In an interview with i-D, international supermodel Gigi Hadid talked about her interbreeding. She comes from a large blended family of three sisters: Bella, Alana and Marielle and a brother named Anwar. Her father, Mohamed Hadid is a Palestinian real estate developer while her mother Yolanda Hahid is a former Dutch model.

Roots on her father’s side for which she says she feels “too white” to claim culture. “In some situations, I feel – or am made to feel – that I’m too white to defend some of my Arab heritage. You go through life trying to figure out where you fit racially,” she said and added: “Is what I am, or what I have, enough to do what I think is right? But then, too, is it enjoying the privilege of have the whiteness in me, right? Am I allowed to speak for this side of me?

With her ex-companion, singer Zayn Malik, the star gave birth to a little girl named Khai, also from interbreeding. “We think about it and talk about it a lot as partners and it’s something that’s really important to us, but it’s also something that we first experienced ourselves,” she said and d adding, “Because both of our parents have their own heritage. We’re this first generation of mixed races, and then it comes with this first generational experience of being like, ‘Oh fuck, I’m the bridge between all of this! “It’s not something that my parents went through or that they can really help me through. It’s something that I’ve always thought about all my life.”
