Gigi Hadid Admits She Owes Her Modeling Success to Her Rich Parents

year ago

Nepotism in Hollywood is one of the hottest topics online these days. Gigi Hadid, who’s not only one of the highest-paid models in the world but also an heir to the Hadid family fortune, is now offering her opinion on the matter. Let’s learn more about Gigi’s hot take on her place in the conversation, which inspired a newfound respect for the model in us.

Her rise to fame was aided by her family.

The famous model was born to parents Mohamed Hadid and Yolanda van den Herik. Gigi’s father is a successful real estate developer with multiple luxury hotels and mansions to his name. On the other hand, Yolanda has been a star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2012 and has often included her daughters Bella and Gigi on the show, contributing to their stardom.

Gigi signed with one of the best modeling agencies in the world, IMG Models, in 2013 and instantly made a debut during NYFW. Her sister Bella joined her at IMG Models a year later. Since then, the Hadid sisters have taken the modeling industry by storm and still remain some of the highest-paid models in the world.

She admits that she’s had extra advantages in her life.

Some might say that Gigi’s turbulent success can be largely attributed to her parents’ connections, and she admits as much: “I’ve always acknowledged that I come from privilege. My parents told me, ’Just because you have parents who were successful, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t walk into the job being as nice and as hard-working as you can be.’”

Just the fact that Hadid realizes how lucky she is contributes to her success even further because she has to prove that she’s in the industry for her talent. In addition, Gigi prefers to stay humble at all times: “I don’t think I’m the prettiest person in the world.” She also added that she’s open to enhancing her looks if needed: “Some Botox could probably help, but I’m not so obsessed with caring that I want to do anything about it.”

She’s found her additional purpose in motherhood.

Aside from modeling, Gigi remembers to focus on other areas of her life, like her family. Hadid became a mom in 2020 at the age of 25. She absolutely adores her daughter and is happy to have entered motherhood at a young age: “She has already given me so much... I’ve always been quite organized, so having Khai at the time that I did was a blessing. I’m so glad to be a young mom.”
