Gigi Hadid Is Expecting Her First Child With Zayn Malik
This post was updated on April 30, 2020.
Congrats are in order! According to multiple reports, Gigi Hadid is pregnant. The model is said to be expecting her first child with rumored boyfriend, Zayn Malik.
TMZ was the first to break the news, after multiple “family sources” told the outlet that Hadid is around 20 weeks along. Not long after the TMZ report, Entertainment Tonight also claimed a source close to the couple confirmed that she is pregnant.
“Gigi and Zayn are expecting their first child together and the couple is very excited!” the source told ET. “Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while as she’s only a few months along. Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special. The couple and their families are overjoyed.”
Hadid and Malik started dating in 2015 and kept their on-again, off-again relationship pretty private until their 2018 split. However, the couple reportedly rekindled their romance in the fall of 2019, and they've been spending a lot of time together, especially lately, during quarantine.
Just this past weekend, Hadid posted photos of the two of them, plus her sister, Bella Hadid, celebrating her 25th birthday. “Had the sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family,” she captioned the post.
And now the happy news has officially been confirmed. Hadid appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, April 30, where she went public with her pregnancy. “Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support so,” she told Fallon (virtually). “I’m trying [to be present for every part of it]. Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it.”
It's still unclear if the couple knows the baby's gender, though speculation points to a baby girl. And regardless, both families are reportedly stoked about the latest addition. “Of course we are so excited. I am excited to become Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently,” Hadid's mom, Yolanda, reportedly told Dutch broadcasting station RTL Boulevard. “But this is the beauty of life; one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
One thing is for sure: That will be one beautiful baby! Congrats to the couple. We will continue to update as we learn more.
