18-year-old Joann van der Herik is just your average, beautiful model...who just happens to be first cousins with Gigi and Bella Hadid.

As reported by Cosmopolitan, the Holland-based model just signed with International Model Management and Maxime Models, as a plus size model.

Big thanks to @lexdekam for this amazing photo 👼🏻

van der Herik's cousin status is legit–she and the Hadid sisters are first cousins, as Yolanda Hadid (whose maiden name is van den Herik) and one of van der Herik's parents are siblings. And even though "JoJo" lives in the Netherlands, she and the Hadids make time to see each other pretty often, it seems.

van den Herik often uses her platform as a model to promote body positivity, sharing long captions about beauty, body image, insecurities, and loving herself.

She also has freaking awesome style (no surprise there).

Embrace your curves ❤️ by @lexdekam

Basically, the Hadid-van den Herik family is so genetically blessed that if you don't feel intimidated by their beauty...well, that's pretty impressive. Can you teach me your self-confidence ways?
