Gigi and Bella Hadid on social media consider the death of their Dutch grandmother, Ans van den Herik. Yolanda Hadid’s mother died at the age of 78.

“Rest in paradise”

“Rest in paradise”, Gigi wrote on Instagram with a photo in which her grandmother kisses her as a child. In another photo she said: “Our angel fought cancer six times in her life, with courage, strength and dignity, while she remained the best mother and grandmother. She showed us the way and we will always carry her in us “We love you more than we can express words,” says the model, who calls her grandmother “beautiful, wonderful Grandma.”
