Maybe a runway newbie would be sick with nerves backstage before a fashion show, but when experienced catwalker Gigi Hadid found her stomach in knots, she knew it had to be something else—like pregnancy. Now mom to a baby girl with boyfriend Zayn Malik, supermodel Hadid just revealed more details from the day she found out she was pregnant, and how the women in her life helped her cope with morning sickness (which can strike at any time during the day, unfortunately).
On January 18, 2021, Hadid posted a couple pictures and a video of herself from January 2020, walking in the Jacquemus show. “A year ago, today @jacquemus,” she wrote in the caption. “My baby girl 🥜 was in there 🥺✨.”
Her throwback inspired a fan to ask on Twitter about whether or not she knew she was pregnant at the time, to which Hadid replied, “Yes, I found out the day before the Tom Ford show…I was so nauseous backstage…but I learned I could kinda control it if I continuously ate, so my mom would pack me snacks before each show…bless.”
Moms >>>>> everything else.
In December 2020, Hadid shared a photo from the actual day she found out she was pregnant, looking happy and relaxed in a car:
Her mom, Yolanda Hadid, gave fans a peek at the moment Gigi and Zayn found out their baby’s sex. Just cute moments on cute moments on cute moments with this family.
Hadid also opened up on Twitter about her pregnancy cravings, revealing that she went for “everything bagels/ extra cream cheese…triple chunk brownies for breakfast- sourdough toast & tomato olive oil salad w lots of salt and pepper lol” and ribs the way Malik made them. In Europe, unable to find bagels, she went for bread and cheese, though “Taylor” hooked her up in London. We can only assume she means close friend Taylor Swift, who often stays in London with British boyfriend Joe Alwyn.
Raise a nonalcoholic glass to working moms-to-be. You wore it well, Gigi Hadid!
