    Keni Silva, 47 years his junior, was seen holding hands with the Hadid family patriarch, strolling down Rodeo Drive, a street in Beverly Hills famed for its high-end stores and abundance of sports cars. Coincidentally, his new girlfriend is the exact same age as daughter Gigi, who is 27.
    The couple made their relationship officially known two months ago, when they arrived together to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art.

    Keen observers have rightly noted that aside from age, Keni and Gigi also share a striking resemblance.
    With the fact that Hadid has previously dated Maxime Nova, also a significantly younger model who resembles his daughter, two things are clear: He's attracted to that blonde look and the stability of this new relationship with Silva is at least somewhat questionable.

    Silva, on top of being a model, has also featured on the 17th season of reality show Real Housewives of Orange County.
    That said, she still has ways to go if she wishes to match Gigi's popularity. While Mohamed's senior daughter has over 76 million Instagram followers, Keni only has about 17,000.
