It may seem like Bella Hadid never stops working, but she’s has been making time for family this week. The proud Muslim spent the weekend celebrating the end of Ramadan with her Palestinian family in Virginia before heading overseas for a more bittersweet reunion.
Bella flew to the Netherlands, where her mom Yolanda Hadid is from, to wish a happy birthday to her grandmother who she calls Oma, the Dutch word for grandma. Bella shared a video of her tearful reunion with her grandma, sharing in the caption that her Oma is “battling cancer again.”
“I know for a fact she is the strongest woman I have ever met,” Bella continued. “Times like these are so important to me and I wouldn’t give them up for the world.” Bella apparently took three whole days off from her packed schedule for the special birthday visit.
