Gigi Hadid Welcomes First Child With Zayn Malik

Gigi Hadid Welcomes First Child With Zayn Malik

Supermodel Gigi Hadid has become a first-time mum after welcoming a beautiful baby with her long-term beau Zayn Malik.


The singer, 27, announced the exciting news of their little bundle of joy’s arrival on social media.

Taking to Twitter, the new father shared a gorgeous glimpse of her and Victoria's Secret supermodel, 25, newborn.

He wrote: "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful. To 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"

In the black and white photo, Zayn's heavily tattooed hand is seen holding his daughter's tiny fingers, in a first look at the newborn baby.

Back in April, on her 25th birthday, Gigi sent social media into a frenzy when she hinted that she was an expectant mother.


The model's adorable birthday bash was heavily thought to have been doubled as a gender reveal party.

Gigi was seen clutching a number of helium balloons with pink and blue tape attached during the party.

If that wasn’t enough of a hint, pictures of a 'Hello Little One' bag and pink cakes were also spotted in pictures of the party shared on social media.

After much speculation following the birthday bash snaps, Gigi’s beloved mother Yolanda announced that her eldest daughter was in fact five months pregnant.

"Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press," said The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star.

"Of course, we are so excited. I'm excited to become a oma [grandmother] in September especially after I lost my mom so recently.

"But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed," the 56-year-old told RTL Boulevard.

Gigi marked her birthday in lockdown on her family's Pennsylvania farm where she and her beau Zayn enjoyed some downtime away from the hustle and bustle of New York where they reside together.

In recent weeks, the pair have since returned to New York City after enjoying the rural setting of the Pennsylvanian bolthole.


The expectant mother recently opened up on Instagram about why she and Zayn have chosen to keep their pregnancy so private since announcing it publicly in April.

Gigi explained that in light of the current coronavirus pandemic, she felt that her pregnancy didn’t match up to the importance of other things going on around the world.

The star penned: "I'm so grateful for the positive comments and the questions, and wanting to know we’re all good and safe.

"Everything going is great and I love you guys. I do appreciate those positive comments. A lot of people are confused by why I am not sharing more but I am pregnant through a pandemic.


"Obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world. That's the reason I've felt it's not something I need to share, apart from with my family and friends."

She continued: "Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus – that was in the beginning of quarantine and it's still happening.

"And then we moved into the re-emergence of the BLM movement and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that."


Gigi and Zayn got back together in December 2019 following their split in 2018 after a string of arguments and conflicting work schedules drove them apart.

They began dating in 2016 and Gigi was even asked to star in Zayn's Pillow Talk music video.

The lovebirds dated for two years before splitting twice in 2018, then reconciled and haven't looked back since.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
