For the first seven years of her life, Leni Klum had no contact with Flavio Briatore. But now the patchwork family seems to be working very well. Accompanied by her mother Heidi, the model appears in good spirits during a visit to her biological father in Monaco.

Heidi Klum has given insights into her visit to the Formula 1 race on May 26 in Monaco on Instagram. The Grand Prix provided a family reunion for the model: She shared a snapshot in which she smiles at the camera together with her daughter Leni Klum, her ex-partner and Leni's father, Flavio Briatore, his ex-wife Elisabetta Gregoraci and their son Nathan Falco.

The patchwork family seemed to be in a great mood when they met again on the Côte d'Azur. Klum had already proven this the day before when she shared a video with her ex on social media. In it, she is seen happily spinning around holding the 74-year-old's hand in a loose dress.

Heidi Klum and Flavio Briatore were a couple for a few months in 2003. They split up while the “Germany's next Top Model” juror was pregnant with Leni. After that, the relationship between the two was said to have been strained for years. In 2009, Klum's then husband Seal adopted five-year-old Leni with Briatore's consent. In 2011, the former Formula 1 manager admitted to the “Bild” newspaper that he had never seen his daughter.

But that has changed in recent years and the patchwork family spends time together from time to time, as they do now in Monaco. In August, for example, Leni Klum shared a photo on her Instagram account in which she smiles at the camera with her half-brother Nathan. The distance makes it difficult to see each other more often, Briatore told the newspaper “La Repubblica” in 2022. “But that doesn't mean I love her any less.”

After her relationship with Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum married Seal, with whom she had three more children. Since 2019, she has been married for the third time to Tokio Hotel star Tom Kaulitz.
