Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid welcome baby girl that’s ‘changed their world’
Written by News on 24/09/2020
Zayn Malik has confirmed the birth of his baby daughter with girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
The former One Direction singer, 27, shared the happy news on his Twitter page, writing: “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful.”
He added: “To try 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 x”.
He also posted an accompanying black and white shot of him holding his baby daughter’s hand.
Hadid, 25, posted a back and white photo and message on Instagram introducing her daughter to the world.
She wrote: “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
The photo she shared showed the baby clutching Malik’s thumb while lying on a bed, with the singer’s tattooed arm in the background.
The British singer, from Bradford, has been dating US supermodel Hadid on and off since 2015.
Hadid confirmed she was pregnant with Malik’s child on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in April 2020.
“Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms,” she said.
“But we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.” Being pregnant during a pandemic provided its own challenges, but the supermodel took it all in stride.
The couple met on the set of Malik’s music video for the song Pillowtalk.
They have since appeared together on the August 2017 cover of Vogue and also did a Versus Versace campaign as a couple, with the supermodel as the photographer.
They are yet to announce the baby’s name.
