Gigi Hadid is an American model and television personality. Her siblings are Bella Hadid and Anwar Hadid, who are both also models, with Bella also being an equestrian.

Gigi’s father, Mohamed Hadid, who was born in Nazareth, Israel, is an Arab Palestinian (he is of the Muslim religion, and has said, “I wouldn’t call myself a ‘devout’ Muslim… but I’m very proud of my heritage”). However, Gigi’s sister Bella has said, “He [their father] was always religious, and he always prayed with us. I am proud to be a Muslim.”

Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Foster (née Yolanda van den Herik), is Dutch, from Papendrecht.

Gigi’s paternal grandparents were Anwar Mohamed Hadid and Kharia Daher.

Gigi’s father has said that he is descended from Zahir al-Umar, an autonomous Arab ruler of northern Palestine in the mid-18th century.

Gigi’s maternal grandmother is named Ans. She is pictured here.
