Our Celebrity Cottagecore Faves, Gigi & Zayn, Just Had Their Baby!

Congratulations are in order for Miss Gigi Hadid and Mr. Zayn Malik who just welcomed their first child into the world!

Zayn announced the news on the 24th of September over Twitter, revealing that he and Hadid had welcomed a baby girl.

In the caption of the adorable photo, which showed the pair’s first child’s five (5) baby fingers holding onto Zayn’s normal sized one (1),—babies be like that, huh—Zayn wrote, “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful 🙏🏽❤️.”

“To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task,” he continued. “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.”

Awww, talk about cute! No news yet on Zayn and Gigi’s baby girl’s name but we’ll let you know when we do.

New mum Gigi has also celebrated her daughter’s arrival with a sweet post on Instagram. “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love,” the model captioned her post.

Prior to the official confirmation, fans already had suspicions that the cottagecore couple’s child was already born. Earlier this week, Bella Hadid shared a photo—dated back in June but posted recently—of her and her big sis at their country farm home with Gigi’s baby bump and the caption “two buns in the oven.” Then, Gigi’s father and the baby’s grandpapa, Mohamed Hadid shared a letter on Instagram seemingly announcing the baby’s arrival.

But, as of 11:51am AEST time on the 24th of September 2020, we have hard hitting real evidence from Mr. Zayn himself that he and Gigi’s child is out there, literally vibing on this very Earth. 

The 25-year-old model and “Pillowtalk” singer were first romantically linked in November 2015, before a good year of being between “good friends” and boyfriend/girlfriend. Per Glamour, the couple allegedly broke up for a few months back in 2018 and 2019 but, like all classic love stories, have always found their way back to each other and their matching named jars of Nutella (if that’s not love then idk what is).

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s baby girl isn’t the first big celebrity child to come out of quarantine—2020 really said oh you want babies, I’ll give you babies. This year alone, we’ve welcomed into the world Grimes and Elon Musk’s future space colonial prodigy, Syrup faves Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas’s lil baby girl, Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Katy Perry’s Daisy Dove Bloom, Ed Sheeran’s Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran and Emma Roberts’s forthcoming first child

Brb, imagining an AU where all of them are at school together and it’s parent-teacher night…
