Today the famous children of celebrities are known as “nepo babys”. It is a term that makes it clear that a person has had more facilities to get fame because of the family in which he has been raised. Here are all those who either have good contacts or even because their parents are known in the same industry have managed to fulfill their dreams. Some of the celebrities who enter this group believe that it is offensive to refer to them in this way already say that they despise them. On the other side, people like Gigi Hadid are not afraid to acknowledge that her parents’ fame has helped her get hers.
The truth is that the entire Hadid family is known worldwide for one reason or another. Gigi and Bella Hadid, her sister, are recognized models, as was her mother, Yolanda Hadid, who was also a star of the reality Housewives of Beverly Hills. The girls’ father is Mohamed Hadid, a well-known real estate developer who has gained recognition for his luxury hotels and mansions in Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, among other places.
In an interview for The Sunday Times Gigi Hadid has not hesitated to answer one of the questions stating that she is a “nepo baby”. She is aware that she comes from a privileged place and that this has helped her a lot in her career as a model and in her role as a mother. Even so, she also wanted to make it clear that this was not the case for her parents, that is why se added: “but my parents made themselves”.
During this same interview she confessed that her parents have always told her: “‘That you have famous parents, does not prevent you from going to work being as kind and hardworking as you can”. Hadid has always listened to these tips because despite of having all the facilities she has needed to be a successful model knows that not all girls have them. She is well aware that some have had to work hard and that they even need their wages to get their relatives through. Therefore, as she revealed a few years ago during an interview for Vogue Australia, she always does everything possible to make her peers see her as an equal. “I wanted to be on the same level as them backstage, to be looked at, respected and to know that my purpose has never been to shade them or take away their position.”, confessed.
Speaking of “nepo babys” in this family we can not only mention Bella and Gigi, but also Khai, the daughter of this second along with the former member of One Direction, Zayn Malik. Speaking about the little girl, Gigi has confessed to this same media: “the only thing that really pisses me off is thinking if I’m not going to be able to experience some activities with my daughter because I’m trying to protect her from the cameras”. This is one of her biggest concerns since she knows perfectly well what she suffered being exposed to the world since birth. This is why now her mother is managing to keep her away from the cameras, but if in the future Khai wants to jump into stardom she will not have anything complicated given the fame of his parents.
