Watch AGT: All-Stars on NBC and Peacock.

On February 12, the America’s Got Talent: All-Stars Judge took to her official Instagram page to share some black-and-white throwback photos to celebrate her mother Erna’s b-day. In the first snapshot, we see a vintage photo of Erna cradling baby Klum and smiling. In the second, we get a more up-to-date photo of an adult Heidi Klum posing next to her mom with her head on her shoulder. There’s no denying the family resemblance!

“Happy Birthday Mama I LOVE YOU,” she captioned the post, followed by a bunch of heart emojis. See the photo here. 

Heidi Klum is surely a family gal. Her daughter, Leni, takes after her in both modeling skills and appearance, which you can see in her new Dior campaign

They really are a close mother-daughter pair. "My mom and I are just completely comfortable around each other, and we were dancing around the whole day. That was what we had to do, and we do that anyway, so it just fit right. It was just such a fun day," Leni told People when describing modeling with her mother for Italian brand Intimissimi. "I've always gone to work with my mom and thought, 'This looks so fun. She looks so happy while she's working,' jump in sometimes, and I'd play around with the makeup that her makeup Artist would bring." 

Leni’s first major modeling gig was when she was on the cover of Vogue Germany with Heidi at the age of 16. "That's, like, insane that I did that as my first job and my mom was with me, which made it so much fun. It was just such a good day. I wasn't nervous at all. I was just so excited," Leni gushed.


Leni is also living in New York as a college student. "She’s not going to a dorm, but I see these crazy things that people do all the time, and I’m like, I hope she’s holding on to all of the things I’ve been telling her all her life. Have fun, just not too much," Heidi told Access about her daughter spreading her wings.

"I’m trying not to freak out, 'cause, you know, we all have to do this at some point; we all have to leave the nest," she added. "You can’t forever live with your parents."
