News of their pregnancy broke on Tuesday, April 28, and it’s been a whirlwind since. However, the couple are using this time amid the coronavirus pandemic to chill out. “Gigi’s really enjoying relaxing in the countryside with her family and Zayn,” the insider adds. “It’s just what she needed after a busy few months.”
The supermodel, 25, and the singer, 27, have been dating on-and-off since 2015. They broke up in January 2019 and reconciled by December of that year. A month later, they confirmed they were back on when they were spotted hanging out in New York City celebrating Zayn’s 27th birthday.
Most recently, Zayn celebrated Gigi’s birthday with her. “Had the sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family, who made it so special for me, along with all the love I felt from all over the world!” the mom-to-be wrote on Instagram on April 24. “Thank you to everyone for the birthday messages, I carried you with me yesterday!!”
The post included photos of Zayn and Gigi’s family, who were “shocked” to find out the pair is expecting. “[They] didn’t know what to think when Gigi first told them [about the pregnancy] … but now, they’re excited,” a second source exclusively told Life & Style. “Seeing Gigi so happy makes them happy. They’ve welcomed Zayn into the family.”
Additionally, Zayn is just as thrilled to become a parent. “Finding out that he’s going to be a dad has put a smile back on Zayn’s face,” a third source exclusively revealed to Life & Style. “He has a more positive outlook on life and really pulled himself together.”
He’s so excited and his relationship with Gigi seems to be in a much better place because of it. The former One Direction member is making sure to pamper his lady during this time. “[He’s] constantly asking her if she’s OK and running around after her,” the insider continued.
We couldn’t be happier for them!
