Kaia Gerber's modeling career is taking off so quickly even she can't believe it!

Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford's 15-year-old daughter was just named Daily Front Row's Breakthrough Model of the Year, and as she told E! News' Catt Sadler she's completely "blown away" receiving that honor.

Kaia's model mom and dad get some credit for her early success for passing down a great set of genes, but they've also instilled a good work ethic in their daughter. Cindy reminds Kaia of "things like [how important it is] to be on time," said the teen, and that's not where the 50-year-old supermodel's mentoring stops.

Kaia said her mom leads by example, and that's "not, like, specific to modeling." Cindy strives to be a role model to her daughter when the flashing bulbs aren't going off, and Kaia said she's "learned so much" from watching her both on set and in real life.

It seems Kaia and Cindy have influenced each other in terms of personal preferences, too. In a game of "Would You Rather" with Vogue's Snapchat Discover, the mother-daughter duo gave almost exactly the same answers to each question.

Finals week or Fashion Week? Fashion Week, "of course!"

Bikini or one-piece? Bikini!

Spring break or family vacation? Family vacation!

That last answer got an, "Awww" out of Cindy and earned Kaia a sweet smooch on the cheek. "We're the same person," Kaia quipped.
