If you have been hiding under a rock, Hadid is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik. She confirmed the news a few days later during an appearance on the Tonight Show.
“Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited, happy, and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes,” Gigi said at the time.
She added: “It’s a nice silver lining [during the pandemic] to be able to be home and together, and really experience it day by day.”
But despite confirming the news, Gigi has kept details of her pregnancy to a mum over the last few months.
In a live stream on Instagram back in July, Gigi revealed how she had actively chosen not to share too much of her pregnancy journey publically as it is “not the most important thing going on in the world.”
“I think a lot of people are confused why I’m not sharing more,” Gigi told her 57 million followers. “I’ve felt that it’s not really something I need to share apart from with my family and friends.”
“Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus,” she went on. “That was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”
And while she added that she had been documenting her experience and was planning on sharing it eventually, she also did not want to spend her pregnancy worrying about “having to look cute or post something.”
And now, just a few weeks ago, Gigi finally shared a small peek of her life — revealing a series of glowing pregnancy photos on Instagram and writing how she was “growing an angel.”
This past Sunday, Gigi also shared another tiny insight into pregnant life — including what foods she has been craving.
After tweeting that she’d ordered herself an entire box of Sprinkles cupcakes, Gigi also admitted how she’s been craving “supreme triple chunk brownies and make-your-own ranch mix dip with carrots.”
And while she has not outright stated what her due date is, Gigi did give her followers a subtle hint about her due date revealing she was 33 weeks along at the time of her pregnancy photoshoot on July 26.
Currently, that math equates to her being around 39 weeks pregnant — which means we can be expecting baby Hadid-Malik very soon!
