She’s growing and showing! Supermodel Gigi Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik are expecting their first child together — and it’s no surprise the fashion-forward 25-year-old and her baby bump are making us smile. After all, the pregnant style maven has been glowing since news of her pregnancy broke on April 28.
It seems as though the starlet’s growing belly is also making the dad-to-be pretty happy himself. An insider told Life & Style exclusively Zayn, 27, is treating the blonde beauty “like a princess” and “constantly asking her if she’s OK and running around after her.” Talk about a doting dad!
The model confirmed they’re expecting on April 30, telling Jimmy Fallon, “We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.” A second source tells Life & Style the couple “found out the sex very recently” — and it’s a girl. Gigi is “ecstatic,” and she’s already been stocking up her daughter’s closet.
The singer is now the third One Direction member to become a father, alongside Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. Plus, the entire situation has really turned things around for the former boyband heartthrob when it comes to his mental health. “Finding out that he’s going to be a dad has put a smile back on Zayn’s face,” the insider added. “He has a more positive outlook on life and really pulled himself together.”
But Zayn isn’t the only one thrilled about the Vogue cover girl’s blessing. “[They] didn’t know what to think when Gigi first told them [about the pregnancy],” a separate source dished about mom Yolanda Hadid and sister Bella Hadid. “But now, they’re excited.”
Though the dynamic duo has seen their fair share of rough roads romantically, it looks as though the Los Angeles native’s family has come to terms with their bond. “Seeing Gigi so happy makes them happy,” the insider added. “They’ve welcomed Zayn into the family.”
At the end of the day, it’s clear that the model and her longtime beau are absolutely smitten at the prospect of having a child to call their own — and we’re just as excited for them. “Despite everything that’s happened between them and all their ups and downs, they’ve come out stronger than ever. They’re in a great place and are madly in love,” the source gushed about how far the couple has come over the years. “They can’t wait to become parents.”
