Gigi Hadid’s pregnancy has been emotional & she’s craving everything-bagels

Gigi Hadid appeared – via video-conference – on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night. The news of Gigi’s pregnancy “leaked” this week and Gigi is still acting like she had no idea how that happened. I mean… Yolanda Foster did it, correct? It was clearly leaked by someone in the family, and I suspect Gigi’s mother. But whatever, it’s not actually that important, I’m just slightly annoyed that Gigi doesn’t get that “the call came from inside the house.” Gigi chatted with Fallon about pregnancy cravings and how the Cake Boss worked during quarantine:

Gigi Hadid is officially going to be a mom! The supermodel, 25, confirmed that she’s expecting a child with boyfriend Zayn Malik in a sneak peek of Thursday night’s at-home edition of The Tonight Show, telling host Jimmy Fallon, “Obviously, we wish they could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support.”

Reflecting on her current situation as she continues to practice social distancing from home, Hadid said her pregnancy is a “nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and to really experience it day by day.” Hadid also opened up about her first pregnancy craving, explaining to Fallon that she has been eating everything bagels with cream cheese so much lately that her family ordered her a birthday cake shaped like the food for her recent 25th birthday.

“In the morning, my family brought out an everything bagel cake, which already blew my mind because my craving has been everything bagels. I eat an everything bagel a day, so I was so excited that my birthday cake was an everything bagel,” she gushed. The cake was made by Cake Boss star Buddy Valastro’s bakery and featured marbled layers and featured her “favorite” chocolate chip buttercream frosting, Hadid said, explaining that she’s been a fan of the TLC show for some time.

“I don’t know if it was my hormones right now or just like quarantine emotional-ness, but I cried every five minutes for an hour every time I thought about that Buddy made my cake,” she revealed. “I couldn’t stop crying. I was just so happy; Honored that he would make my cake during quarantine.”

I’m including the photos from Gigi’s birthday below, along with the Instagrams from Vogue (Gigi and Bella posed for their lockdown issue). Gigi seems to be riding the hormone wave and feeling blissed out, and good for her. That cake from the Cake Boss… I mean, it was nice that her family organized that, but it’s crazy that cake-bakers came out of lockdown to bake a pregnant woman’s cake and then had it delivered to her in Pennsylvania.

    The cake is nice enough but I have heard too many rumors that Buddy is a bit of an a**.

    • LaraK says:

      Yeah, a LOT of chefs / bakers are. I have a few girlfriends in the food industry and they say it’s endemic – just part of the culture.

      • Trillion says:

        as the veteran of more than a few restaurant jobs, I completely agree with this. Lots of cocaine use in the kitchen only amplifies it, and that seemed to be an essential ingredient at every one of those places.

  2. MCV says:

    Wishing them a lot of luck because getting pregnant the same month you get back with someone for like the 4ht time is not ideal.

  3. Tiffany says:

    It would not surprise me if Buddy just did that one himself and had it delivered. It is pretty basic as far as his other cakes go.

  4. Florence says:

    I thought pregnancy made your hair nice?

    • GiaG says:

      She has thyroid issues. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis will mess with your hair.

      • SURFCHICK says:

        I have that as well plus six other autoimmune disorders and yes, it affects your hair. So rude to even mention that. Hope she’s feeling good.

    • Ni says:

      Ironic use of ‘nice’ there. Geez.

  5. Erinn says:

    It’s almost strange that she didn’t get the ‘the call is coming from inside the house’ thing. I’m about 5 years older, and I’ve never watched Black Christmas or When a Stranger Calls, or anything that the quote would have honestly come from because I don’t like creepy stuff lol.

    But it’s been spoofed and referenced CONSTANTLY over the years – I remember understanding the reference as a kid and knowing the basic story behind it. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark had a story about this. 30 Rock referenced it. How I Met Your Mother referenced it. Parodied on Modern Family. Loosely referenced on Friends, The Simpsons, Powerpuff Girls, Rick and Morty, and I’m sure countless other shows that would have been popular.

    As far as everything bagels go – I have a love / hate relationship. I think I have a minor allergy to poppy seeds – my mouth seems to get a little itchy when I eat them. But I LOVE the overall flavor of an everything bagel, so it’s really disappointing. I should probably just try making my own or something and exclude the poppy seeds.

  6. Allz says:

    Of course Gigi has to pretend her family didn’t leak it. Just like she’s always “surprised” and “upset” when the paparazzi are near, even though she totally calls them. It’s all part of the Hollywood game where they act like they are above it all. It’s laughable but common.

    I don’t think 25 is necessarily a young age to have a baby but her and Zayn are clearly not stable and he’s not reliable at all. I bet Perrie Edwards is somewhere breathing a sigh of relief she’s not Gigi right now.

    • S says:

      I think 25 is pretty young! It’s too bad she couldn’t have had until at least, say, 27…..

      I’m glad she has the resources to take care of a baby though and a supportive family. At least she and Zayn have known each other for years, but they don’t seem to have a stable relationship (not so surprising as they’re young).

    • Leah says:

      @allz Going by her social media activity perri edwards is thirsty AF so not sure about that.
      Say what you want about zayn but he’s not thirsty for attention i don’t think someone who constantly posts their every move on social media would have been a great fit for him anyway. He literally lives on a farm now and you hardly see any paparazzi photos of him these days.

      • Julie says:

        I mean…I just checked her insta and it’s pretty standard. Just a handful of posts from this year, nothing scandalous. I can’t find anything on her social media that we need to vilify the young lady for. It seems like your own perception of her is influencing how you interpret her posts. Also, seems like a really angry and negative response to the previous comment. Important to remember that you can be a fan of Zayn and still leave some respect for their ex-partner. But I was the same way about Jesse McCartney when I was a kid so what do I know!

      • Leah says:

        Julie
        Depends what you consider pretty standard I suppose
        If you just checked her insta then you aren’t actually seeing her constant stories that disappear after 24 hours. I am not vilifying here I just pointed out she’s constantly posting about her life and he’s literally a recluse with anxiety and they were never compatible in that sense. Even his ex band mates say he was never comfortable in the spotlight.

        I think your reaction is over the top and hypocritical considering there was no reason to bring up perri 5 years after they broke up and the only reason it’s done is to vilify Zayn , but I guess it’s fair game to villify him constantly…

    • Gah says:

      Gigi lives on my block. And the bowery hotel is around the corner. The paps are out 24/7 and stake out her apt (as do fans). It’s gross and weird. I’ve lived there 7 years and at this point I recognize the paps on sight.

      While I do know they will make a call in her case she’s got unfortunate proximity to a hot spot and a very easy to photograph building door.

  7. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Omg, I ate everything bagels and lox yesterday and could. Not. Stop.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      I ate PBJs with chocolate milk and coneys from Sonic during my first pregnancy. The second one was watermelon. So. Much. Watermelon. My last one was whatever I could keep down, but usually bacon and sausage.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Aren’t cravings funny for different pregnancies? First, lemonade crazy all day every day. Second, a million gallons of milk. Third was nothing but seafood, particularly Vietnamese shrimp rolls from Pei Wei lol.

      • minx says:

        I had HG, and still gained a lot of weight because I was desperate to find something that didn’t taste terrible. I craved Panera lemonade, deli food like potato salad, deli turkey and pickles, tuna and noodles, lots of scrambled eggs.

    • Yellowrocket says:

      Is an everything bagel a brand of bagel or is it a bagel with everything on it? Is it good?

      So many bagel questions

      • Nikki says:

        Type. Literally everything is on it, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion, garlic and salt. All the “dust” leftover from making the other types of bagels.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        It’s herb overload! You can even buy everything seasoning in a bottle now! My kid loves it on…. everything lol.

      • Yellowrocket says:

        Thanks guys the name kept popping up everywhere on U.S sites. Sounds delicious I’m going to look and see do we have an Irish equivalent

      • Trillion says:

        Yes Mabs! When Trader Joe’s came up with the “Everything Bagel” seasoning it changed my life. One of my standard breakfasts is an everything bagel with whipped cream cheese, sliced tomatoes, salt and pepper. I never get sick of it.

  8. Lucy says:

    All I know is that I’m a little over the whole “omg it’s gonna be the cutest baby in the woooorld” thing. Two famous, attractive people procreated. Big deal. Never happened before.

    • MeghanNotMarkle says:

      And wildly attractive people can still have ugly kids. DNA can be a bitch like that.

  9. MellyMel says:

    I’m sure Yolanda “leaked” the news since she was so quick to confirm it, but it is what is. Never been pregnant before, but I love a good everything bagel so I totally get craving those ha! I kinda want to know more about their farm. That cow in the picture is really cute. I wonder what else they have?

  10. Jbird says:

    29 weeks here and bagels were my EVERYTHING the first half of my pregnancy, prior to which I am not a huge bread-eater. we will see if she is having a girl like me! I love that cake so much. Im one of the ”old lady” 1D fans and love Zayn (Harry is bae of course.) I hope he is happy and overcoming some his demons.

  11. Michael says:

    I think Gigi will be a fantastic parent. I am not sure about Zayn but I do not know much about him other than his reputation so maybe he will be fantastic. What I wonder is how can we see the number of “likes” when people repost an instagram post when we can’t see them on instagram? That has always puzzled me.

  12. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    I only really had cravings during my second pregnancy, and that was for watermelon. I couldn’t get enough of it. My first pregnancy I tended to eat a lot of PBJs with chocolate milk and coneys from Sonic. My third pregnancy I had MS so bad that I just ate whatever would stay down. Funny enough, that ended up being either bacon or sausage, depending on the day.

    I’m side-eyeing this pregnancy-after-another-breakup but I wish them a healthy, happy baby.

  13. minx says:

    She seems like she has a supportive family, in case her relationship goes south. Wish her the best.

  14. C-No says:

    Bagels are LIFE. I’ve been making my own in these unprecedented timesTM. Started with plain and picked up some everything seasoning last time I was at the store. Gonna make another big batch tomorrow morning, yay!

  15. LindaS says:

    I think bagels are just hard round lumps of dough with a hole in the middle

  16. Trillion says:

    My husband was always asking what my pregnancy cravings were and seemed disappointed that it was only ever grapefruit. So one day I just invented a craving, just to please him, and blurted out “Banana Cream Pie”, something I don’t think I’ve even tried. He literally ran to the car, peeled out of the driveway, and so proudly returned to present me with a gigantic, gooey banana cream pie. It was too sweet for me, but it was sooooo goofy/romantic. I think he ended up eating nearly all of it. Sympathy cravings? Is that a thing?
