The likeness is stunning. Kaia Gerber is every inch the model of her mother Cindy Crawford, making Cindy, 46, proud and, she confesses, a little jealous.
Asked if she was worried about getting older, the former supermodel replied: ‘Oh, please. I am a normal woman, I have good days and bad days and it’s not really that fun.’
Looking good: Cindy Crawford says her daughter Kaia is getting more and more beautiful
While she says she loves her life and is grateful for her family, she adds: ‘I look at my daughter and I’m like, ‘‘You have my old skin and I want it back! You have my old legs, I want them back! You have my old hair, I want it back!’’
‘She is just getting more and more beautiful and, you know . . .
‘But at the same time, there’s so much good that comes with it. And I think if you’re happy in your life, it’s a lot easier to take.’
Last year Kaia caused a stir when she posed for a Versace photoshoot even though she was just ten at the time – but Cindy defended her decision to allow it.
She said: ‘I thought it was appropriate and beautiful and she didn’t have any make-up on. In the car on the way home she said, ‘‘That was kind of hard.’’
‘It was good for her because she liked doing it, but she also saw that it was work.’
Cindy was just 16 when she was discovered, and the following year was already being represented by Elite model agency.

While still modelling, Cindy is now married to former model Rande Gerber after her marriage to actor Richard Gere failed.
The mother of two confessed that she is forced to rely on the support of her family to deal with the times when she feels low about her body.
Speaking on American TV, Cindy also
opened up about her father, who left when she was at school.

She said: ‘There have been times when I haven’t really been in a place where I wanted him in my life, but it’s not like I didn’t know how to get hold of him.
‘It was really hard for me when he left my mother. So I was mad at him. And then, I think, especially for a teenage girl, that’s hard.
'In some ways, that really affects your relationship with men further on, because maybe you don’t trust as much.’
