Model mom-to-be! Pregnant Gigi Hadid gave fans another glimpse at her baby bump in a black-and-white maternity shoot.
“Growin an angel,” the Los Angeles native, 25, captioned the Wednesday, August 26, Instagram photos. “Cherishing this time. Appreciate all the love & well wishes. Will never forget creating these special images.”
In the photos, Hadid cradled her stomach in multiple sheer outfits.
Us Weekly confirmed in April that the model is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Zayn Malik. The former One Direction member, 27, “couldn’t be more thrilled” for fatherhood, a source told Us at the time.
The insider added, “Zayn has always been so into Gigi and she’s always been such a big part of his life. Even when there were times that they weren’t a couple, the love was still very much there.”
As for Hadid, a second source told Us that the pregnant star is “so excited” to become a mom. “She’s so happy to be pregnant and to be embarking on this new journey of motherhood, especially with Zayn by her side.”
In June, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model responded to a fan about concealing her baby bump in an Instagram Live video. “This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion,” Hadid explained at the time. “From the side it’s a different story!”
She clarified the following month that she wasn’t trying to “disguise” her budding belly, explaining via Twitter: “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.”
Hadid concluded, “For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.”
Her dad, Mohamed Hadid, posted a picture of his pregnant daughter in July, hiding her baby bump with a fairy emoji.
As for her mom, Yolanda Hadid, the Bravo personality, 56, is “so excited.” The reality star told Dutch publication RTL Boulevard in April: “I’m excited to become an Oma 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.”
