Supermodel Gigi Hadid posted her first-ever maternity shoot photos on Instagram today.
Gigi Hadid, 25, and boyfriend Zayn Malik, 27, formerly of “One Direction,” are having their first child together, a girl due in September.
Gigi captioned the first photo “Growin an angel,” and commented “Cherishing this time. Appreciate all the love & well wishes” on the second. The third photo is captioned 7.26.2020, which is apparently the photoshoot date.
The photos were shot by fashion photographers Luigi and Iango, and Hadid was styled by Gabriella Karefa-Johnson. Her makeup was done by Erin Parsons.
Hadid has been quiet on social media about her first pregnancy. She explained why on Instagram Live back in July. Hadid said, “I'm pregnant through a pandemic, like obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world. That's a reason that I felt that it's not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus, that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening."
"I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family and it's been very cute and exciting and I'm trying to document it well because I've heard a lot of people say obviously make sure you don't miss it," Hadid continued.
“I feel like right now I just want to experience it.”
For those who feel like three baby bump pictures just aren’t enough, Hadid said, “I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it, and I feel like right now I just want to experience it, and I write in my journal a lot, and I just don't want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and like worry about having to like look cute or post something."
Congratulations to Gigi and Zayn!
