There was a time before Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid rose the modeling ranks that their mom, Yolanda Hadid, thought they might fall for the boys next door. But, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills #ProudMommy admits that given their A-list status these days, she doesn't think that dating a non-famous beau is possible.
"It's funny how that changed. Because, for instance with Gigi, I always thought she would be with a polo player that's in the barn because that's where both the girls, that's where their foundation is," she explained to The Daily Dish. "And that's what they're drawn to. That's where they find peace, and that's where they relax. But, you know, I think this whole public life — I mean, I don't even understand it because I've been living under a rock for four years, I just live a normal life within my own space. But, you know, having paparazzi following everything you do I think it's only natural for them to gravitate to somebody that kind of has the same life because they're still learning."
Currently Gigi and Bella are both dating guys in the entertainment industry. Gigi is dating former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, while Bella has been spotted with R&B singer The Weeknd since last year. In both cases, their date nights are often photographed by the paparazzi and immediately become public knowledge, which baffles Yolanda. "It's hard to understand or comprehend, how do people find out you're arriving at an airport? How do people know? But somehow today everybody knows everything, even if you don't post where you are," she said. "Somehow it all just evolves and they seem to be handling it the best that they can. But at times it's scary and it's overwhelming to have that part of the business they chose to be in." -Reporting by Megan Segura
