Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have officially entered the parents club

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have officially entered the parents club. The supermodel and singer welcomed their first child together and mama and baby are doing well.

Taking to social media, Zayn posted about the momentous occasion and confirmed the exciting news. “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” he tweeted on Wednesday, Sept. 23. “To try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love i feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x”- he Tweeted

The new parents have been together on-and-off since late 2015 and confirmed the pregnancy news earlier this year. Gigi shared it publicly in an interview with Jimmy Fallon during a virtual appearance on The Tonight Show.

“Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms,” she shared. “But we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.” She spoke about being pregnant during quarantine saying, “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 and Malik opted to stay on the private side throughout the pregnancy and keep the experience as personal as possible.

“That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously, a lot of people have lost lives due to [the] coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening,” she told V Magazine in July 2020. “And then we moved obviously into the re-emergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

The model also mentioned that she wanted to keep it as personal as possible to really enjoy the moment. “I just am not rushed to do it,” she explained about sharing her pregnancy on social media. “and I feel like, right now I just want to experience it, and I write in my journal a lot, and I just don’t want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and, like, worry about having to, like, look cute or post something.”

Hadid and Malik are surely enjoying their little bundle of joy.
