Cindy Crawford is getting sappy in her latest Instagram post. The supermodel celebrated International Women’s Day with a heartfelt message and sweet photo of her mom, Jennifer Sue Crawford-Moluf, and grandmothers, Dorothy Montgomery and the late Ramona Crawford.

“So grateful to be have been surrounded by strong and loving women since the day I was born and I continue to value my female friends, my sisters, and my mommy friends,” she captioned the Thursday post she shared with her 7.3 million followers. “Women allow me the space to share and be vulnerable and get support.”

The Meaningful Beauty co-founder wore a light blue off-the-shoulder top with puffy sleeves that cinched at the wrists.

“My friends especially see me through a lens of kindness,” she continued. “They remind me to try to see myself through that same lens 🙏🏻#InternationalWomensDay.”

“Missing grandma today,” her sister, Lindsay Crawford, chimed in the comments. “Such a great pic of her.”

Crawford shares two children, Presley and Kaia, with her husband, Casamigos co-founder and former model Rande Gerber.

She recently celebrated her 57th birthday with her whole family and shared adorable pics to commemorate the event.

“When all you want for your birthday is this… ❤️,” she captioned a post on Feb. 20.

Kaia has been following in her model mother’s footsteps and has been featured in a number of campaigns over the past few years. The 21-year-old, who is dating Austin Butler, just starred on the cover of Elle’s February 2023 issue.

“Be on time. Take the time to learn people’s names, and be nice to everyone,” Kaia told Entertainment Tonight when asked about advice she has picked up from her mom. “If you’re not grateful and happy to be there, there’s someone who would be. Even when I was really tired, or wanted to go home, or felt lonely, I would remind myself how lucky I was.”

The Babylon star is aware of her privileged family status and weighed in on the trending “nepo baby” discussion.

“I won’t deny the privilege that I have. Even if it’s just the fact that I have a really great source of information and someone to give me great advice, that alone I feel very fortunate for,” she added. “My mom always joked, ‘If I could call and book a Chanel campaign, it would be for me and not you.’ But I also have met amazing people through my mom whom I now get to work with. With acting, it’s so different. No artist is going to sacrifice their vision for someone’s kid. That just isn’t how art is made, and what I’m interested in is art. Yes, nepotism is prevalent, but I think if it actually was what people make it out to be, we’d see even more of it.”
