If Gigi Hadid wasn't feeling the love on her birthday then we're not really sure what it would take to make her feel special on her big day. On Sunday, the model turned 23, and her equally fab and beautiful family posted tributes to her, with her dad, Mohamed Hadid, pulling out all the stops in a series of throwback photos that even had us feeling nostalgic.
"Up at 4 am to drive Gigi to her games in the rain watching her fly high and not to miss a point or two. Never missed a game. She was fierce she was on point and she was fearless ... proud daddy as I loose my voice screaming and jumping up and down ... sitting between all the mothers and few fathers. the junior olympics games. In Reno .. SD and many places that I have never been to. We traveled and for me to be on her team in the stands. Stopping on the way back at (In and Out Burger) put a big a smile on her face. And my face that she was next to me," he wrote. "Love you gigi You make us all proud of all you do in any field you tackle. Happy birthday my sweet heart @gigihadid."
Not to be outdone, Yolanda Hadid also posted some vintage photos of her little girl. "Happy birthday my sweet Angel...... I pray that each day Love, Health and Happiness will come your way. I'am so proud of the human being that you are and grateful to experience this journey of life with you everyday through the good and the bad," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal wrote. "May all your dreams come true this coming year and let it be filled with joy and laughter."
Oh, you thought her baby brother, Anwar, forgot about her birthday? Think again. "Gigi! I love you so much and am so proud of how hard you work every single day, so proud to call u my sister and i hope this year brings you truth, days off, and maybe a magic pony," he wrote.
Bella also took some time out of her busy schedule to pay homage to her big sister. She wrote, "Happy birthday to my best friend FOR F***ing LIFE!!!!!!!! My role model! My person. I feel so lucky every day to call you my sister. I didn't know anyone could be so generous, smart, funny, talented, hard working, artistic, loving, respectful AND beautiful all at the same damn time!!! You make me laugh until I pee and even when I don't want to smile, you are just about the only person that can make me. Every one that knows you, immediately feels the incredible energy that radiates throughout you. Thank you for always being yourself, nothing more and nothing less. You are my other half & I don't know what I would ever do without you. I love you with all of my heart Squeegee."
And just because he is the best boyfriend in the world, Zayn Malik also shared a tribute to his lady love, AKA his "everything."
Going forward, however, Gigi will have to share her birthday with a swan that was born to her dad's swans.
Best birthday ever?
