Congratulations goes out to both Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik – the rumours are TRUE! They ARE expecting their first child together!  While on The Tonight Show: Home Edition, Gigi confirmed she and Zayn are expecting, “Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms.  We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.”

 

 

 

Jimmy, who’s a father himself, offered some thoughtful advice to the new mom-to-be, “It’s the best news that you could ever have in the entire world, even in this crazy world where any news is kind of good news.  Your news was great news and I will tell you this – tons of people will you give you advice and stuff like that, and they’re like, ‘Oh, they grow up so fast.  Enjoy it.’  And I don’t want to be that person because they are kind of right.  But don’t over do it, but just be present for every part of it.”  Gigi’s response, “Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be home and be together, and really experience it day-by-day.”

 

 

 

Gigi’s pregnancy announcement comes days after her 25th birthday and one day after her mom, Yolanda Hadid, confirmed the news to Dutch Publication, RTL Boulevard, “Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press.  Of course we are so excited.  I am excited to become Oma in September especially after I lose 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.”

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!! 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 ! I will never forget my 25th bday! +++The icing on the perfect quarantine bday was finding out my surprise everything-bagel-cake was made by the one and only Cake Boss @buddyvalastro who I have watched for over a decade. I CRIED REAL TEARS! BUDDY! This is a dream come true. I can’t believe you made this cake for me while the bakery is closed. It means more to me than you know, and when we hopefully meet some day you will truly know that there almost isn’t an episode I’ve missed. 10/10 would be a Carlo’s intern whenever needed. Grateful, honored, your biggest fan.
