THNX @yolanda.hadid !”And the celebrations didn’t stop there! Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week savior posted even more throwback photos of her and baby Bella to her Instagram story.”Don’t look at or touch my custom bestie ever again,” Gigi quipped on a photo from the day her model sister was born.Another shot from Yolanda’s hospital room shows the mother helping a baby Gigi hold Bella, presumably for the first time.
