Her whirlwind romance with Joe Jonas hasn’t stopped Gigi Hadid from sticking by her mom, Yolanda Foster, with her illness. Lucky for Gigi, even the former Jonas Brother star is helping out, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal.
Gigi Hadid, 20, has been supporting mom Yolanda Foster, 51, as she battles a debilitating illness, and with the help of Joe Jonas, 25, things have been running a little smoother. The kind-hearted guy has been very supportive, even offering to do anything he can to make things easy for his girlfriend and her ill mom, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Yolanda suffers from the crippling Lyme disease, and Gigi has been aiding her mom who returned from Europe recently following medical treatment. Yolanda is all Gigi cares about right now, and because of that it’s all her new boyfriend, Joe, cares about, too.
“Gigi’s main focus right now is looking out for her mom, Yolanda,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Everything with Joe happened so quickly, she didn’t expect it, but she doesn’t want to get too carried away just yet and wants to make sure she spends time with her mom, helping her out as much as she can.”
Because Joe knows how important her mom’s health is to his new girlfriend, the super sweet guy has even offered to help out around the house when he can. This is his way of showing how supportive he is of Gigi and Yolanda, and it’s really shown his new girl how great of a guy he is — especially since most guys would run away at the first sign of trouble.
“Joe completely understands Gigi’s viewpoint, and because of that he is being incredibly supportive. He’s offering to run errands and help out in any way the family needs,” the source continued. “Gigi is so thankful for Joe at the moment, and feels very lucky to have him in her life as she goes through the difficult situation of ill-health in the family.”
Joe Was Gigi’s Shoulder To Cry On After Cody Simpson Split
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, sympathetic Joe was also a shoulder to cry on after her split with Cody Simpson, 18, which eventually won her heart. His supportive nature has really had an impact on Gigi, and she knows she’s lucky to have him around during this difficult time in her life.
“Gigi and Joe realized soon after he reached out to her — after she split with Cody — that they should make a fist of things,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Even when she was together with Cody, Gigi remained very close to Joe. She didn’t see him as often out of respect for her then-boyfriend, but she always considered him a good friend.”
“So, as soon as he offered a shoulder to cry on, Joe became the knight in shining armor she was looking for. Not only did he listen to her woes, she also soon realized that he was a better fit for her than Cody,” the source continued. Aw, Joe sounds like a such a sweet and caring boyfriend. Gigi, you’re so lucky!
Do you think Joe is doing the right thing, HollywoodLifers?
