UPDATE 2 (4/30/20 @ 7:15pm ET) Gigi has confirmed she is indeed pregnant! She appeared on a pre-taped Apr. 30 appearance onThe Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon from home “Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” Gigi revealed, as TMZ played spoiler and broke the baby news on Apr. 28.
UPDATE (4/29/2020 @ 4:19 p.m. ET): Gigi Hadid‘s mother, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid, has confirmed the happy news! “I can’t wait to become a grandmother,” Yolanda gushed to outlet RTL Boulevard, based in her native the Netherlands, on Wednesday, April 29. “It is quite special, since I lost my own mother so recently,” she continued in Dutch, referencing the death of her mother Ans van den Herik, who passed in Aug. 2019 after battling cancer. “That is the beauty of life: one soul is leaving us and another is coming. We feel very blessed,” she added. Although the outlet didn’t provide a direct quote, they report that Yolanda confirmed Gigi is due in September. “It is going well, but we are still in shock that our little secret has been leaked to the press,” the 56-year-old also added.
Gigi Hadid, 25, and Zayn Malik, 27, are expecting their first child together, according to TMZ. And that’s not all. The surprising new report claims the model, who just celebrated her 25th birthday on April 23, is already 20 weeks along in her pregnancy. She had shared some fun photos with her family — and Zayn — on Instagram on April 24, following her big milestone, however, a baby bump wasn’t evident at the time. Gigi has been staying with her mom, former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid, sister Bella, and Zayn at the family’s Pennsylvania farmhouse during the coronavirus quarantine, so it’s nice to know they’re all together during this special time in their lives.
Prior to this news, Gigi and Zayn rekindled their romance in December 2019 (about 20 weeks ago, if you’re doing the math like we are), when Gigi posted a dedication to his mom on social media. The reunited couple were later spotted together holding hands in NYC in January, and that’s when fans went wild over them getting back together. Gigi and Zayn confirmed they were dating again, when she posted a photo of him on Valentine’s Day and wrote, “HEY VALENTINE … Z on the farm.”
Gigi and Zayn first started dating in 2015, not long after he left One Direction, before they eventually split in March 2018. There were always rumors that they had gotten back together after their breakup, but this pregnancy news makes it more official than ever. Congrats, you two!
Prior to dating Zayn, Gigi Hadid was involved in a romance with Cody Simpson from 2013-2015. And prior to Gigi, Zayn dated Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. They became engaged in 2013, before splitting in 2015.
HollywoodLife reached out to the couple’s reps for comment, but we did not receive an immediate response.
