New Delhi: Singer Zayn Malik and model Gigi Hadid became parents of a baby girl on weekend, the couple informed on Thursday via their respective social media accounts. .
Zayn posted a picture holding his baby girl's hand and tweeted, “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful.. 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."
In May, Gigi confirmed her pregnancy in a virtual interview with Jimmy Fallon after rumours were already rife on the internet. "Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited, happy, and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes,”. Gigi said that being pregnant during coronavirus lockdown had its own benefits. “During this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together, and really experience [motherhood] day by day,” she said.
Gigi earlier had a maternity photoshoot which she shared on Instagram as well. “I’ve been trying to document [the pregnancy] well. And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it. I feel like right now I just want to experience it, and I write in my journal a lot,” she said.
Zayn and Gigi, who were together since 2015, officially ended it between them in 2018, however, the couple got back together before the December break last year.
