Family first. Always and forever, even if you’re one of the hottest and on-demand supermodels on planet Earth.
Back in October last year, the Hadids supported their mother, Yolanda Foster on her journey battling lyme disease at the Global Lyme Alliance inaugural gala and with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ latest episode aired, we finally got to see Gigi Hadid’s tearjerking speech dedicated to her mother.
“Tonight, we are honoring the person that, more than anyone I know, is hope for Lyme disease awareness, my mom,” she said. “For your fight, for your passion, and for making your journey one that will help so many, I’m so proud to honor you with this award.” the 21 year-old supermodel muttered while holding back her tears.
On the same night, Yolanda also announced that her two children Bella and Anwar Hadid were both diagnosed with lyme disease back in 2012.
We’re happy that Gigi’s using her presence in the media to create awareness regarding the matter – like the time she won Masterchef Showdown and donated her winnings to the Global Lyme Disease Alliance.
