And judging by the latest snap that Cindy, 48, posted on Instagram and captioned "Just hangin out with @kaiajordan and @presley_gerber", they are headed in the right direction.
The brunette's beautiful children with husband Rande Gerber – son Presley, 14, and 11-year-old Kaia – cut fine model figures as they pout for the camera.
With long brown locks and beautiful features, Kaia looks like a replica of her mum – so it's no wonder the youngster was chosen to star in a campaign for Young Versace at the tender age of ten.
Blond-haired Presley, meanwhile, has inherited the distinctive mole that propelled his mum to international stardom.
Though the mark on her left upper lip has become Cindy's trademark, she recently revealed that she was once encouraged to have it removed.
"Apparently if it was on the right side it was a beauty mark, and if it was on the left it was an ugly mark," she told Into The Gloss in May.
"I would get teased by the other kids in school, so I definitely wanted to get it removed. But my mother always said, 'You know what your mole looks like, you don't know what the scar is going to look like'."
Cindy is grateful for her mother's advice, as her mole became her trademark as a model.
"Now it's just so much a part of my face that I don't think, 'Oh, how's my mole doing today?' But it's the thing that made people remember me, and it made a lot of women who also have beauty marks identify with me," she said.
