Yolanda Hadid is a socialite and media star who previously dealt with modeling. She is most famed for her part in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Yolanda drew her first breath in Netherlands and her initial surname was van den Herik. She was a salesgirl and waitress before signing a deal with Ford Models. From 16 to 30, she was a successful model who collaborated with many well-known brands. However, in the 1990s, she decided to dedicate all her time to her spouse and children.
Moreover, Hadid presented her memoir in 2017 and had her own TV show Making a Model with Yolanda Hadid in 2018. She was also a guest judge at Project Runway in 2017. Additionally, she is fond of home design and loves growing vegetables in her garden.
In 1994, Yolanda got hitched to businessman Mohamed Hadid. In 1995, they welcomed their firstborn Jelena who is now more famed as Gigi. In a year, she was joined by a baby sister named Isabella. And in 1999, the family expanded by Anwar, the only son of the couple. The marriage of Yolanda and Mohamed was dissolved in 2000.
Yolanda got romantically involved with David Foster in 2006. David was a friend of her first husband and asked him to introduce him to Yolanda after seeing her pictures at his home. The couple tied knots on November 11, 2011. However, their ways parted in 2015 with the divorce being finalized in 2017. Currently, Hadid is in relationship with Joseph Jingoli.
A curious fact: Yolanda suffers from Lyme disease. She speaks about the problem publicly and even wrote about it in her book. The socialite shared that the disease led to her inability to read, write and watch TV as she couldn’t process the information properly.
