Long before Gigi and Bella Hadid started taking over high fashion runways, another Hadid was a top model: their mom, Yolanda. The 52-year-old mother of three took to Instagram earlier today to share a sexy bikini photo, reminding everyone that she was the original swimsuit model in the famous family.

In the photo, Yolanda slays in a Frankies Bikinis one-piece suit as she emerges from the tropical water in scuba gear and shows where Gigi and Bella got their model bods. “Conditioning, rebuilding, and getting my strength back one day at a time,” she captioned the photo. Despite an ongoing battle with chronic Lyme disease, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is still incredibly fit.

This isn’t the only snap the former model has shared from her Tahitian vacation this week. The former model shared a Daisy Duke-clad photo in front of a gorgeous sunset, and a bikini snap with her friend and travel buddy.
