Thank you for 100k... Absolutely crazy.

Kaia Gerber isn't just pretty—she's popular, too!

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber's 13-year-old daughter reached 100,000 Instagram followers on Monday, and to celebrate, Kaia uploaded a video of herself wearing red lipstick and kissing a mirror.

The teen called the social media milestone "absolutely crazy."

Though Kaia inherited her supermodel mother's good looks, she isn't allowed to model full-time just yet. For Cindy in particular, it's important that her daughter not rely on her beauty to get ahead in the world.

Before Cindy became one the most sought after models in the world, she had envisioned a different life for herself. As the studious child of working class parents in Illinois, she said, "I finished my senior year out, and because I had worked so hard at my academics, I was able to graduate valedictorian, which was great. That helped me get a really great academic scholarship at Northwestern for chemical engineering. Super exciting! I mean, there's no way that my parents could have afforded to send me to school there."

As Cindy recalled during an episode of Oprah's Master Class in 2013, when she showed up for her first day of calculus, "I caught the professor's eye, and he was like, 'Honey, I think you have the wrong class.' And that made me so mad because it was really the first time in my life that I felt judged by the way that I looked. I did not grow up feeling that I had to prove that I was as good as boys. I just assumed that I was. He just made a snap decision on me: 'If she looks like that, she can't be good at calculus.'"

"I think it set me on a course of 'I have to prove the world that I'm not that,'" she admitted. "I have relaxed that over the years because you just realize, 'Hey, people are going to make those judgments about me or they're not.' But I think it was really important to me—especially then—for people to hear what I had to say and to represent myself as someone who has a brain."

In that same episode, the 49-year-old supermodel also opened up about being a mother to daughter Kaia and son Presley Gerber. "I love being a mom. They don't care that I'm Cindy Crawford. It came at a time when I was really ready for it, too. Like, 'OK, it doesn't have to be all about me anymore,'" she said.

Like her mother, Kaia is comfortable in front of the camera. Luckily, her brother prefers to work behind the scenes, and together, they created the @kbyp Instagram account in 2014 to showcase their talents.
