Seal is taking a minute to celebrate his daughter Leni. On Monday, the “Kiss From a Rose” singer, 60, shared a sweet post to his Instagram that honored his 19-year-old daughter. Posing together on a New York City street, Leni leaned her head on her father’s chest as Seal stuck a hand on his hip and smiled.
“In NY with the young woman who changed my life for the better 19yrs ago. Thank you Leni for making me a better person ,” the musician wrote in the caption, before signing off with “Love you, -papa.”
In the comments, Leni expressed her gratitude for her father’s post, writing “So cute! I love you papa ❤️.”
Seal officially adopted Leni in 2009, four years after marrying her mother, ex-wife Heidi Klum, 50. The couple also share sons Henry, 17, Johan, 16, and daughter Lou, 13.
In January, Seal and Leni reunited for a father-daughter outing as they attended the premiere of Shotgun Wedding in Los Angeles.
Last year, the duo attended the 2022 U.S. Open together and were photographed hugging each other outside the stadium.
When she isn’t attending events with her famous parents, Leni balances modeling with being a New York City college student. Leni opened up to PEOPLE about the trajectory of her career, which she acknowledged came naturally given her family’s celebrity status, but has also been earned through a work ethic learned from her parents.
