The day is finally here! Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s baby girl has arrived and the happy parents took to social media to make the announcement though they did not share any pictures of their baby.
“Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” wrote Zayn on social media. “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 and thankful for the life we will have together.”
Gigi also shared a picture of her and the baby’s hand and said, “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
Last week, Gigi’s parents Mohamed Hadid and Yolanda shared pictures of a fully pregnant Gigi and expressed their anticipation for their bundle of joy.
Malik and Hadid, who have been dating on and off over the years, reportedly met at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret after-party, where the former One Direction musician recognised the model “from her picture”. In an interview, Zayn revealed that he asked her to have dinner with him at a New York City restaurant called Gemma.
“She’s a very intelligent woman. She knows how to carry herself. She’s quite classy and that. She’s not, like, arrogant in any way, she’s confident. She carries it well. She’s cool,” Malik had said in the interview.
They confirmed their romance in December 2015, though they have had several breakups along the way. Their most recent split happened in January 2019, and the couple spent nearly a year apart before they reportedly began casually talking again 11 months later.
In April, the couple gave fans a surprise when they announced that they were expecting their first child together. While Gigi, initially kept details about her pregnancy off social media, telling fans that she wanted to use her platform to focus on the coronavirus pandemic and Black Lives Matter protests, she later posted a series of black-and-white maternity portraits in August. Hadid was in her third trimester when the photos were taken.
