Yolanda Foster

“Character isn’t what you have, it’s who you are.”

“Don’t tell me you’re my friend, act like one.”

“I like to have fun, but I don’t play games!”

Birthday: January 11th, 1964
Sign: Capricorn

Yolanda was born and raised in Papendrecht, a small farmer’s town in Holland where she rode horses, milked cows and loved the farm. She grew up rather fast after her father passed away when she was just seven years old and, feeling the need to provide for her brother and her single mom, she became a dishwasher at the local Chinese restaurant at the age of 13. At age 16, she was discovered by world-famous modeling agent, Eileen Ford, and left Holland to become an international model living and working in Paris, Milan, Hamburg, Sydney, Tokyo and eventually New York City. In 1994 she moved to Los Angeles and started her family with former husband, Mohamed Hadid, with whom she has 3 children, Gigi, Bella and Anwar. On the mystical day of 11-11-11, Yolanda married the love of her life, producer, songwriter and 16-time Grammy Award-winner, David Foster. They currently live in Malibu where Yolanda juggles a blended family of her own children plus five stepdaughters. After getting the kids off to school, she puts in a full day at the office running her company, Hopelessly Romantic, a creative one-stop destination to help men and women “get wise and keep their romance alive!”

    I am a big fan of Yolanda’s. I saw her daughter is an equestrienne, (as mine was, she rode about 6 months in Echten, Holland after graduating from high school) and I would like to ask Yolanda if there may be any possibility of Yolanda wanting to help me with a fundraiser for some carriage horses here in Antigua, Guatemala? I live in Guatemala, but will be in Los Angeles on the 21st of April until the 27th. If there would be any possibility of meeting with anyone from her team, so I could explain myself (and what I do for the horses) a little more in depth. Thank you so much, Suzanne

      Dear Yolanda,
      I have never sent an email to a person on TV before. But I was very touched by your post re Brandy’s difficulties and your remembrances of your own dark times. I have had a hard time myself. My husband suffered a mental break 6 years ago and though I tried to save our marriage – very much for the sake of our son – I was not successful. Now, my son’s father lives all the way across the country. It is so hard. Fortunately, I have created a new career for myself and am supporting our family. It is so odd to email someone I’ve never met, but but here I am. Thank you for not succumbing to the viciousness.
      Best,
      Adrienne
