And her famous family have taken to social media to share super-sweet throwbacks of the model too.

She easily one of our favourite models of the moment, and she’s just celebrated a milestone.

Bella Hadid turned 21 on Monday, and the half-Palestinian model has been ringing in the occasion in true style.

Hadid was pictured enjoying a dinner with sister Gigi, mum Yolanda and friends in New York on the night, where she was treated to a cake and a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday.

 

However the most touching tributes on the day came via social media, with Hadid’s family sending her heartwarming messages to mark her 21st year.

“You are a mirror and teacher of all things fair and equal,” her mother, Yolanda, wrote on Instagram.

“I admire your ability to always see the good in everything and everyone. Never stop shining bright my love, your pure light is contagious.”

Elder sister Gigi also posted a gushing message to her “angelic” sister, telling Bella: “There are no words for how much I love you.”

“You have always marched to your own drum, and you make me so so proud,” she wrote alongside a selection of images of the pair from childhood through to recent times.

“You have a power to empathise with everyone and love always, and you make so many people happy in doing so.”

Younger brother Anwar (who’s also a model because really good genes run in this family) posted his own tribute to the 21-year-old, telling Bella “I love you so much my sister”.

“Thank you for being the best sister ever and for teaching me everything I need to know about life itself,” he added.
