Shiva Safai Talks About Her 33-Year Age Gap With Mohamed Hadid and Her Relationship With Gigi and Bella
Second Wives Club star is the soon-to-be wife of real estate tycoon Mohamed Hadid, the father of supermodel sisters Bella and Gigi Hadid. In an interview with Fox News, the 35-year-old model talked about her relationship with the Hadid family and her decision why she joined E!’s new show, where she and other wives will chronicle their relationships with high-profile husbands.
Safai said that she wouldn’t think of entering the show had someone ask her five years ago. However, because she has been surrounded by friends who were on different reality shows made it easy for her to decide to join the Second Wives club.
She said: “…having friends on different reality shows [made me see] it can be a great platform, and with the right show it would be a fun experience… It just felt right and it would show [viewers] the new modern family, the blended family and our everyday struggles.”
When asked about how her relationship with Mohamed started, she didn’t hold back. She said, “…it was an instant attraction. I don’t know if it was his piercing blue eyes that attracted me, but I just found him very different and intriguing.”
They connected via Facebook and then went on dates. “Everything felt so right and it was so comfortable. It was so easy… and I felt that we met each other at the right time in our lives,” she added.
Mohamed proposed to her in Bali during New Year’s Eve. When asked about the wedding date, Safai said: “Well, for that you’ve gotta wait and see the show! I can’t tell you that.”
Regarding her relationship with Mohamed’s children, she said: “Going into a relationship with someone who has kids, you don’t just wanted to get accepted by him, but also by all of his kids.” Safai felt blessed that not only Bella and Gigi welcomed her with open arms, but also by all of his children. She said she’s very grateful.
