As we already know her father is a famous billionaire and it would certainly be a massive overstatement to go and speculate Gracie is anywhere near as rich as him.
Furthermore, she works in marketing and brand development for the Kansas City Chiefs. Even though she has lots of followers and is well on the verge of a financial breakthrough with her ventures, she is yet to cross the ten million mark.
It is estimated that her net worth is around USD 3 million. She is able to earn such a large sum of money mostly through social media, modeling, and advertisement.
But she won’t have to ever think about money as she is born into a super-rich family. She must be living quite a lavish and comfortable life as she can have whatever she wants with the money.
