Earlier this week, the internet was absolutely shook when word began floating around that model Gigi Hadid and former One Direction star Zayn Malik are expecting their first child together. But alas, it appears the rumors are true. During a recent appearance on Dutch celebrity TV show RTL Boulevard, Hadid’s mom, Yolanda Hadid, confirmed the thrilling news herself.
“Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press,” Yolanda said on the show before gushing with excitement for her soon-to-be grandchild. “Of course we are so excited. I’m excited to become Oma in September, especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
The exciting news became public just hours after Hadid made her first Instagram post with Zayn in quite some time. The two recently celebrated the model’s 25th birthday in Pennsylvania with her family, including sister Bella Hadid.
At first, fans didn’t know whether to believe the pregnancy whispers or not. After all, the couple hasn’t been super public about their relationship since getting back together in February of this year. But Hadid confirmed their rekindled romance herself on her Instagram Stories, where she shared a picture of the pair cuddling.
Later that month, Hadid also posted a photo of the “Let Me” crooner on her second Instagram account. “HEY VALENTINE,” she wrote. And last month, as the two began their quarantine together, Gigi also took to Instagram to share some throwback pics of the happy couple.
In other words, if you didn’t believe the baby rumors earlier this week, we can’t blame you. We were skeptical at first, too. But now that her mother confirmed the exciting news herself, we can’t wait for the in-love pair to welcome their new bundle of joy into the world. And like you, our antennas will be up for new info as soon as it becomes available.
