Why Baba Hadid Is the Only Hadid You Need to Follow on Instagram

The stunningly gorgeous Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid siblings have inherited some amazing genes from their model mother, Yolanda. But the cover-girls (and guy) can also credit another person for their looks and career, Baba Mohamed Hadid. The property developer has made a name for himself, appearing on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the father of three models, and their half-sisters, Alana and Marielle.

 

The Palestinian American competed in the 1992 Winter Olympics, married three times, traveled across the world and is by far my favorite Hadid to follow on Instagram. Here’s why…

 

 

He rolls with a gang of 5
