Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik are expecting their first child, she’s ’20 weeks along’

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik surprise the world with their reconciliation as they step out on his birthday!

For some reason, I thought Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s latest reunion happened a long time ago, but no. Gigi and Zayn were broken up for most of 2019. She even dated that dude from the Bachelorette for several months in the late summer/early fall. Then Gigi and Zayn got back together in late 2019, and they’ve been together ever since. I think. So… yeah, she’s pregnant. They’re expecting their first child. He’s 27, she’s 25. They’ve easily broken up five times already over the years, but this is the first time a makeup has involved a pregnancy!

Gigi Hadid is pregnant, and the dad-to-be is her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Zayn Malik … TMZ has learned. Family sources for the couple tell us … Gigi is 20 weeks along. It’s unclear if they know the sex of the baby yet, but both of their families are very excited. The supermodel shared some celebratory photos with the former One Direction singer this past weekend, but they weren’t baby related … they were birthday pics. Her sister, Bella, was also in the shots, and Gigi said she had the “sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family.”

She’s been staying at her family’s Pennsylvania farm during the coronavirus lockdown, and obviously Zayn’s there too. The couple allegedly rekindled their relationship in December and were spotted together in NYC in January, fueling rumors they were fully back on. Zigi fans got confirmation on Valentine’s day when Hadid posted a photo of Malik from December captioned, “HEY VALENTINE … Z on the farm.”

The 2 first started dating in 2015, before announcing a split in March 2018. The 2 years from then until now included countless rumors of getting back together … but now it’s official.

[From TMZ]

Twenty months along means roughly five months. Meaning, she got pregnant within weeks of getting back together with Zayn. I mean… no judgment on all of this, obviously, they’re all adults and they’re rich as hell and the baby is going to be gorgeous. I sincerely hope Gigi is doing well and living as stress-free and healthily as she can at the moment, and I truly hope that everything is fine with her and her pregnancy. I also feel like Gigi is more “ready” for this kind of life change – she’s more organized, she’s more centered. I worry that Zayn… just… won’t stick around. But if he doesn’t stick around, the good news is that she won’t have to mother a baby and a boyfriend. Anyway… congrats to them.

Here are some pre-lockdown pics of Gigi in February & March. She was already “dressing pregnant.”

    If that is considered dressing pregnant then I have been pregnant for 20 years!

  2. ChillyWilly says:

    Oh boy…well, I like GiGi, so I hope he sticks around. Definitely going to be a pretty baby!

    • minx says:

      I’ve always like her, she has such a cute lively face. Congrats to them, whether they stay together or not.

  3. B says:

    This doesn’t bode well for her career.
    Congrats though.

    • Carobell says:

      Not to be to harsh, but at 25 she is at unfortunately at the older end of runway modeling.

      She’s a name though, so I’m sure she will get some level of work.

      She’s rich, her family is rich, he’s rich. I’m not worried for this child’s financial future

      • Murphy says:

        You’re right. She’s done with serious modeling. This could be a valuable reinvention for her, she’ll be just fine.

    • MellyMel says:

      She just did an interview where she said she doesn’t plan on modeling forever. She’s fine.

    • Michael says:

      I bet she leans into her fashion design skills and starts a high fashion maternity line or childrens line. She is super smart and pretty ambitious. However if she wants to model there are plenty of mothers who are very successful models too like Doetzen Kroes and Candice Swanapole. She has plenty of options. Although frankly I was sure it would be Bella who had the Whoopsie Baby with The Weeknd. Gigi will be a fantastic mother and maybe this will make Zayn step up finally and become a grown responsible man

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        “Gigi will be a fantastic mother and maybe this will make Zayn step up finally and become a grown responsible man”

        Great, so she can look forward to parenting two kids. It is grossly unfair that this child is being born into the job of making a grown man act like an adult. Women and kids deserve better than having to improve men.

      • Michael says:

        Why do people continue to use words like “fair?” Life is not fair or equitable. Gigi should not have to parent two children but guess what? They are pregnant now fair or not. Hopefully Zayn grows up but there is no guarantee and I do not think Gigi is blind to this. She is doing what she wants to do in the end,

      • Zapp Brannigan says:

        “They” are not pregnant, she is. She is the one that will take the career risks of having this baby. She is the one that will take the physical risks associated with pregnancy. He will continue on as he is.

    • Alexandria says:

      Good looking, wealthy and well-connected people like her will have options or another career. Kylie made it, so can she. She has had a good start in life and can build on it. Congratulations and have a smooth pregnancy Gigi.

    • Jules says:

      I think her career will be fine, unless fashion as a whole goes down the drain with this pandemic. Which it very well may.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        She certainly can still do photo spreads if she wishes. I’d imagine all the travel and time invested in runway modeling would be a big negative once she becomes a mother.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Eh, I think she’ll be perfectly fine. Plenty of models have come back to the business after having kids, and this woman is one of the nepotism ‘models’. She has connections and privileges to keep going longer than most other models. If she doesn’t get back into modelling, it’ll be most likely be her choice rather than a serious career decline.

  4. Nanny to the Rescue says:

    The first photo: How to make two very attractive people look fugly with nothing but horrible clothes.

    Congrats for the baby, tho.

    • Dali says:

      Absolutely!!! In very few years, they will probably be very embarrassed about these pictures.

    • clomo says:

      I was looking at his jacket thinking how crafty, and her suit looks like lime green polyester but I know the color has some fancy name and it’s made of a cashmere blend.

      • Nanny to the Rescue says:

        I don’t doubt these clothes are expensive.

        But his jacket, while it costs more than my house, is basicly my couch duvet, and she got her oversized ensemble with that turtle-neck straight from my aunt’s closet (my aunt’s a bit of a clothes hoarder and hasn’t thrown anything away since the 80s, to which this clearly belongs). Hideous. 🙂

  5. Alissa says:

    I actually screeched what because the surprised me so much. this will be a gorgeous baby, but I don’t know how well it bodes that they’ve been so on and off and got pregnant right away. yikes.

    • Allz says:

      I always laugh when I see that comments like this because two attractive parents will not guarantee a cute child. Plenty of famous parents prove this.

      Zayn has been lost for years so I do for the child’s sake hope he sticks around.

  6. McMom says:

    That baby will have some pretty genes. That’s all I’ve got.

  7. theothercleo says:

    To me the question here is not “will Zayn stick around?”. I mean, I can’t really picture them together in a couple of years (I hope I’m wrong) but it’s not related to Zayn in particular or even the baby . It’s just that they’re a couple in their mid-twenties who spent the last few years breaking-up/making-up. This type of relationship generally ends as people age and now that they’re having a child, they’ll have to deal with their issues.
    Anyway, they’re going to have a very cute baby, congrats!

  8. emmy says:

    Why did I think they’re both still early 20s? Anyway, I hope they make it work and he’s grown up since he dumped his first fiancée via text or whatever it was. She seems like she has her head on straight so congrats!

  9. MellyMel says:

    I’ve always liked them together, so I’m very happy for them. I find Gigi and Zayn to both be so pretty, so that child is seriously going to be gorgeous. Congrats!!

  10. truthSF says:

    They’re almost 26 and 28. They’re young but not too young to be parents. I wish them well, but even if they don’t last, they and the baby will be more than ok!

    • FHMom says:

      That’s what I was thinking. They aren’t that young and are both also financially well off. Congrats on the baby. It will work out.

    • Allz says:

      She literally just turned 25 but I do get what you mean. I think it seems young mostly because Hollywood has babies later in life.

    • Erinn says:

      I find this is the age people in my ‘real life’ seem to get serious about kids. Obviously some had them earlier, and some later, but 25ish seems to be a common age here for a first kid.

  11. Rachel says:

    He seems like such a sad sack to be around. Mr. doom and gloom.

    • smurf says:

      Thank you, I never got the appeal for him. I hate going all “smile, you’ll look prettier”, but he just seems like a perenially depressed guy who just doesn’t enjoy life (either because he’s just sad or because he thinks it’s cool, who knows…). Honestly, I’d be bummed if I had to share my life with someone who just sucks the energy all around him.

      • Chica says:

        so no one is gonna talk about the years of racist abuse he’s been subjected to as a public figure?

  12. Sophie says:

    That baby is gonna be beautiful.

  13. Bishg says:

    I’m shocked by the pregnancy announcement. When Gigi posted that picture from her birthday celebrations I couldn’t help but notice how unhealthy, pale and frail Zayn looked.

  14. anniefannie says:

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Zayn because of the way he spoke of Gigi post break up you, could tell he genuinely adored her. That’s going to an off the charts gorgeous baby’!!

  15. TIFFANY says:

    So is Harry the only 1Der left that is not or will be a parent?

    I think so.

    • Ninili says:

      You forgot about Niall.

      • Tiffany says:

        Riiiighhtt??? Poor Niall, he really is the Danny Wood of One Direction.

      • mimi says:

        Actually Niall is doing quite well for himself as a solo artist and makes surprisingly good music and is, at worst, probably the 2nd most popular individual member of the group behind Harry. I don’t even know who Danny Wood is but I assume the comparison is not a flattering. (sorry for the 1D fangirl rant)

      • Veruca Salty says:

        Niall is definitely NOT the Danny Wood of 1D! Like Mimi said, he’s prob 2nd most popular 1D-er at worst. Some might even say his solo career has been more successful than Harry’s.

        Just had to put in my two cents about that! And also, Danny Wood rocks!!

      • Carmen Sandiengo says:

        I agree that Niall is not the Danny Wood of 1D, he’s doing quite well. But by what metric is his solo career more successful than Harry’s? I don’t really see it in terms of charts, but also not when it comes to being a household name and such. A lot of my friends, who were never 1D fans or particularly interested in pop music know at least vaguely who Harry Styles is and know one or two of his solo songs, but I’m not sure they’d recognise the name Niall Horan.

        But he’s a lovely bloke, I like that he plays his pretty good with a guitar and piano, I feel he has a lot of potential.

      • Genessee says:

        To the person above who has no idea who Danny Wood is…


        That is all.

    • Leriel says:

      Niall too doesn’t have a baby yet

      • Sesame says:

        I have this massive love for Niall Horan (this is speaking as someone who was oblivious to the 1D phenom when they were together! But the fella really blossomed since). I love an underdog, I think the only thing he hasn’t attained (yet!!) is similar household name recognition on par with Harry but his music is really solid. Let’s be real he and Harry are keeping it wrapped and not becoming dads anytime soon 😅.

  16. Veronica S. says:

    They’re both wealthy, so…even if they split, they’ll be fine. It’s easy to be careless about protection when you’re still in that happy early stage where it seems love will fix anything, and I think likely more so for people with their level of economy because they’re assured they’ll be fine no matter if they break up. I only find it a little surprising when it’s a young model getting pregnant just because of the damage it can do to the body, but I suppose plastic surgery can fix a lot these days.

    • VKES says:

      sad to say but at 25 Gigi isn’t a young model. Jourdan Dunn had her baby at 19, that’s a young model.

  17. Case says:

    I feel bad, but my first thought was “wow that’s a terrible idea.” Just because of how unstable their relationship has been. But as others have said, they’ll make it work. They have the money and resources, and they’re going to have a gorgeous baby. And I like Gigi from what I know of her. I wish them the best.

  18. Mika says:

    Public service to the world: while one may be pregnant, one needn’t have a baby.

    A baby is a strange thing to have by accident.

    • HMC says:

      I became pregnant accidentally, even on birth control (it happens). But by the time my son was born, he was well planned for.

    • prettypersuasion says:

      seriously? a public service announcement telling women to have abortions?

      • Silver Charm says:

        A public service announcement reminding people they have a choice.

      • Allie says:

        I don’t know about the US but most of the time abortions past the 12th week need to have serious medical reasons and are otherwise illegal. She’s supposedly 20 weeks along.

  19. Tiffany :) says:

    I wish they were able to break the news instead of TMZ. I wonder how G and Z feel about it coming out this way.

    • Cinnamon says:

      What makes you so sure they didn’t leak this info to TMZ themselves?

      • Tiffany :) says:

        It is possible they did, but TMZ uses disgusting and illegal tactics regularly, so they do not get the benefit of the doubt. They have earned the side-eye they should get on every story.

      • Silver Charm says:

        My guess is it was her mom, Yolanda.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I’d think that Yolanda would prefer to have a cute “break the internet” kind of announcement on social media with glowing photo. A reveal on TMZ without photos lacks the flair that a momager would love.

      • Silver Charm says:

        @Tiffany very good point!

  20. Awkward symphony says:

    I’m 29 and have cousins who already married at her age so I think its fine. The timing is great for her professionally as all the modeling gigs are cancelled at the moment and if the situation remains dire we might have to keep self isolating until next Jan!! That will give her plenty of time to nurture herself and hopefully bond with the baby before all the hoohah!! On a side note I think they are planning a low key wedding. They’re not religious but Zayn’s family is and might want it

    • Andrea says:

      I have had cousins married and divorced by their 30’s. I dunno, I find most of the time, before 30 is too young to get married and have babies. I know too many people on their second marriages/baby momma/daddies when they are in their 30’s(family and friends alike). Most 20 something marriages seem like starter marriages because they don’t seem to really know themselves yet. I am 39 and have been to more marriages that have ended in divorce than stayed together. I am not married yet but I know that had I married one of my exes in my 20’s, it most assuredly would have ended in divorce.

  21. Hildog says:

    We’re going to be baby buddies! Lots a
    of babies are going to be born this fall- I just hope the hospitals are up for it. I grow more and more concerned every day as I am not due until November. Which is also when I hear the second (third, fourth, fifth?) round of this virus will be ramping up.

  22. SM says:

    Oh my…. what a mess. Will they manage not to break up before this child is born? I know the child will be loved and taken care of and the financial security won’t be an issue but a family stability probably won’t be one of those things. Or maybe this will change the sleepy member of one direction. Here is hoping.

    • Fleur says:

      Yeah,I admit to being shocked she got back together with Zayn because he appeared to have a lot of issues, and it looked on the surface to be a really codependent relationship. She seemed to be doing more fun and outdoor things when she wasn’t romantically involved with him.

      Anyway, I’m very surprised, they both read very ‘young’, but I’m sure they can hire support staff and I wish them well.

  23. Amelie says:

    Congrats to them, it’s a weird time to be pregnant but it’ll be one well dressed baby that’s for sure. I think they’re a fine looking couple but I don’t find either of them drop dead gorgeous and probably in the minority there.

    I doubt they will stick together in the long term, Zayn seems to be broody and to need his space but I do think when they inevitably split up for good (maybe they’ll have one more kid together during a makeup period), he will be a good father and coparent and not be absentee dad. He seems reliable in that way.

  24. L says:

    They’re rich. They’re insulated from the stresses of children, career changes, etc. This will just be a fun little adventure for them.

  25. Laurie says:

    They’re rich and young. I think this will work out for them. I’m really curious to see what the baby will look like cuz they’re both really attractive.

  26. hs7 says:

    “20 months along” hahahahaha
