Berlin Fashion week is underway and a new – and very young – model with a familiar face is making waves with her runway debut on Tuesday.

Boris Becker's daughter Anna Ermakova made her runway debut for German label Riani on Tuesday. The 14-year-old model shared the opening spot with a giant poodle.

Ermakov signed with Mega Models earlier this year. She told a German tabloid she was allowed to walk in the runway show only after her mother, a former model, gave permission.

"My mother is proud of me when I do well at school. Only because of that was I allowed to come here," she told Bild.


Cheering her along from the front row was Becker and Ermakova's mother, Angela Ermakova.

Their relationship made infamous headlines as a "broom-closet romp" that lasted "all of five seconds" while Becker was still married to now ex-wife Barbara, with whom he also has two children.

As news of Anna's existence broke, it caused quite the scandal, due to the short "relationship" between her parents. Becker even tried to deny being the girl's father, until a paternity test made it difficult for him to do so.

Becker has since owned up to his part in Ermakova's genetics and shares custody with her mother.

"I could not be prouder of my daughter. Her mother does a great job," he said after the show to the cameras.

However, it was her age rather than her parents that has many people talking.

"I think its way too early and I would not have allowed my daughter do that,"  German television actress Natascha Ochsenknecht told Die Welt.
