Last night, Zayn Malik took to Twitter to announce the birth of his and Gigi Hadid's baby girl. He announced to the world, "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful. To try to 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." Gigi posted an announcement to her Instagram as well, writing, "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love."

What's Gigi Hadid's baby's name?
Neither Gigi nor Zayn have shared the name they've given their daughter yet, nor have they shared full photos — which is totally their prerogative. Allegedly though, their child's name is "very special." An insider stated, "They're holding onto as much privacy as they can," but feel "overjoyed" about their daughter's birth. Apparently, it's a lot that we even got a birth announcement to begin with. The insider added, "What Zayn released on social media was more than anyone expected, but he couldn't help it. He's got his two girls and that's all he needs.
Of course, fans want to know, and are super interested whether Gigi (whose father is Palestinian and mother is Dutch) and Zayn (whose father is Pakistani-British and mother is English-Irish) will give their child a unique name. (FYI though, just because you identify with a certain ethnicity or culture, doesn't necessarily mean you have to give your child a name that reflects it.) If they do honor their respective heritages through their child, that's also beautiful. But obviously, the decision is Zayn and Gigi's alone.
I really hope Zayn and Gigi didn’t give their baby a white name 😩— em ✨ (@emilytorr13) September 24, 2020
Gigi Hadid's last name is LITERALLY Hadid....u think that baby is gonna have a white name???— Elias @ DS9 (@goremeat) September 22, 2020
However, if Gigi and Zayn wanted to name their daughter "Betty," we're pretty sure everyone would be all about it. Considering Taylor Swift's "Folklore" album was a stunner and there's so much creativity behind the whole "Betty" story, that would make for fun news. (We're mostly kidding.)
Fans have been scurrying over to both Gigi and Zayn's social media pages in hopes of getting some clues about the baby's name, but the couple has been notoriously private about the whole matter. Gigi only posted a photo of her pregnant in late August, captioning the professional photo, "growin an angel :)."
The most "personal" photo Gigi shared was a week ago, which was a close-up of her baby bump as well as some other photos that show the timeline of her pregnancy. "from about 27 wks time flew," she wrote.
Zayn was even less forthcoming about his growing family. September 10, Zayn shared a Polaroid of himself, writing, "Got some stuff to show ya soon!" He was most likely talking about his music, but maybe he was also talking about his, ya know, human creation with girlfriend Gigi. Gigi Hadid left a comment, simply writing "!!" The couple truly is very sparse with their words.
Another big congrats to the couple and their growing family!
