Gigi's mom, Yolanda Hadid, also recently shared her excitement over becoming a grandma in an interview with Dutch outlet RTL Boulevard. "I'm excited to become a Oma [grandma] 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." According to Entertainment Tonight, Gigi is reportedly having a baby girl.

The news comes just a few days after Gigi celebrated her 25th birthday at home alongside Zayn and her family. The model and the former One Direction singer first struck up a romance in November 2015, and they have been dating on and off ever since. In February 2020, they confirmed that they were back together when Gigi posted a sweet Valentine's Day post. Congrats to the couple on their exciting news!
