'This didn't just fall into her lap'

Gigi Hadid's mom Yolanda Foster, the very best cast member on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills​, ​ attended the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on Tuesday night in New York with her son, the likewise very good-looking Anwar Hadid, and a trusty tissue. She was bound to get misty, she must have figured, since she cried every time she watched Gigi's audition video.

'​I keep crying every time I see it, because her reaction was just so sweet!' she told the DailyMail.com, estimating she's seen it 'a hundred times.' '​It was probably one of the highlights of a mother's life.' (Well, not my mother's, who I'm pretty sure has no idea who Gigi even is.)

The moment wrought so much emotion because this was Gigi's third time trying out for the show. "'She has worked really hard​,' Yolanda continued. "'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.'

Gigi herself chatted with Refinery 29 about the rejection. 'I didn't get the show last year, but everything happens for a reason, and the timing feels really right,' she said. She also revealed that she's been working out twice a day for a week (fun!) and did cryotherapy the day before the show. This involves exposing yourself to -160 degrees Farenheit (double fun!), which is supposed to help ease pain among other purported benefits.

Well, three years, one bleary-eyed reality star mom, many workouts, some body freezing, many fashion shows, and millions of Instagram followers later, we have Gigi, in all her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, butterfly glory!
