In case Yolanda Hadid‘s official confirmation of daughter Gigi Hadid‘s pregnancy with former One Direction crooner Zayn Malik wasn’t enough proof for you, the supermodel just confirmed the excited news herself on last night’s (April 30) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. And although she wishes she could’ve spilled the beans before the media did, Hadid is clearly tickled pink about this exciting new chapter.
“Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she told Fallon, adding that the news has been a ray of light during these particularly difficult times. “Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.”
Hadid, who celebrated her 25th birthday earlier this week with Zayn and her family, absolutely loved having multiple things to celebrate. And the while the birthday and the baby were certainly the biggest among those things, Hadid was also pretty stoked about her “everything bagel” cake, which was baked by none other than Cake Boss’ Buddy Valastro.
“I don’t know if it was my hormones right now or just like quarantine emotional-ness, I cried every five minutes for an hour every time I thought about how Buddy made my cake,” Hadid said. To be fair, though, we’d probably cry if the Cake Boss made a cake for us, too.
Hadid’s official confirmation came less than a day after her reality star mom confirmed the news on Dutch celebrity TV show RTL Boulevard. “Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press,” Yolanda said. “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.”
