She’s here, everyone!
The most amazing looking newborn the world has ever seen!
The supermodel and former One Direction member welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, Malik confirmed on Wednesday evening via Twitter.
“Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” the 27-year old singer wrote.
“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.”
Hadid then shared another black and white image featuring Malik and their daughter holding hands.
“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love,” the 25-year old added.
No word yet on the child’s name or measurements… or any other details at all, really.
Despite followers around the globe being quite excited over their romance, Hadid and Malik have always been very private about their relationship.
Fans initially speculated that the couple welcomed a baby when Gigi’s dad Mohamed Hadid posted a handwritten note titled “Grandpa’s Heart” on Instagram September 16.
“In the name of God the The merciful I want to say l love you and so proud of you. @gigihadid,” he captioned the post.
Prior to giving birth, the new parents waited out the arrival of their first-born in New York City, hunkering down Hadid’s Manhattan apartment amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Los Angeles native, meanwhile, confirmed in April that she was expecting.
“Obviously, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she told Jimmy Fallon after the news leaked.
She also told the host at the time that she was “craving … everything bagels,” eating one a day.
During this appearande, Hadid expressed her thoughts on being pregnant during quarantine, saying on air:
“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 have been off and on since 2015, but got back together (presumably for good) in January.
“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,” Hadid told V Magazine this summer of her pregnancy.
“Obviously, a lot of people have lost lives due to [the] coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening.
“And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”
What a novel concept, huh???
Hadid went on to say in this interview that she wanted to keep it as personal as possible to really enjoy the moment.
“I just am not rushed to do it,” the modoel explained about sharing much aboout her state 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.”
In other words: Don’t expect an influx of baby photos from Zayn or Gigi any time soon.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t send these two our very best wishes.
Congratulations, you guys!
