Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber was spotted strolling in Los Angeles with her pal Rachel Sennott this week.
Kaia, 21, who followed in her mother’s footsteps in the fashion business, was walking her rescue dog Milo.
She and Rachel just starred together in the upcoming movie Bottoms, which is billed as a “lesbian fight club.”
Kaia adopted Milo in 2020, joining the many Americans who have brought pets home amid the loneliness of coronavirus lockdowns.
Since around late 2021, she’s been involved with 31-year-old Austin Butler, who shot to new heights of fame last year in the lead role in the biopic Elvis.

Her latest sighting comes after she covered the February issue of Elle and responded to the ‘baby nepo’ fury in the magazine.
“I won’t deny the privilege I have,” she told the fashion publication. “Even if it’s just the fact that I have a very good source of information and someone to give me good advice, that’s why I feel very lucky.”
Kaia, whose mother rose to international stardom as one of the iconic models of the 1990s, said: “My mum always joked, ‘If I could call and book a Chanel campaign, it would be for me and not for you. But I also met amazing people thanks to my mother who I work with now.
However, she insisted that an entirely separate situation is in effect when it comes to her acting career, which includes the upcoming Apple TV+ series Mrs. American Pie starring Carol Burnett and the movie Bottoms.
“With acting, it’s so different. No artist is going to sacrifice their vision for someone’s child. That’s just not how art is made, and that’s what bothers me. interests is art,” insisted Kaia.
“Also, no one wants to work with someone who is boring, hard to work with, and not nice. Yes, nepotism is prevalent, but I think if it was really what people claim to be, we would see even more of it,” she said.
Bottoms, slated to premiere at South By Southwest next month, reunites Shiva Baby director Emma Seligman with her leading lady Rachel Sennott.
“I was a fan of Emma because I saw Shiva Baby, and I was like, ‘Nobody’s ever done anything like this. It’s so funny, sad, real and touching,” Kaia said.

The film she was referring to was a dark comedy starring Rachel as a college student who shockingly meets her sugar daddy at a shiva, a Jewish funeral tradition where the bereaved family mourns at home for a week.
Kaia gushed that Emma “had such a strong point of view, and I just, immediately, said, ‘What else is she going to do?’ Same with Rachel. I just thought that she was so good at it, funny and real. I always loved her stand-up.
Social media has recently been agitated by ‘nepo babies’ who are said to have made careers in showbiz due to family ties.
Kaia is one of a huge glut of rising starlets with celebrity parents, from Johnny Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, to Andie MacDowell’s daughter, Margaret Qualley.
Maude Apatow, whose father is Judd Apatow, and Maya Hawke, whose parents are Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, have also risen to fame in recent years.
Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni Klum and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough are also in attendance.
The online chatter surrounding “nepo babies” reached a fever pitch in December after the New York magazine ran viral coverage of the phenomenon.
Dakota Johnson, whose parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith and whose grandmother is Hitchcockian blonde Tippi Hedren, was one of the faces on the cover.
