We first met Anwar, Bella, and Gigi Hadid as Yolanda Hadid’s children while she was a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.The three siblings have all grown up a lot since their RHOBH days, and now each have their own successful careers. Their father, Mohamed Hadid, recently opened up about what it’s like to have such famous children.
“People don’t look at me as Mohamed Hadid,” the luxury real estate developer dish in an interview with The Times. “They look at me as the father of Gigi and Bella and Anwar and Alana and Marielle.”
Alana and Marielle Hadid are Mohamed’s eldest daughters from his first marriage to Mary Butler.
“It’s dangerous for me to be their father. I have to be very careful. Everything I do is a reflection of them,” Mohamed said of his well-known offspring. “Just being their father is a tremendous burden on me. They were my kids. Now I’m their father. It is what it is.”
“Hello little grandchild, it is me, my heart as happy as can be. I wish for you the sun and moon. I wish for you a happy time. Know that Grandpa’s always near, I’ll do anything for you, my dear,” Mohamed wrote in a sweet handwritten note to his new granddaughter, which he shared on his Instagram account. “When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried the tear because I knew, my heart would always belong to you.”
