Bella Hadid credits her European attitude for eye-catching Instagram posts
Bella Hadid is comfortable flaunting her curves on Instagram because of her mother’s "European" approach to life.
The 20-year-old model – who is known for posing in skimpy outfits on the photo-sharing website – said she has no qualms about flashing her flesh on Instagram due to her mother Yolanda’s "casual" outlook.
Bella, whose mother was born and raised in the Netherlands, told the summer issue of Net-a-Porter magazine: "My mom is very European, so our whole life we were very open about that stuff. It was just more casual."
Bella considers Yolanda to be her "best friend" and has credited the former model with helping her to stay grounded – despite her appearances on ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’.
The dark-haired beauty, whose parents split in 2000, shared: "It was just a job [for her]. She’s been a single mother my whole life."
Earlier this month, meanwhile, Yolanda revealed she is not ready to start dating again, after splitting from her husband David Foster in December 2015.
Asked whether she is now ready to find love, Yolanda – who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012 – said: "You know, I’m still a little shy.
"I’m getting ready, but not yet. I’m just enjoying life, being well. Being up and out and working again. Enjoying my children. You know, life is so full right now. It’s all good."
Yolanda is staying positive about her health and hopes she will one day find a cure for the infection, which put a strain on her relationship with the Canadian musician.
She recently said: "I’m still in treatment and living a very conscientious life. As you know, there is no cure for Lyme disease.
"You know, I’m in remission and I’d like to stay there until I find a cure."
