The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid’s son Anwar Hadid has joined his supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella at IMG Models. Gigi and Bella are taking the world by storm right now; print ads, runways, and of course, the tabloids.
While Gigi and Bella waited until they were 18 to sign with IMG Anwar is just 16 years old. Their fame has skyrocketed Anwar to a household name, and he is already a heartthrob. If you remember, Lisa Rinna pointed out her daughter’s major crush on Anwar, a move that got her in trouble at home she confessed on Watch What Happens Live.
Yolanda Hadid posted the good news on Instagram over the weekend. “yolandahfoster: ??It’s official……… ? Signed ?? @imgmodels ? @anwarhadid#SummerJobsComingUp #NYC”
Anwar is no stranger to modeling; he posed for L’Uomo Vogue in January, Seventeen Magazine last year, and a slew of other projects in between He was recently spotted at New York Fashion week on the arm of his mother, Yolanda Hadid. “@YolandaFoster: When your little man starts leading the way……… #NYFW#Family @anwarhadid”
It’s not clear is Anwar will be staying in California, or moving to NYC full time and finishing high school there. Although it does say “summer jobs” we saw how the girl’s careers took off, and there is a very good chance the same will happen with Anwar. If he is moving to NYC maybe Yolanda will become an East Coast girl herself; with her new single status, and all 3 of her kids there it might just be the right move.
Congratulations to the Hadid family during this exciting time and best of luck to Anwar on the next chapter of his life!
