Before Gigi and Bella Hadid were household names in the modeling industry, their mom was the famous face in the family. Yolanda joined the cast of RHOBH in season 3 and starred on the Bravo series for three seasons. After exiting the show in 2016, Yolanda focused on getting healthy amid her battle with Lyme disease. She went on to write a book titled Believe Me: My Battle with the Invisible Disability of Lyme Disease about her journey. Her reality TV series about the modeling world, Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid, premiered on Lifetime in January 2018. It was canceled after one season. The mother of three also made changes in her personal life. After her divorce from David Foster was finalized in October 2017, she moved on with businessman Joey Jingoli.
Yolanda confirmed in April 2020 that she was going to become a grandmother. “I’m excited to become an Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently,” she told Dutch publication RTL Boulevard at the time, confirming Gigi’s pregnancy. “But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.” Gigi welcomed her daughter, Khai, with Zayn Malik in September 2020
