In addition, Crawford, who also has a son Presley, 12, with husband Rande Gerber, talks about the "most cherished gift" her own mom ever gave her. Before she even gets to share, Jennifer starts to tear up. "We talk about this a lot … it's unconditional love. As a kid, to have that, it just empowers you the rest of your life. If you have that, you don't need anything else."

Even though Kaia's new modeling gig is a joint effort with her famous mother, it does comes as a bit of a surprise considering that Crawford put the brakes on her daughter's burgeoning career in January after she posed in a short skirt for Versace's kids line. "At this point, she's too young to pursue a career," said Crawford, who was discovered 30 years ago at the age of 16. "There aren't even a handful of jobs for a 10-year-old girl. But if she's 17 and wants to try it, of course, what can I say?"
See you in seven years, Kaia!
