Once Gigi Hadid exploded onto the modeling scene in 2014, it wasn't long before the public went gaga over her similarly gorgeous sister, Bella, with whom she was frequently spotted (both on and off "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills"). Sure enough, Bella — who's a year and a half younger than Gigi — is currently experiencing a rise to fame that rivals her older sibling's. This season alone, she's walked for Marc Jacobs, Topshop and Moschino, and starred alongside her big sis in the fall 2015 Balmain ad campaign.

As the Hadid sisters have skyrocketed to fame, yet another genetically blessed member of their family has entered the spotlight, appearing with them in paparazzi photos, Instagram posts and the like. Their brother, 16-year-old Anwar Hadid, is a bona fide hunk — and to further drive this point home, he has an editorial in the October issue of Nylon magazine. Yes, folks, there is officially one more Hadid in the modeling game. (Let's not forget their mother, Yolanda Foster, was a model as well.)

His shoot is a family affair: It's part of Nylon's annual "It Girl" issue, which sweetly features his sister, Bella (see below). Though he gives no indication in the accompanying interview that he has supermodel aspirations, his Instagram — which boasts 293K followers — indicates that he's already hanging out with big-name fashion folks like Lucky Blue Smith and is on hand for some of the industry's most exclusive events. Plus, the fact that both Gigi and Bella are signed with IMG Models makes us think he'd be a shoo-in for a contract one day.

Learn more about Mr. Hadid in Nylon's October issue (which is on newsstands now) — and we'd suggest preparing yourself for another member of this already famous family to take over the pop culture scene.
