The Hadids, America’s first family in all things modeling and fashion, are made up of the gorgeous and ageless Yolanda Hadid and her three kids, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar, who are all models — successful ones at that. More away from the camera however is Mohammed Hadid, who as a little boy, migrated with his parents from Palestine to the United States. Today, Mohammed is one of the most revered real estate developers in America, having worked on several notable projects including the famous Ritz-Carlton hotels. And with a net worth estimated at $5 million, Mohammed has no doubt done very well for himself.
But unlike the rest of his famous family, Mohammed leads a private low-key life, much similar to the lives his oldest kids lead. And no, we are not talking about Gigi and Bella. Mohammed has two older daughters from his first marriage who are not so much in the spotlight. So yes, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar aren’t the only Hadids on the block. And while there are a lot of fun facts about the supermodels Gigi and Bella, their sisters appeal to also have interesting lives. What do we know about the oldest Hadids? You’re about to find out.
9 Marielle Is The Oldest
Before Yolanda, Mohammed was married to Mary Butler for years until 1992 when they divorced. The former couple welcomed their first child Marielle in September 1980 in Washington DC. This means that Marielle is currently 41 years old, making her 16 years older than Gigi, 17 years older than Bella, and 19 years older than Anwar.

8 Marielle Is Also In The Fashion Industry
Marielle might be far apart from her youngest siblings in age but they all seemingly have one thing in common — their love for fashion. Though it is uncertain what role she plays, Marielle is heavily involved in Hadid EyeWear, a sunglass brand launched back in 2017.
Marielle is also quite the superstar on Instagram with over 280,000 followers who constantly engage her posts with the sweetest comments.
7 She Is A Mom Of Two
Apart from being a big sister to Gigi, Bella, and Anwar, Marielle is also a proud mom of two, a daughter named Collette who is the older of the two siblings, and a son named Colton, born in 2014. Details about the kids are largely unknown as Marielle keeps them out of the spotlight and off social media. It is also uncertain whether or not she shares her children with husband Jack Halloran whom she is currently married to.
With year’s of experience ahead, there is no doubt that Marielle had useful tips to give Gigi on how to work and be a mom at the same time.
6 Alana Is In Her 30s
Mohammed and Mary welcomed Alana, their second child, and daughter on July 27, 1985. This means that she is currently 36 and is only five years younger than her big sis. This for sure explains the great bond that they share.
5 She Is Versatile In The Fashion Industry
Like the rest of her siblings, Alana has an interest in fashion and is successful in her own right. In 2017, Alana teamed up with Mohammed to launch Hadid EyeWear and has since sold hundreds of pieces. She is also reported to be the founder and creative director of La Detresse, a unisex clothing brand.
Alana is also a personal shopper and stylist and previously collaborated with New York’s Fifth and Ninth to design a phone case. Good genes as well, the 36-year-old was once the face of clothing brand Lou & Grey.
4 Alana Is In A Relationship But Not Married
Unlike her older sister, Alana is not married. But this does not mean she’s not in love. The 36-year-old is currently in a relationship with Alex Stickland, a chef in Los Angeles. In celebration of Valentine’s Day this year, Alana dedicated a sweet Instagram tribute reading:
“Happy Valentine’s Day To my person @chefstickland how do I know how I love you? Not because we are perfect but because you make me feel perfect for you! I love you..not because we are always together but because we wish we were. I love you and all the funny stupid ridiculous happy things we do. Just me, you and Filippo.”
3 No Competition Here At All
Following the launch of Hadid Eyewear, critics started implying that Alana was in some sort of competition with her model siblings. Alana however set the record straight in an interview with Grazia Magazine where she said:
“I’m not in competition with my sisters or brother. We all have an innate work ethic and I feel successful – I do a lot of things people perhaps don’t know about, as do my sisters. Famous is not being a success. We are really protective and supportive of each other.”
2 Alana And Marielle Have a Great Relationship With Their Parents
Mohammed and Mary might have split a long long time ago but they both still have great relationships with their kids. The siblings have pictures of their parents splattered all over their social media pages. When they’re not wishing their mama and papa a happy birthday, Alanna and Marielle are letting the world know just how much they love them.
