Heidi Klum and her daughter Leni were spotted while stepping out on a shopping trip in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District on Thursday afternoon.
The 49-year-old supermodel and her daughter, 18, made a point of holding hands for much of their excursion and at one point were seen skipping down one of the neighborhood’s walkways.
The pair’s outing comes after the latter of the two was featured on the cover of a fashion and beauty-centric magazine.

Leni stunned in a new magazine cover for Hunger, which she shared onto her Instagram on Thursday.
This marks the rising runway star’s latest magazine covers since her start in the industry just two years ago, following features in Vogue Germany and Glamour Germany.
Since following in her supermodel mom’s footsteps, the teen has recently made the move to the Big Apple to begin her first year of college and pursue more modeling opportunities.

Her makeup was elegantly done, with only a touch of mascara to allow her blue eyes to stand out. A bright red lipstick was worn to add an additional pop of color to the overall ensemble.
Leni’s brunette hair was parted in the middle and fell down past her shoulders in messy waves.
In a short caption to the new post, the star wrote out, ‘hunger shoot with uncle Rankin.’
Rankin is a well-known, British photographer who has collaborated with a number of artists throughout the course of his career, including David Bowie and Madonna.
He is also the founder of Hunger Magazine, which was launched over a decade ago in 2011. According to the official website, the publication focuses on ‘culture and fashion.’

During an interview last year with Extra TV, Leni discussed a modeling tip she received from her mother, Heidi, when she started out in the industry.
‘She’s always telling me that I need to have fun, and she’s always like, ‘bounce around, be fun, be energetic, be excited,’ the star explained.
The media personality also explained that although both her mother and herself enjoying the modeling and fashion industry, their style choices are the complete opposite.
‘She calls it grungy,’ Leni stated, talking about how Heidi perceives her own personal fashion. ‘I just call it oversized…never catch me in super tight jeans because I don’t like wearing things that are uncomfortable.’
The model’s biological father is Heidi’s ex, Flavio Briatore. However, singer Seal, legally adopted Leni in 2009 after tying the knot with the Making The Cut star in 2005. After nearly seven years of marriage, Heidi filed for divorce in 2012, which was finalized two years later in 2014.

Leni, who is fluent in German, recently left home to move to New York City to begin her first year of college.
Her mother, Heidi, recently discussed her feelings to be far away from her daughter during a recent interview on The Late Late Show With James Cordon.
‘It’s so sad,’ the America’s Got Talent judge admitted. ‘This weekend, she just moved in, and I call her. Normally she picks up, but then three, four hours I don’t hear anything.’
‘And already, my head is going ‘Where is she? What is she doing? Why is she not answering?’ Already the worrying is starting,’ Heidi revealed.
The supermodel stated that, at one point, she had called Leni every two hours. ‘Now I want the number of the roommate, so I can bug the roommate if she doesn’t pick up,’ Heidi stated humorously.
