Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel is a celebrity kid who became a focus of media attention in the entertainment industry and beyond after his parents shared the news of his arrival to the press. And ever since he started living with other members of his family in their mansion, the amount of media coverage he receives has continued to spiral upwards.
Samuel was born to celebrity parents who are successful as well in their own rights. Like most famous parents, Heidi Klum and the father of her child have been trying their best to ensure Johan lives a normal life and also grows up away from the cameras. Here are all the facts about the young boy and his family.
Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel’s Bio
Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel is the second biological son and third child of entertainment powerhouses Heidi Klum and Seal. His mother gave birth to him in the city of Los Angeles, California on 22nd November 2006.
The starlet is of American nationality and belongs to a multi-racial background that includes Germany, Nigeria, and Brazil. His mom is from Germany while his dad (though in Paddington, London) is the son of an African-Brazilian father known as Francis Samuel and a Nigerian mother called Adebisi Ogundeji.
Being someone that was born into an elite family, Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel is having the best moment of childhood life with his family. The young lad could probably take after his mother as a model, TV personality, actor, entrepreneur, or embark on a musical journey like his famous dad.
However, neither his mom nor dad has actually mentioned if he has an interest in show business or not. The celebrity kid, no doubt, has many career paths to choose from when the right time comes but presently he is still in school focusing on his studies.
Heidi Klum’s son couldn’t have asked for a better family; his dad, mom, and siblings mean so much to him and the young boy does shy away from showing the world how much he loves his family whenever they are seen in public.
Johan Riley Fyodor Taiwo Samuel has two biological siblings – an older brother, a younger sister, as well as a half-sister who came from his mother’s romantic affair with her ex-lover Flavio Briatore, an Italian business mogul/managing director of Renault’s Formula One team.
His brother, Henry Günther Adeola Dashtu Samuel was born on the 12th day of September 2005 while his younger sister named Lou Sulola Samuel arrived in the world on the 9th of October 2009.
Taiwo’s half-sister Helene (Leni) Klum was born in New York City, in the month of May 2004. Her mother conceived her after she started dating Flavio in March 2003. Sadly, the two called it quits not long after Klum announced that she was carrying Briatore’s baby.
Klum was still pregnant with Helene when she met Johan’s dad. The two fell in love and became involved in each other’s life. Heidi later opened up to Seal about the child in her womb and in response, Seal agreed to take care of the baby as his own.
A seal was present when Klum gave birth to Helene and in 2009, Flavio Briatore gave him permission to adopt Helene and change her surname to Samuel. To date, Heidi still considers Seal as the father of Leni as Briatore, who has never been involved in her life.

Klum Heidi holds the record as the first model from Germany to become a Victoria’s, Secret Angel. Prior to her marriage to Johan’s dad, she was previously married to Sydney, Australia-born celebrity actor/hairstylist Ric Pipino (1997 – 2002) and their union did not produce children.
