Yolanda Hadid is looking forward to the next chapter of her life. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star confirmed the news that her daughter Gigi Hadid is pregnant by boyfriend Zayn Malik – and shared her thoughts on the exciting occasion. “Of course, we are so excited,” the grandma-to-be told Dutch radio station RTL Boulevard. “I’m excited to become a Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently. This is the beauty of life; one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
Meanwhile, her dad Mohamed played coy in an interview with Al Jadeed TV. “Let me digest it and talk to her first ‘cause I’m not sure if it’s real or not,” he said. “If she is, I’ll be very happy just as long as the baby is healthy and she’s healthy. That’s all I care [about]. I’ll be very proud of her if she has one. As of now, I’m not sure, so that’s why I can’t give an answer.”
Gigi, 25, and Zayn, 27, have yet to publicly confirm their news. However, the supermodel gave fans a sneak peek at her tiny baby bump in a photo shoot she and Bella did for Vogue last month. “Postcard from Home for @voguemagazine (++ getting the shot) March 2020,” she captioned the photo. In the picture, the mommy-to-be poses with her sister Bella. Gigi stands in front of cattle on their family farm in Pennsylvania wearing a Vogue letterman jacket, riding boots and high-waisted jeans.
News of Gigi and Zayn’s first child broke earlier this week. Family sources confirmed to TMZ that the cover girl is about 20 weeks into her pregnancy and that they are expecting a baby girl. Fans believe that the supermodel’s 25th quarantine birthday celebration doubled as a gender reveal party as they spotted pink and blue strings tied to her birthday balloons.
They also noticed a variety of baby themed gift bags in photos posted by Bella. The designer and the Pillowtalk singer rekindled their romance in late 2019. Earlier this year, Gigi opened up about her future in the modeling industry and her desire to start a family. “I think that as I get older...well one day, I’ll start a family,” she told i-D magazine. “And I don’t if it will always be modeling.”
