Gigi Hadid’s tribute for her late Grand Mom!

Gigi Hadid pays homage to late Grandmother who passed away at the age of 76.

It’s a tragic day for the Hadids as they have lost the head of their family. The matriarch of the Hadid family, Ans van den Herik, passed away this week at the age of 76.


The 24-year-old Gigi Hadid took to social media to pay tribute to her late Grand Mom through a series of their black & white heart-warming pictures during their happy days captioning “Our Queen Angel”. In the post, the American fashion model has talked about the strength, courage, and grace of Herik, with which she battled with cancer 6 times in her life. Calling her greatest grandmother and mother, she further writes that she was an honorable guide which the whole Hadid family will carry forever.

Additionally, Bella and Yolanda Hadid too paid respects for their Matriarch. Bella shared some private moments with her grandmom on her Instagram page, calling her queen, spirit animal, an idol. The tribute post was followed by another post, captioned “Forever”, which included a throwback picture of young Bella sleeping peacefully on her Oma’s lap, and another picture of the 22-year-old model beside her Oma, kissing on her forehead.

Bella and Gigi’s Mom, Yolanda also posted pictures on Insta. The actress & former model wrote a lengthy post with an album of monochromatic images of her mother, her “guardian angel mama.” Telling her to rest in peace, she has thanked her Mom for shaping her into the woman that she is, in the post.

Our prayers and wishes are with the family.
