From Top Model to Motherhood! See Gigi Hadid’s Total Transformation Over the Years

Considering Gigi Hadid is one of the most popular supermodels in the world, it’s no surprise she’s a pro at transforming her look — on and off the runway! The Los Angeles native has changed so much since her early days on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Gigi appeared alongside her mom, Yolanda Hadid, and sister Bella Hadid on the Bravo reality TV series from 2010 to 2015. In 2020, the fashionista was gearing up for her greatest role yet: motherhood!

Life & Style confirmed in April 2020 that Gigi and her off-again, on-again boyfriend Zayn Malik were expecting their first child together. “They can’t wait to become parents,” a source gushed at the time. At first, Gigi’s family was “shocked” by the news. “[They] didn’t know what to think when she first told them [about the pregnancy] … but now, they’re excited,” the insider explained. “Seeing Gigi so happy makes them happy. They’ve welcomed Zayn into the family.”

While Gigi and the former One Direction singer have mostly kept out of the spotlight, the blonde beauty finally debuted her baby bump for the first time in July 2020. “There’s my belly, y’all. It’s there,” Gigi laughed during an Instagram Live.

Two months later, the Vogue cover model and the former boy-bander welcomed their daughter, baby Khai. “To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task,” Zayn wrote alongside a photo of the newborn gripping his finger in September 2020. “The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine and thankful for the life we will have together.”

A second insider revealed to Life & Style in October 2020 that the new parents’ first month with their baby was “better than they could’ve imagined.” The source added, “Gigi and Zayn were so excited for this baby, and now that she’s finally here, it’s been amazing.”

The A-lister has also been really secure in her postpartum body since becoming a mother. “I know that I’m not as small as I was before, but I also am a very realistic thinker,” she told Vogue in April 2021. “I straight up was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll shoot a Vogue cover, but I’m obviously not going to be a size 0,’ nor do I, at this point, feel like I need to be back to that.”
