It’s a GIRL for Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik!
Zayn, 27, formerly of One Direction fame, announced on Twitter Wednesday that they welcomed a daughter; “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” he wrote on Twitter. “(T)o try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x.”
Later on that night, Hadid, 25, also shared the big news confirming that she delivered their daughter over the weekend.
“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love💕,” Hadid wrote.
Gigi confirmed that she was pregnant during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon in April. Her announcement came after the big news already leaked to the press.
“Obviously, we wish they could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support,” said the supermodel.
Gigi and Zayn have been dating on and off since late 2015.
A source close to the new parents told PEOPLE that they are beyond thrilled to be starting this new chapter together:
“They’ve been through their ups and downs, but neither stopped caring about the other,” a fashion-world source said. “They’ve jumped on the timing of having a baby and are preparing for their new lives.”
Prior to recently, Gigi has been relatively private about sharing photos throughout her pregnancy with fans. However, we did get a chance to catch a quick glimpse of her cute baby bump during an Instagram Live in July. The mega supermodel explained why she was hesitant at first about sharing photos:
“Obviously, I think a lot of people are confused about why I’m not sharing more, but like, I’m pregnant through a pandemic. Like, obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world,” Hadid said.
The new mom stressed the importance of her fans keeping their eyes on the real issues at hand with COVID-19 changing the way we are living our lives around the world and the impact and importance of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Hopefully, the couple will give us a look into their newfound parenthood soon!
Congrats to the happy couple!
