You Will Not Believe What Gigi Hadid’s Real Name Is
The supermodel who has walked down the runways of the biggest brands and names in fashion industry, the one who stole Zayn Malik’s heart and one of the most gorgeous girls in the modelling industry right now, Gigi Hadid is not who you think she is.
The model’s real name may not be known by many people even though she mentioned it in an interview with Vogue magazine three years ago.
“My mom was called [Gigi] as a kid by her mother when she was younger, but only around the house. I was called [Gigi] around the house when I was really young, kind of like how my mom was called it. In first or second grade, there was a girl named Helena and it got confusing with the teacher who had to call out our names, and so the teacher asked my mom, “If I needed to call Jelena a nickname, what would it be?” And my mom was like, “I call her Gigi sometimes,” and the name stuck.”
Her real name is Jelena Nora Hadid. But she is not the first celebrity to have a different name in her career.
Rihanna’s real name is Robyn Fenty, while Miley Cyrus’s real name is Destiny Hope Cyrus.
