Model Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik have welcomed a new baby girl into the world, with the model’s pregnancy being heavily watched all over the world. The couple welcomed a new girl and while there’s been no news on the name yet, they did share a picture with their fans.
The off and on-again couple announced their pregnancy at the end of April of this year, sending squeals of delight and cries of doom when many of the ex-boy band member’s fans realized that their chance with Zayn might have fizzled out forever now. Since leaving the band, Zayn Malik has been releasing solo music and building a life with Hadid that seems to be making him happy currently.
When the news of Hadid’s pregnancy broke, it seemed no one was more excited than her parents, who gushed in the press and on social media about the excitement for their daughter’s bundle of joy. The first-time grandparents seemed to be relishing their future roles to the incoming grandchild.
Yolanda Hadid, mother of Gigi, shared her excitement the very next day when the news was first announced. “I can’t wait to become a grandmother. It is quite special, since I lost my own mother so recently, that is the beauty of life: one soul is leaving us and another is coming. We feel very blessed. It’s going well, but we’re still in shock that our little secret’s been leaked to the press.”
While they had been waiting on the arrival of the newest Malik-Hadid, Zayn has been finally getting back to his day job and was in the process of releasing new music. He’d just shared his new single “Better” a few days ago, giving a sneak listen to a snippet of the new R&B-flavored song and even teasing a new video for the track.
While “Better” may be eclipsed by the latest “drop” of a new baby, Malik hadn’t totally been sitting around gaining baby weight with partner Hadid. The video for his single “PILLOWTALK,” which now famously featured the mother of his child, recently has the distinction of providing Malik with a bit of more good news on top of a successful childbirth – the video has now crossed 1 billion streams.
It’s safe to say that Hadid may not be in any more of her baby daddy’s music videos soon, since she just gave birth.
“Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful🙏🏽❤️to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task,” wrote the entertainer on Instagram. Fans even were able to find a dedication, written by Gigi’s father Mohamed Hadid, to his newest grandchild.
“Hello little grandchild, it’s me, my heart as happy as it can be. I wish for you the sun and the moon, I wish for you a happy time. Know Grandpa’s always near, I will do anything, anything for you my dear. When I heard that you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried that tear because I knew my heart would always belong to you.”
