Supermodel Gigi Hadid has confirmed she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik.
Gigi confirmed the news Thursday during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
“Thank you so much!” Gigi said to Fallon when he congratulated her on 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…”
“I’m trying [to be present for every part of it],” she continued. “Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it.”
The confirmation from Gigi comes a day after her mom Yolanda Hadid confirmed the news to Dutch TV program “RTL Boulevard.”
“Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press. Of course we are so excited,” Yolanda said in a statement. “I’m excited to become Oma 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.”
A source has confirmed to TMZ that Gigi was expecting and the baby is a girl. (RELATED: Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik Are Reportedly Expecting Their First Child Together)
I was so skeptical about this report, but I think it’s amazing that they are having a child together. I’m assuming they might have wanted to keep it a secret a little while longer, but Yolanda threw that idea right out the window.
I can’t believe her mom just waltzed right to the press and confirmed the rumors, although it is so old Hollywood. Fans these days are much more loyal to the celebrity than the media. If Gigi had remained silent on the matter, we might have never gotten confirmation until the baby was here.
This baby is going to be one of the cutest babies of all time, considering her mom is a supermodel and her dad is a great singer. Big things will be expected of this baby.
