Although the couple hasn't shared many details about the pregnancy, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are expecting their first baby together. The supermodel's mom Yolanda Hadid confirmed the news during an interview with Dutch news television show, RTL Boulevard, in April, following a ton of online speculation. Even after the pregnancy was revealed, however, the parents-to-be have chosen to keep mostly to themselves.
TMZ first reported the baby news when a source close to the family leaked Gigi's pregnancy, claiming that the model was 20 weeks along. While neither Gigi or her on-again, off-again boyfriend Zayn had commented on the news at the time, fans started immediately congratulating the soon-to-be parents on their Instagram accounts.
When is Gigi Hadid's due date?
After news broke that the couple were expecting their first child, Yolanda confirmed her daughter's due date.
"[I'm] still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press," Yolanda told RTL Boulevard (this interview has been translated). Adding, "Of course we are so excited. I'm excited to become Oma [grandma] 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."
TMZ initially reported that the expectant mom was 20 weeks along, which means she is due sometime mid-September. The outlet also reported that the pair are expecting a baby girl.
When did Gigi and Zayn get back together?
According to E! News, Gigi and Zayn reconciled their relationship before the 2019 holidays. So the math does add up (aka she and Zayn probably conceived sometime in December). Now that's one way to get back together with your ex!
The source told E! News, "Gigi and Zayn got back together right before the holidays in December. Zayn has been reaching out to Gigi the last month and she is giving him another chance. She has always loved him and the break between the two was needed. Zayn has been working on his past music and focusing on his health and is in a really good place currently."
Gigi and Zayn first started dating in November 2015 and broke things off March 2018. Although the couple was officially broken up, they remained close, with some sources even spotting them together sometimes.
Gigi has opened up a little about her pregnancy.
In July, Gigi explained via Instagram Live why she had opted not to share pregnancy photos.
"I think a lot of people are confused why I'm not sharing more, but like, I'm pregnant through a pandemic. Like, obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world."
Although Gigi has kept details of her pregnancy private, the mom-to-be clapped back at the notion that she's "disguising" that fact that she's expecting. "@GiGiHadidis yet to post a picture showing her baby bump," British Vogue tweeted in early July. "But her genius disguise gives an insight into her lockdown pregnancy."
To that, Gigi tweeted, "Disguise ....? I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories- not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything. Will be proud and happy to share “insight” when I feel like it, thanks."
She followed that up with, "For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones."

On July 31, the model took to Instagram to share a rare photo of herself and her boyfriend, Zayn. She captioned the kissing shot simply with, "baby daddy."
Do the two plan on getting married? Maybe. Maybe not. That's totally Gigi and Zayn's business. For now, we can just congratulate the couple on their little one on the way — and wish them all the best as Gigi's September due date draws closer.
