beautiful family! We wish them all the very best.
