Yolanda was born and raised in Papendrecht, a small town in Holland. She grew up on a farm, riding horses and milking cows. When she was seven, her father passed away. She was a dishwasher at a restaurant at 14, but by 16, she was discovered by Eileen Ford, and the rest, as they say, is modeling history.

She started her family with Mohamed Hadid in 1994, but by 2000, became a single mom raising her kids and running an interior design business.

Last year, Yolanda married 16-time Grammy Award winner David Foster, and they currently live in Malibu where Yolanda raises her own children plus five step-daughters.
