Bella Hadid - Angelic Childhood

Nowadays, Bella Hadid is one of the most in-demand models on the scene, but before the catwalks, campaigns, and covers, she was just a tow-headed tot who was a little camera shy. In fact, the model even told mom Yolanda Hadid, “no more pictures mommy,” which is ironic considering her current day job.

The evidence is in these angelic childhood photos, where a young blonde Bella Hadid was already a little model in the making, cheesing for the camera and even showing off an adorable pout when her mom got a little too photo-happy. And while the toddler might not have loved the attention, 20-year-old Bella must be thrilled to have her childhood so well-documented by mom.
