Gigi Hadid hopped on Instagram Live on Wednesday (July 15), where she showed the world her pregnant belly for the first time. The supermodel unbuttoned her flowy pajama top and turned to the side before throwing up a peace sign.
“There’s my belly y’all,” she said, before adding that she doesn’t always look pregnant in her photos because “from the front it’s different.”
“I really appreciate your positive messages,” she continued. “I’m just taking my time with sharing my pregnancy.”
She also addressed those who troll her for not posting more about her future baby with Zayn Malik. “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 [the] coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”

Back in April, after a few days of rumors, Hadid confirmed that she is expecting a baby with the former One Direction singer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,” Hadid told Fallon. “We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.”
