With an impressive runway portfolio and a whopping 35 appearances on international Vogue covers under her belt at the age of 25, Gigi Hadid is undoubtedly the IT girl of the moment.
Her amazing success as a model is unquestionable, and with an Instagram following of 52.8M, she has conquered the industry – one designer label at a time. Having been named ‘Model of the Year’ in 2016 by the British Fashion Council, Hadid’s catwalk career has become a success story for many aspiring models. And just when you’d think a 25 year old could only achieve so much, multiple news sources have revealed that Gigi is expecting her first baby! Family sources have revealed that the model is 20 weeks pregnant, with lots fans now trying to spot a bump from Gigi’s 25th birthday quarantine party.
Entertainment Tonight has revealed that Gigi ‘has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while, as she’s only a few months along. Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year, it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special. The couple and their families are overjoyed’.
Despite the couple having been on and off over the last few years, they reportedly reunited back in December 2019 and have been keeping their relationship on the down-low until Valentine’s Day, when they took it to Instagram to confirm the rumours.
The couple first started dating in 2015, and, to the disappointment of ‘Zigi’ fans, had split up in 2018, but it is now beyond clear that they are stronger than ever, giving us major relationship envy. ‘The couple is very excited’ about the pregnancy. Many fans have started generating gender-reveal rumours following the thread of Instagram posts from the supermodel’s birthday party: followers have jumped to the conclusion that the couple might be expecting a baby boy spotting the blue strings from Gigi’s birthday balloons. Some even suspected that the birthday party could have been a gender reveal party. ‘It was a gender reveal party as well? Also, I think that it’s a boy since Gigi is holding the balloon with the blue strings’ one Instagram comment reads. Auntie-to-be Bella Hadid was, of course, celebrating her sister’s 25th birthday with the family at their Pennsylvania farm. The sister has apparently even helped keep the secret from eager-eyed fans, as she concealed the writing on one of the bags in an Instagram post from Gigi’s birthday with a sunflower emoji.
The sisters’ mother, Yolanda Hadid, who joined both of them at Paris Fashion Week this year, making an appearance at the AW20 Off-White show, has also took it to Instagram to reveal a post from Gigi’s birthday party. ‘Yesterday 25 years ago was the best day of my life, giving birth to you and raising you has taught me the true meaning of commitment and unconditional love’. Fans even suspect that the reason behind the cropped image might be hiding Gigi’s baby bump. Gigi, Zayn and their families are yet to publicly speak about the pregnancy, but we wish them our dearest congratulations – the Zigi baby is bound to be gorgeous!
