Supermodel Gigi Hadid has just revealed she has an autoimmune disease that causes her weight to fluctuate - Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.Forever and always the show of my dreams. @victoriassecret If I could send, through the phone, the energy and emotion that filled the breathtaking Grand Palais as the music started, it would send chills down your spine. I will never be able to put into words how much being in this show means to me and how inspired I am by the people I get to work with. Thank you @ed_razek for believing in me and having me again and for putting so much heart into everything you do. @10magazine @johndavidpfeiffer @monica.mitro and everyone behind the scenes who has put so much time into #VSFS2016, you are so amazing and so appreciated. Can't wait to share this magical show with the world on December 5th! 🌙✨
"My metabolism actually changed like crazy this year. I have Hashimoto's disease. It's a thyroid disease, and it's now been two years since taking the medication for it, so for the VS show I didn't want to lose any more weight, I just want to have muscles in the right place, and if my butt can get a little perkier, then that's good." she told Elle magazine.Gigi Hadid, age 21, is one of the most famous supermodels in the world right now participating in the Victoria Secret runway for a second time this year.
