Preternaturally gorgeous couple Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have welcomed their first child to the world. The baby girl was born sometime over the weekend. Her name has not yet been revealed.
The singer and former One Direction member announced the birth of his and supermodel girlfriend Hadid’s daughter on his social-media accounts, writing, “Our baby girl is here, healthy, and beautiful. To try to put into words how I’m 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, and thankful for the life we will have together.”
Gigi posted about their daughter shortly after, writing on Instagram beside a black-and-white picture of her big hand and the baby’s little hand, “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
Hadid confirmed she and Malik were expecting in an April 30 interview with Jimmy Fallon and kept a pretty low profile after that. In July, Hadid wrote on social media that she’d largely abstained from sharing glimpses of her pregnancy because she believed other issues — like the pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement — deserved more of her attention.
Hadid, 25, and Malik, 27, have been dating on and off since 2015. Rumors that Hadid had given birth surfaced earlier this week after she posted a series of throwback photos of her baby bump, but the couple didn’t confirm the news until Wednesday.
