“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world,” the model, 25, captioned her Wednesday, September 23, Instagram reveal. “So in love.”
In the Los Angeles native’s social media upload, the infant grasped her mom’s thumb.
As for Malik, 27, the former One Direction member tweeted that it’s “an impossible task” to describe his emotions after the little one’s birth.
The “Pillowtalk” singer explained, “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful. … 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 is pregnant, and she and Zayn are so in love,” a source exclusively told Us at the time, noting that she “always wanted to start a family” with the American Music Award winner.
Another insider added, “She’s so excited to be a mom and so happy to be pregnant and to be embarking on this new journey of motherhood, especially with Zayn by her side. … It’s clear that he and Gigi have such a strong connection and so much love for each other.”
Hadid kept her baby bump under wraps until three months later when she gave a glimpse of her bare stomach during an Instagram Live. Last month, she went on to share maternity shoot photos of herself “growing an angel.”
The Tommy Hilfiger designer tweeted in August that she “loved” modeling with her budding belly on display. “I knew what I wanted from the pics and [Gabriella Karefa-Johnson] and [Luigi and Iango] really made it happen for me but was definitely more tiring than working normally,” Hadid wrote via Twitter at the time. “Got through the second look and was like, ‘Guys, I think I can only do two more.’ Hahaaaa.”Listen to Us Weekly's Hot Hollywood as each week the editors of Us break down the hottest entertainment news stories!
