She is too cute! I love the “Mom, you are not moving fast enough!” tug that she has going on. You know she’s excited since it’s usually the kids being pulled along at a fast pace. LOL

I love this family!

She is so cute but her dad isn´t seal. it is flavio briatore.

Annie on

Seal isn’t Leni’s dad, is her stepfather. Leni’s dad is Flavio Briatore (Renault director)🙂

Angela’s note: Flavio has not been involved in Leni’s life and Heidi makes a point of stating that Seal is Leni’s father.

Seal isn’t Leni’s dad. That blonde blue eyed little girl would have been a mean feat of genetics if Seal was her dad!

I love this family. I have 4 kids, 3 of which were very close in age, just like Heidi’s!

A friend of mine has a similar situation. Her 14 month old daughter’s biological father is not involved at all. When she was was pregnant (about 6 weeks pg) she met Matt, and now they are married and expecting another child. Matt is Maddie’s dad even if its not in the genes. Just like Seal!

I LOVE that you guys list that Seal is her Dad. It is so true and I have so much admiration and respect for him. Its like the saying goes…”anyone can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad”…or something like that!

Leni looks just like flavio the older she gets, same expression and features.

It is great that he is the “Dad”. I am surprised there has not been a formal adoption..anyone know anything about it??

I agree with Annie – In every other post you mention the childs biological parent, so why make an exception with Heidi ??

Sarah’s note: No, we don’t. In the case of Seal and with Peter Andre, who raises Harvey as his own, we refer to them as the dad. Other people may be the biological father, but if the mother or dad has come out and said that he is the one who is a parent to the child, we respect that and refer to them that way.

I agree with Sarah and others. The genes don’t make a dad. A dad is someone who raised the child, reads the books before night, takes you to the activities and is there for you every day and night and wants you and loves you and your mom. That’s a dad.

how come everytime there’s a picture of sweet little Leni, we end up talking about flavio Briatore, fathers and stuff like that.
Have you heard Seal talking about Leni? He’s in love with that child. In 4 years have you ever heard Flavio say anything about Leni? Well, the only thing he said, was that Leni wasn’t his daughter and that Heid cheated on him….what a dad!

Awwwh Leni is going to be just as gorgeous as Heidi and I agree that Flavio FATHERED her but Seal is her DAD and there is a big difference. Since this is the way all three adults are content with I see nothing wrong with the way CBB stated it.

Kris on

Sushi – Amen!

Leni is adorable. She has such a sweet happy face.

Luciana on

The moment I read “Dad is Seal”, I knew that would be some comments about it.
When people will realize that conceiving a child is sooooooo not the same thing as to be a dad???
Seal IS Leni’s dad. He’s with Heidi since she was pregnant. He was with her when she gave birth, when Leni got sick, when Leni said her first words, gave first steps…
