How Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid Are Related

That's right, two of the hottest models of the moment share a family tree.

Thanks to a series of marriages and divorces over the last three decades, Kendall Jenner, 19, and Gigi Hadid, 20, can kind of call each other relatives, as Vanity Fair recently revealed.

We get it, you thought you knew everything there is to know about Jenner and her genetically blessed fam.

But follow along the (beautiful) family tree above for an extended lesson in Hadid and Jenner family history.



Long before Caitlyn Jenner was Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she was married to songwriter Linda Thompson.

Caitlyn and Linda split in 1985. In 1991 they both remarried; Linda to a musician/ producer named David Foster, and Caitlyn to a woman named Kris Kardashian.

As Caitlyn and Kris welcomed baby Kendall to their clan in 1995, a Dutch model named Yolanda was celebrating the birth of a daughter named Gigi with then-husband Mohamed Hadid (still with us?).

In 2000, Mohamed and Yolanda divorced. Five years later, Caitlyn's ex-wife Linda broke things off with David.

In 2011, Yolanda and David were joined in matrimony. Thus, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were united in one big, glorious-looking family.

Now that they're friends and kind of relatives, the models can do fun things together, like party on yachts, go shopping, and set each other up! (Oh wait, they already do that.)

So, when is the family reunion? And what do we have to do to score an invite?
