What do Katherine Schwarzenegger (Chris Pratt’s wife), Lea Michele, and Gigi Hadid all have in common? They are all pregnant and expecting their first child.
After dating on and off for the past few years, Gigi and Zayn Malik are taking the next step into parenthood. TMZ reported that the supermodel is currently 20 weeks into her pregnancy.
“Gigi and Zayn are expecting their first child together and the couple is very excited! Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while, as she’s only a few months along. Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year, it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special. The couple and their families are overjoyed,” an insider said.
The model, who turned 25 last week, thanked her “quarantine family” including the former One Direction star for making this year’s birthday such a special occasion. “Had the sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family, who made it so special for me, along with all the love I felt from all over the world! Thank you to everyone for the birthday messages, I carried you with me yesterday!! ??,” Gigi wrote.
She added, “I am grateful and lucky that my family and friends – near and far – are healthy and safe, and although I missed loved ones I wish I could have celebrated with, know that these times will make us even more grateful for togetherness to be had in the future!”

Here’s a look back at some of the lovey-dovey quotes the new parents once said about each other:
- Gigi on sharing a deeper love with Zayn.
“For the first time, we are both in a relationship where we have very similar interests outside of work and that is really important. We cook a lot together and do art together and we’re each others’ best friends. We both feel we can talk about anything and learn a lot from one another.”
- The pop star couldn’t care less if they were a “power couple”.
“That’s not something I want to be a part of. I’m with her because I like her and I hope she’s with me because she likes me. When we come home, we don’t really talk about that shit. We just spend time together as a normal couple, cook food, watch TV, have a laugh.”
- Gigi on their first encounter: “We played it cool for like ten minutes and then I was like, ‘You’re really cute’. We connected like really quickly. We have kind of the same sense of humor and started sharing videos.”
- Zayn on maintaining their privacy: “We’re adults. We don’t need to put a label on it, make it something for people’s expectations.”
- The positive impact Gigi has on Zayn: “I had a very negative outlook on things. That might have been adolescence or testosterone or whatever the f**k was running through my body at the time. She’s helped me to look at things from a positive angle.”

We don’t know the gender of the baby yet, but this much we’re certain – they’re going to have a gorgeous-looking baby. Having Bella and Dua Lipa as aunts is the cherry on the cake.
