Original story, April 30th, 2020: Speculation has been swirling that Gigi Hadid is pregnant. The first reports came out this week, just a few days after the model celebrated her 25th birthday with her “quarantine family.” Neither Hadid nor her Instagram-official boyfriend, Zayn Malik, have spoken out about a pregnancy. But now that her mother, Yolanda Hadid, seemed to confirm the news, Twitter has gone into full-fledged excitement mode.
Yolanda Hadid just went on record with Dutch TV program RTL Boulevard, sharing her excitement about her daughter’s “little secret.”
“Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press. Of course, we are so excited. I’m excited to become Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently,” Yolanda said, according to a translation from Dutch. “But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
“Oma,” in Dutch means “Grandma.”
As for Gigi’s 25th birthday party with Malik? Fans think that it was much more than that. Eagle-eyed fans started speculating that the celebration was not only a birthday party (featuring that iconic everything bagel cake) but also a gender reveal party.
With keen attention to detail, some zoomed in to notice pink and blue ribbons on the balloons and a gift bag that seemed to match one from Target that reads “hello little one.”
Even Chrissy Teigen joined in on all the alleged baby news excitement to give her congrats to Hadid and Malik.
But then she had an “oh wait” moment realizing that Hadid hadn’t confirmed the news yet.
Because the initial reports stated that Hadid was already five months along, people have also been marveling at the things she did while pregnant. false
Others have pointed out that the baby would have a star-studded family tree.
Hadid and Malik were first linked as a couple back in 2015 and according to ES Magazine, Malik says the two first met at a Victoria’s Secret party. We’ve been following their relationship ever since, from their Met Gala appearances, their joined Halloween costumes, and even their breakups. They’ve made it clear recently that they’re back together, and we wish them all the best.
