Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have welcomed their first child, a baby girl.
The One Direction stand-out announced the birth in a touching social media post on Wednesday, calling their precious gift ‘healthy and beautiful.’
‘Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful’ the 27-year-old Pillowtalk singer wrote along with a black and white photo of his heavily tattooed hand holding on to his and the 25-year-old supermodel’s pride and joy.
‘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’
Shortly after mama, Gigi shared her own touching message, writing: ‘Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.’ Friends, family, and fans flocked in to send their love.
Along with a slew of hearts, Hailey Bieber wrote: ‘Welcome baby girl!! So happy for you guys.’ Emily Ratajkowski said: ‘Congratulations Gigi and Zayn’ with several crown emojis. Model Devon Windsor was tickled, sharing: ‘Sooooo tiny and delicious!!!’
Olivia Culpo said: ‘Ahhh!!!!! HUGE congrats!!!!! I can’t wait to meet this angel.’ Fashion designer Jeremy Scott, who often features Gigi in his shows, sent love with emojis. Yara Shahidi and Hailey Clauson sent simple ‘Congratulations!’
Word Gigi and Zayn were expecting first emerged in April after a ‘family source’ sp!lled the beans about the IMG beauty and her on/off boyfriend of five years. Shortly after she confirmed the news herself.
Gigi said at the time: ‘Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support. ‘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.’
Gigi seemed to hint that her child was on the way at the end of August when she shared a stu-nning photo of herself at 33-weeks. At the time it was unclear whether she was counting down from the time of the post or the photo shoot.
