Just days after celebrating her 25th birthday together in isolation, reports are flying in that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are expecting their first child together.
“Gigi and Zayn are expecting their first child together and the couple is very excited!” Entertainment Tonight’s ~source~ shared. “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.”
TMZ, meanwhile, shared some more details in that ‘hey how do u know that’ way, revealing that Hadid is “20 weeks along” and that “both of their families are very excited.”
Hadid and Malik have been on-again, off-again since 2015, and recently confirmed their on status when Hadid shared pictures of them celebrating her birthday at her mum’s Pennsylvania farm.
And the story of their are-they-aren’t-they status is quite a ride. After first being linked together in late 2015, the supermodel and singer dated steadily until early 2018.
However, their split didn’t last long. Hadid and Malik were back on by the end of the year… only to split again in January 2019. Then, again, they were back on at the end of 2019, something they didn’t formally confirm until early this year, when Hadid started sharing IGs of him again.
But no one can deny these two are very into one another. Between the splits and the reunions (tho, sadly, not of the One Direction variety), Hadid and Malik have been pretty open with their relationship, attending events together, wearing copious amounts of each other’s merch and, oh yeah, Malik getting Hadid’s eyes tattooed onto his chest (seen below, between the nips).
Maybe the baby news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, anyway. Hadid has spoken about wanting to start a family before… in fact, she spoke about it just last month.
“I think that as I get older… well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modelling,” the model told i-D, “I love the creative side of fashion, it’s so fulfilling. The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking!”
Neither Hadid and Malik have publicly commented on the news. Congrats tho!!!
