Meeting your partner's family is always a big deal in a relationship. It's a bigger deal when you meet them at some sort of large family gathering. And it's even bigger when you and your partner are both celebrities. So, the news that Gigi Hadid brought Tyler Cameron to her grandma's funeral is another hint that things are getting pretty serious between the rumored couple. The former Bachelorette contestant was spotted with the supermodel at the funeral of her grandmother, Ans van den Herik, in the Netherlands.
In photos obtained by TMZ, Tyler and Gigi appear to be holding each other close while dressed in all black for the funeral, which was held on Sept. 5 in Rotterdam, South Holland. Other people in the photos include Gigi's sister Bella, her brother Anwar, and Anwar's girlfriend Dua Lipa. Their mother Yolanda was also reportedly there with her new beau Joseph Jingoli. Based on Gigi's several Instagram tributes to her grandmother, it's clear her grandmother was a true matriarch to Gigi and the rest of the family. In one post, Gigi wrote:
OUR QUEEN ANGEL fought cancer six times in her life with courage, strength, and grace while being the greatest mother and grandmother. She is an honorable guide we will carry with us forever. We love you more than words, our beautiful wonderful Oma.
Gigi must be pretty serious about Tyler if she wanted to included him in such a meaningful family gathering. They've yet to publicly comment on their relationship, but there have been several public sightings that all point to the fact that the couple is going strong. According to Us Weekly, Gigi brought Tyler to the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards after-party in New York on Aug. 26. A source told Us Weekly:
Tyler and Gigi were dancing all night. He had his arms wrapped around her and was kissing the back of her neck. They were inseparable. [Tyler] really seemed to fit in with her friend group.
They met for drinks and they got along really well. It was very casual but they were laughing and had a very engaged conversation. They are both taking things slow but have both made it clear they are interested in each other.
It seems like their rumored relationship has only grown stronger over the course of the last month, since Tyler is getting more involved in Gigi's family life. Not only did he attend her grandma's funeral with her, but he's also getting closer to her family on social media. Gigi's sister Bella recently followed Tyler on Instagram, and that kind of seal of approval from a sibling can mean a whole lot, especially when it comes to sisters who are as close as Gigi and Bella are. It seems like Tyler and Gigi are getting more and more serious each day, and it shouldn't be long before they publicly acknowledge their relationship themselves.
