Gigi Hadid Gets Emotional Saying She’s ‘So Proud’ to Share Stage With Sister Bella at VS Fashion Show

Happy tears! The 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show — filmed this year in Paris! — finally aired Monday, December 5, and it included an adorable behind-the-scenes moment of Gigi Hadid gushing about her younger sister and fellow honorary Angel, Bella Hadid, who made her VS debut this year.

“I have watched the show every single year as a kid, so last year was so special to be able to do it. This year, joining me is my little sister!” Gigi, 21, shared backstage.

And the mutual love didn’t stop there! Bella shared a backstage pic with her older sister via Instagram, with the adorable caption, “I cried when I saw my sister put her wings on for the first time.”

But the most emotional person may have been the ladies’ biggest fan: their mom, Yolanda Hadid. “❤️ Gods timing is perfect,” Yolanda, 52, wrote via Instagram December 1, captioning a pic of herself with Gigi and Bella at the afterparty. “Thank you to my girls for bringing me to Paris to witness this special moment in time.”
