While in her home state of Illinois, the supermodel, 50, visited her 97-year-old grandmother, who is just as photogenic as the ’90s legend. “Loved seeing one of my grandmas, Dorothy Walker in Chicago,” Crawford captioned the smiley pic of the two. “Still beautiful and feisty at 97!”

Of course the Becoming author, who is married to Casamigos Tequila cofounder Rande Gerber, has passed down her genetic good fortune as well. Both her son, Presley, 17, and daughter, Kaia, 15, have followed in her modeling footsteps.

Presley recently posed for CR Fashion Book and walked the runway for Moschino in June 2016, while Kaia has been featured in spreads for Teen Vogue and Love, as well as booking luxe brands like Miu Miu.

Kaia, who shared the cover of Vogue Paris with her mom in March 2016, also landed her first-ever solo cover for Pop magazine recently. “I never thought [I’d be this successful] this early,” she noted in the accompanying interview. “It didn’t hit me until Mum and I got the French Vogue cover — even after that, I was like, ‘Wait, is this really happening?’ I’m still kind of shocked.”
