PARIS, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Gigi Hadid reunited with stepdad David Foster on Sunday nearly two months after his split from her mom, Yolanda Foster.

The 20-year-old model invited the 66-year-old musician to sit front row at the Versace show at Paris Fashion Week, where Hadid walked the runway alongside Behati Prinsloo and Irina Shayk.

"My first fashion show ever!!! Starting at the top with this one @gigihadid leading the pack!!! It was amazing and so was she!!! #proudstepdad #versace," Foster captioned a photo of his stepdaughter.

Yolanda Foster also showed her support for Hadid on Instagram, writing, "#ProudMommy #WatchingFromAfar." The 52-year-old reality star is also mom to daughter Bella and son Anwar, and called her kids "the best thing" to ever happen to her in a post Saturday.

Foster and Yolanda Foster were together for nine years, and announced their split in December after four years of marriage. The musician is reportedly still paying for his estranged wife's Lyme disease treatment, and defended her to critics following their breakup.

"I have always had and continue to have the utmost respect and love for Yolanda, which is why it is so frustrating to see headlines questioning her chronic debilitating illness," he told Us Weekly.

Yolanda Foster shares Gigi, Bella and Anwar with her first husband, and previously told People she is leaning on her children during her divorce and continuing struggle with Lyme disease. Hadid won $25,000 on MasterChef Showdown for Global Lyme Alliance this month.

"I'm the only one in, of my siblings, my mom and my family, that hasn't been affected by Lyme disease," the model told Entertainment Tonight in October. "What's been hardest for me is just trying to find a way to be their hope and kind of be a strength for them."
