No more speculation, as Gigi Hadid’s mother – Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Yolanda Foster – has officially confirmed her Gigi’s pregnancy!
“Of course we are so excited,” the 56-year-old RHOBH star told Dutch broadcasting station RTL Boulevard.
“I’m excited to become a grandmother in September especially after I lost my mom so recently.
“But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
Gigi’s father, Mohamed Hadid, also addressed the pregnancy in an interview with Al Jadeed TV on Instagram Live.
“Let me digest it and talk to her first, ‘cause I’m not sure if it’s real or not,” he said, adding that he hadn’t spoken to his daughter since the news became public.
“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.”
At first, fans were convinced that Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik were having a boy. During Gigi’s 25th birthday party – which fans deduced was also a secret gender reveal party – the model was pictured holding a balloon with a blue string, which is conventionally associated with boys.
However, that couldn’t be further from the truth, as an insider has officially confirmed that Gigi and Zayn are in fact expecting a girl!
“At the end of the day it didn’t matter to the couple what the sex was, but now they can prepare for the new addition before she arrives,” a source told Entertainment Tonight.
The source also added that the proud parents-to-be are “over the moon” with the news.
Gigi Hadid mentioned the possibility of having children back in February – which according to the magic of mathematics, would have meant that she was already pregnant…
“I think that as I get older, well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modelling,” she said in an interview with i-D.
“I love the creative side of fashion, it’s so fulfilling. The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking!”
Will Gigi be a stay at home mom to her and Zayn’s beautiful daughter? Only time will tell…
Congratulations again, Gigi and Zayn!
