It has be tough growing up as one of the Real Housewives kids. As a child appearing on a high-profile reality TV show, you get your awkward years and tough moments captured on camera for the world to see. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster's daughter Bella Hadid has come into the spotlight recently as a model, but fans of the show know her from long before she was walking international runways.
For a little while it seemed like Bella was stuck in the shadow of her famous family members. Her sister Gigi Hadid is one of the biggest supermodels right now, her step-father David Foster has more Grammys than he can count, and her mother is a former model and beloved Real Housewife. Nevertheless, if you look at photos of Bella Hadid through the years it is clear that she has had a star quality to her the whole time. Yolanda's middle child is super star and always has been.
Yolanda has been on RHOBH for three seasons, meaning Bella, now 19, has been featured since her mid-teens. To take things back a little further, check out some of the throwback pics of the model below.
Winning Blue Ribbons
Bella and her sister Gigi were nothing but smiles as they posed with their blue ribbons at an equestrian competition back in the day.
Cuddling With Mom
Little Bella looked adorable resting on Yolanda's shoulder.
Being An Equestrian With Mom
Yolanda embraced Bella at an equestrian competition. And of course, there's another winning ribbon in the photo.
Dressed Up With Flowers
Talk about flower power. Bella was super adorable with her flower ensemble.
Accessorizing With A Backpack
We can't even see her face in this one, but Bella is still precious in this pic with her little pigtails and backpack.
Modeling From An Early Age
Bella was practicing to be a supermodel when she was a baby. She's cheesing so hard in this photo.
It's hard for me to tell if Bella was into Easter or not, but maybe she was just caught up eating some holiday candy.
Graduating High School
It's hard to believe that one of the most popular models in the world only graduated from high school a couple of years ago.
Signing Her Modeling Contract
Yolanda captured a great moment of Bella officially starting her career as a model.
Enjoying The Outdoors With Mom
Aww. There is nothing sweeter than the loving relationship between Bella and her mom, and this is something that I don't think will ever change.
Bella Hadid may be only 19 years old, but she has grown up pretty quickly before our eyes into a beautiful, hard working, young woman.
