Yolanda Hadid has revealed how she prepared daughters Gigi and Bella for their supermodel stardom.
Speaking to Australia’s Today Extra, the former model said, “I’ve shot my children since they were born. I always dressed them up, shot them at the barn on the horses.”
Yolanda also admitted that she didn’t want her daughters working until they were eighteen.
“I was always very strict about the fact that I never wanted them to really work until they’re 18 years old,” she said.
“I really didn’t want anybody judging them on the way that they looked,” the famous mother added.
“Now Gigi hugs me and says, ‘Thank you for giving me those two extra years to grow up, be in my flip flops and play basketball,'” Yolanda previously told People.
“Modeling is a tough profession. It’s not for the weak,” she added.
The author also shared what she ingrained into her daughters before they entered the modeling industry.
“Respect is number one. When my girls started, I sat them down and I said, Listen, there are a million girls out there who are as beautiful as you and deserve success as much as you do. You have to be the hardest working girl and show people you care about everybody.”
Yolanda also shared with People, “It’s a superficial business. At the end of the day, looks will come and go, and what makes me proud of my children, more so than even their success, is that they are polite and respectful.”
Gigi and Bella have a brother Anwar, who also models.
