Linda Evangelista received a very special gift this holiday season: a granddaughter!

"It’s official. I am now a granny," the supermodel wrote on her Instagram as she introduced baby Raffa to the world. "In 1987 I received such a gift of forever love. That gift has given me a blessing."

Raffa's mom, Roxanne Marie, is Linda's former step-daughter. In 1987, Evangelista married agent Gerald Marie, who was already father to Roxanne at the time, W Magazine reports. Despite divorcing Marie in 1993, Linda and Roxanne have remained close. 

Evangelista is also mom to Augustin James Evangelista, who was born in October 2006. Like any proud mom, the model has shared cute snaps of her son on her Instagram:
