When I asked my teacher if I could talk about my idol, Gigi Hadid, not only she didn’t know Gigi is a super model but she even thought it was a man!!! Gigi Hadid, that is the art nickname chosen by Jelena Noura Hadid, is one of the most appreciated models of the moment and also a great young mom!
Jelena was born on September 23, 1995 in Los Angeles, California. She is 1.79 m tall, has blue eyes and blonde and long hair.
She’s the daughter of Palestinian real estate operator Mohamed Hadid and former Dutch model Yolanda Foster. She has a sister Bella Hadid and a brother Anwar Hadid, both models.
She graduated from Malibu high school in 2012 , after moving to New York to pursue her studies and modeling career.
Her modeling career began in 2011 when she signed a contract with IMG Models.
She also stars in many advertising campaigns such as Balmain, Tom Ford, Tommy Hilfiger, Moschino, Versace and Fendi alongside her sister Bella.
In 2018, she was elected by Forbes magazine as the highest paid model , earning $9.5 million.
In August of the same year, as unicef ambassador, she went to a refugee camp in Jamtoli, Bangladesh, where 45 thousand refugees fleeing persecution reside.
Hadid began dating former One Direction member Zayn Malik in late 2015. They broke up in November 2018, after 3 years of engagement, and then returned together in December 2019. The couple revealed they are expecting their first child in 2020. The baby girl, named KHAI, was born on September 21, 2020 at home in Pennsylvania surrounded by Zayn and her family.
After five months at the birth of little Khai, Gigi noted details of her natural birth “I was so exhausted that I didn’t even realize that my baby was born.”
