Yolanda Hadid might want to cover her eyes on this one—then again, as a former model herself, she understands a provocative pose here and there is sometimes just part of the job.

Just to play it safe, though, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star's daughter Bella Hadid playfully apologized to her mom for Instagramming a sexy, topless picture from behind-the-scenes of a "secret project" she's working  on with a "dream team" consisting of photographer Russell James and stylist Elizabeth Sulcer. Nineteen-year-old Bella captioned the photo, which shows her in thong underwear and not much else, "Sorry mama."

Like we said, though, Yolanda gets it! All three of her children (Bella, Gigi Hadid and Anwar Hadid) have followed in her footsteps and broken into the business themselves. Knowing what the industry can be like, though, Yolanda made a conscious effort with her kids—and especially her daughters—to teach them that modeling wasn't the end all, be all for their lives.

"I remember taking Gigi to New York City, and before we went to an agency, she looked at me and said, 'But what if none of the agencies want me?'" she recalled in an interview with Glamour magazine. "I said, 'Well, that's great. You're going to school any way to study criminal psychology at the New School, so it doesn't really matter. If you can have a side career in modeling while you're studying that would be great. But if not, that's OK too.'"

She discouraged modeling for Gigi and Bella when they were younger, too. "I always felt that I didn't want the world to judge her on the way she looks," Yolanda explained. "I always had a very strong sense that I wanted both my girls to develop as real people and who they are individually as women, rather than being judged on their [looks]. I think that's really damaging for any child. I always felt very strongly about that, and I was very strict."

That seems to have served the Hadid kids well.
