In case you thought Gigi was easily handed the opportunity to walk the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show yesterday, think again. According to her mom, Yolanda Foster, the 20-year-old model was rejected twice before finally landing the audition this year. Foster tells the Daily Mail, "She's missed it twice; this was her third try, and she pulled it off and got a spot that millions and millions of beautiful women deserve as much as she does. That's a part of the game, though."

If you haven't seen the emotional moment where Hadid drops to her knees upon finding out she's been given a spot on the runway, prepare to grab a tissue. Foster says she's watched it "a hundred times" and that it was "the highlight of a mother's life." There's nothing like having incredible family support by your side, and we'd say Hadid had some pretty amazing cheerleaders in the audience Tuesday.
