Heidi Klum has made a large appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Wednesday afternoon (June 16), of trying (and failing) to scare DeGeneres into revealing how she taught her colleague America has talent Judge Howie Mandel walking in high heels.
In the midst of it all, the iconic 49-year-old model pounced on her 17-year-old daughter Leni, following in her footsteps:
“A few months ago we covered the German Vogue together. Now she made the Charm cover, which I premiered for German Glamor 20 years ago, and now it’s on the cover. And it’s so crazy like all of a sudden your own kid is working, and you know the phone just kept ringing.
“I feel like Kris Jenner, in a way. Call me Kris from now on. Not Heidi anymore. I mean, it’s so weird, but I’m so happy for her.”
As big as Heidi’s mannequin shoes are fillable for Leni, Kris’ mom’s shoes are even bigger. “You can’t be called Kris Jenner unless all of your kids are making money,” DeGeneres aptly pointed out.
