That means Anwar is just 18 years old, although he definitely comes across as more mature.

Anwar is the youngest of the family, but he and his sisters are super close. They're often photographed together!

On Yolanda's birthday, Anwar shared this super sweet snap with the caption "Happy birthday moms!!! Love you ta death! Your the best there ever was and im happy that you are happy and living your best life!!"

4. His real first name is 'Oliver'.

We couldn't tell you why he goes by Anwar, although it certainly is more interesting!

5. He was signed by IMG Models in 2016.

Following in the footsteps of Bella and Gigi, Anwar has pursued a career in modelling. With those Hadid genes, who can blame him?!

The two had been dating since December of 2016, and were VERY public about their relationship on Instagram.

Anwar had a fairly normal upbringing, and played for his football and soccer teams at Malibu High School.

Anwar's hands and arms are covered in interesting markings, something that's not usually as common for models!

9. He's been friends with Kendall Jenner for years.

In 2016, Jenner shared this snap of the two of them with the caption "dibs?". People are speculating whether they've been hooking up for awhile or not.

Just like his mother, and sister Bella, Anwar has been diagnosed with Lyme disease. Yolanda is very passionate about finding a cure, and doesn't want to see her children suffer.
