Gigi and Bella Hadid's Cousin Looks So Much Like Them — Yes, She's Also a Model

Is there anyone related to Gigi and Bella Hadid who isn't a model? The stunning pair's 18-year-old brother, Anwar, has been trying his hand at modeling for some time, but it was recently discovered that their cousin is also taking up the family trade, if you will.

Joann van den Herik — or JoJo, as she also goes by — is an 18-year-old model based in Holland. She's got over 32,000 followers on Instagram, and a lot of that can likely be attributed to her posts on self-care and body-positivity. That, and the fact that she's freaking first cousins with two of the most famous models in the world right now.

Since she's already represented by a few agencies, it's likely that we'll start to see a lot more of Joann. Learn more about the rising model ahead.

Joann Is Signed to a Modeling Agency

Joann is currently signed to the Europe division of International Model Management, as well as 12+ UK, a high-profile agency for plus-size models.

She's Also a YouTube Blogger

Joann maintains an active YouTube account, where she frequently shares beauty reviews and life updates with her more than 1,000 subscribers.

Yolanda Hadid Is Her Dad's Sister

Here's how it all comes together: JoJo's dad is Leo van den Herik and his sister is Yolanda Hadid, formerly Yolanda van den Herik. It seems that the siblings are really close, as Yolanda has referred to him as her best friend and "favorite man in Holland."

She Grew Up Alongside Her Cousins

Despite the distance, Joann is very close with Gigi, Bella, and Anwar Hadid. She frequently shares childhood pictures of their memories as a family and spends time with them whenever they're reunited in the same city.

She's Extremely Supportive of Her Famous Relatives

Joann is incredibly proud of her family. Earlier this year, she wrote some kind words about Yolanda's book Believe Me, and she often shares Gigi and Bella's work. "You never cease to amaze me," Joann wrote in reference to Gigi's second Vogue Netherlands cover.

She's a Body-Positive Advocate

Joann is deeply involved in the body-positive movement and will often share candid words of encouragement with her followers. After sharing a picture of herself modeling underwear, Joann wrote, "I was afraid to post this picture and that's why I did post it. . . . Don't try to compare or compete with others, your body is a temple which you should care and love for. Don't let your mind bully your body."
