It's been a difficult couple of weeks for Yolanda Hadid since the passing of her mother, Ans van den Herik. But The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum is happy to have new boyfriend Joseph Jingoli by her side through it all.
Yolanda celebrated that and all the reasons Joseph lights up her life by commemorating his birthday with one of the first official photos of the couple on her Instagram on September 12. "Celebrating you today and every day... Thank you for being such a beautiful light in my life...... The calm in the middle of my storm and the rock in this most difficult time," Yolanda gushed in a post that featured a collection of photos with her new man. "Happy birthday my love, I pray that each day, love, health and happiness will come your way."
She kept the celebration going in her Instagram Stories by sharing even more photos of her guy, including a peek into his lovely birthday celebration.
Yolanda and Joseph just returned back home to the United States from the Netherlands where she laid her mother to rest on September 4.
Though we've heard rumors that Yolanda had been in a new relationship since last spring, she officially went public with her beau in August when she and Joseph were spotted out in public together for the first time. "Yolanda is dating Joseph Jingoli. He is an investor and CEO in several companies, and the president of The Farm Team, which helps young adults in addiction recovery," a source told E! News last month. "They were set up by mutual friends... They have met each other's kids and everyone loves Joseph."
The insider also revealed that Joseph is a "very driven" businessman and "very down to earth," which is what initially attracted Yolanda to him. "She wants normalcy in her life and Joseph is very stable and humble," the source said. "Yolanda spends a lot of time with Joseph on her farm in Pennsylvania, but they have recently been out in NYC for business and to visit their kids."
Yolanda and Joseph have now been dating for about nine months and are "going strong," she said on Twitter in August. "This much I know is true, that god blessed the broken road that lead me straight to you," Yolanda wrote on Instagram in a post confirming the identity of her mystery man on August 14.
