Well it probably comes as no surprise, but Gigi Hadid was a pretty cute kid!

The supermodel, whose birth name is actually Jelena, celebrated her 22nd birthday today and her famous family took to Instagram to post a plethora of touching tributes and throwback photos of the leggy blonde.

Sister Bella Hadid, mom Yolanda Foster, brother Anwar Hadid and father Mohamed Hadid all wrote sweet messages and shared adorable images of the beauty on social media.

Bella, who posted a slew of pics, also wrote a lengthy post to her bestie and big sis: "Happy birthday to my best friend FOR F--king LIFE!!!!!!!! My role model! My person. I feel so lucky every day to call you my sister. I didn't know anyone could be so generous, smart, funny, talented, hard working, artistic, loving, respectful AND beautiful all at the same damn time!!!"

The Weeknd's ex-girlfriend continued to gush, "Every one that knows you, immediately feels the incredible energy that radiates throughout you. Thank you for always being yourself, nothing more and nothing less. You are my other half & I don't know what I would ever do without you."

Gigi's reality star mother also wished her daughter lovely tidings on the happy occasion and noted how proud she was of the "It" girl.

"Happy birthday my sweet Angel...I pray that each day Love, Health and Happiness will come your way. I'am so proud of the human being that you are and grateful to experience this journey of life with you everyday through the good and the bad," wrote the former model. "May all your dreams come true this coming year and let it be filled with joy and laughter. #HappyBirthday #MyLove #22 #ILoveYou #AlwaysAndForever."

The only notable person in her life who hasn't given the birthday girl a shout out on social media is her main man Zayn Malik.

But that's because the "Pillow Talk" singer has spent the day with his lady love! Gigi shared a cute photo of the couple celebrating together.
