UPDATE (4/30/20 @ 7:15pm ET) Gigi has confirmed she is indeed pregnant! She appeared on a pre-taped segment for the Apr. 30 The 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.
She continued, “Especially during this time. It’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.” Jimmy told Gigi to pass along his congratulations to daddy to be Zayn Malik, and said “Tell him [that] if you guys need anything, call Uncle Jimmy. I’ll make sure you guys are taken care of.” Gigi loved it, telling the host, “We will. We’ll have best Uncle Jimmy.”
Gigi Hadid, 25, isn’t on a model diet these days! The Maybelline face shared a glimpse of her insanely delicious dinner on her Instagram story and revealed she’s got some serious skills in the kitchen. “Tonight. Yummy + easy spicy vodka sauce (have no vodka…but still good),” she began her multi-video Instagram story from April 29, sharing an image of two black bowls filled with orecchiette-shaped noodles covered in a dark-red sauce and grated parmesan cheese. “Recipe for 2 tonight,” she added, implying she was whipping up the homemade meal for her main man and dad-to-be Zayn Malik, 27! The pair are currently quarantined together at her family’s spacious Pennsylvania farm, which was confirmed in her recent 25th birthday post.
Gigi’s mom Yolanda Hadid was known for her impeccable cooking on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and it seems like she’s passed the talent onto her eldest daughter. The Burberry model walked her 53 million followers through the simple sauce recipe step-by-step, which includes basic ingredients like tomato paste, olive oil, shallots, and red pepper flakes, even offering suggestions on how to substitute items you may be out of at home. “I only had red onion tonight, so used a little less than a quarter of one,” she revealed, also advising those who are adding vodka to “cook it until it almost evaporates.” We have a feeling we may be seeing a cookbook in Gigi’s future!
The delicious meal comes just hours after her mom Yolanda confirmed the news that Gigi is, indeed, pregnant! “We are still in shock that our little secret has been leaked to the press,” Yolanda said to Dutch outlet RTL Boulevard on April 29, speaking in her native tongue. “[Her pregnancy] is quite special, since I lost my own mother so recently,” the 56-year-old continued, referencing the death of Gigi’s grandmother Ans van den Herik, who passed in Aug. 2019. “That is the beauty of life: one soul is leaving us and another is coming. We feel very blessed,” Yolanda sweetly gushed, telling the outlet that her daughter is due in September 2020.

In a February interview, Gigi implied that she’s had starting a family on her mind. “I think that as I get older… well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modeling,” she said in i-D magazine‘s February issue. “The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking!” she also said. We can definitely see her doing so, especially after that mouth-watering pasta dish she just made.
News of Gigi and Zayn’s pregnancy comes just five months after they got back together in Dec. 2019, after several years of dating on-and-off again. The model and the former One Direction member have yet to make a statement or post on social media about the pregnancy themselves, but we are waiting and watching for it at HollywoodLife!
