elle– On Saturday night, Bella Hadid celebrated her 25th birthday with her sister Gigi Hadid and younger brother Anwar by stepping out in New York City. A post from Dua Lipa on Instagram showed Bella dancing the night away, following a dinner with her family. But before the adult celebrations began, Gigi posted a sweet at-home photo of Bella with her 1-year-old niece Khai.
“We celebrate you today and every day @bellahadid,” wrote Gigi. “She’s my baby sister but also a firecracker of a spiritual body guard and a forever protector as an auntie. I have so much pride watching you take ownership of your growth and fulfillment, and I know everything that you have created for yourself will bring you the year of joy and light you deserve !!!!!! Can’t wait. 25 ! I love you more every sun-lap.”
The slideshow features Bella holding Khai in her arms, both their faces hidden as they look up at a collection of mylar balloons, and what looks like an amazing feast.
Pictures of Khai are rare, as Gigi believes that the children of celebrities should be offered privacy, both by paparazzi and parents. Two weeks ago, Bella did post a series of images celebrating the toddlers first birthday.
“Happy Birthday to the greatest gift our family has ever been blessed with,” Bella wrote. “I didn’t know my heart could grow this big!!!!You make me smile when I’m sad and make me cry of happiness just because ur alive. I can’t wait to watch you grow into the most perfect specimen of all @gigihadid @zayn thank you for my forever best friend.”
Bella Hadid is still dating art director Marc Kalman, and the two were spotted hanging out in NYC this week. Looks like Bella has everyone important surrounding her for her new year.
