Ulrika Jonsson hits out at Heidi Klum for photoshoot with daughter
‘Your daughter is not your bezzie mate’: Ulrika Jonsson says Heidi Klum, 49, posing with her lookalike daughter Leni, 18, in lingerie photoshoot makes her feel ‘deeply uneasy’
Ulrika Jonsson has hit out at Heidi Klum, 49, for posing alongside her daughter Leni, 18, in a lingerie photoshoot.
The TV presenter, 55, said the photos made her feel ‘deeply uneasy’ and she would never ask her own daughters to pose with her like that.
Writing in her column for The Sun, Ulrika said she feels stars like Cindy Crawford and Kylie Jenner are making ‘strategic’ decisions to ‘exhibit’ their daughters.

Ulrika is mother to daughters Bo, 22, and Martha, 18, and said both of them would find it ‘cringe’ to pose in their underwear alongside their mother.
She wrote: ‘If I asked them to pose next to me in a lingerie photoshoot or even, God forbid, “twinning” with me, I wouldn’t even get a response, just a glare that says “NO”.’
Ulrika said celebrity mothers ‘twinning’ with their daughters feels like a modern-day version of Jane Austen novels, when young women were ‘paraded and boasted about’.
She said: ‘Trying to match with your daughter makes me feel deeply uneasy. It’s like trying to make the child look like you or perhaps, worse still, make you look like a child. Besides, your daughter is your daughter. Not your bezzie mate.’

Ulrika also wondered whether stars show off their daughters as a way to let everyone know ‘how young and youthful they still look’.
She said: ‘But could there also be an underlying whiff of mums, such as Heidi — or Gwynnie even — showing off their daughters in an attempt, at the same time, of letting the world see how young and youthful they still look in comparison?’
The former Gladiators host said she suspected some celebrity mothers want people to think they look more like their daughter’s sister, rather than her mum.
Heidi’s daughter Leni has followed in her mother’s footsteps and made quite the name for herself in the modelling world.
She recently stunned in a new magazine cover for Hunger and has had features in Vogue Germany and Glamour Germany, as well as walking in Milan Fashion Week last month.
The social media personality, who boasts 1.5 million followers on Instagram, recently left home to move to New York City to begin her first year of college.
