Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are reportedly expecting a child. TMZ was the first to break the new, while US Weekly and Entertainment Tonight now claim they've also heard the news from unnamed sources. Notably, People, the most careful of the major celeb gossip outlets, has not yet confirmed the reports. TMZ claims Hadid is about 20 weeks along.
This may not be the biggest curveball 2020 has thrown us so far, but we still didn't see it coming.
Hadid, 25, and Malik, 27, first met in the summer of 2015. At the time, Malik was just a few months removed from his departure from boy band One Direction. Hadid, meanwhile, was on the verge of supermodel status, but was still making occasional appearances on her mother's reality show, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The pair seemed steady for a number of years. Hadid appeared in one of Malik's music videos. He got her eye tattooed on his chest. They split a cover of American Vogue. Then, in March 2018, the pair announced their breakup in joint social media postings. Though, rumors of reunions persisted, and by December 2019, the news was that they were most definitely back on.
Earlier this year, Malik appeared in a campaign for Martyr, the jewelry line designed by Hadid's brother Anwar. Then, last week, Hadid included an image of Malik on her Instagram, confirming that they were social distancing together at her mother's farm alongside her sister Bella Hadid.
