While ‘proud’ of her girl moving out on her own, like any mother Heidi expressed some sadness watching Leni move out.
‘Unfortunately, she is moving away from home,’ Heidi said.
‘Which is obviously sad but at the same time that she’s got enough to go for it. She’s moving to New York. I started in New York, so she knows New York inside and out because we shot Project Runway there for many years.’
‘So, she knows it well because I always move my family to New York when we were still filming. So, I think she’s going to have a good time, but my heart will be sad,’ she explained.
