They say the apple doesn't fall too far from the free and this rings true for a lot of famous models. Some of the world's biggest female supermodels, from Christie Brinkley to Cindy Crawford, have passed on the torch to the next generation.

Their kids have hit the good genes and talent jackpot and they're now putting their winnings to great use. Here are 10 supermodels whose children are also strutting the runway just like their iconic mothers:

After retiring in 1994 to raise her family, model Yolanda Foster passed on the torch to her daughter, Gigi and Bella Hadid.

Long before appearing in Weird Science and Hard to Kill alongside her ex-husband, Steven Seagal, LeBrock made a name for herself as a high fashion and beauty model. At the height of her career, she was the star of a Christian Dior campaign and the spokesperson for Pantene Shampoo, which resulted in the pop culture catchphrase "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful."
