The model and former One Direction band member have been in an on/off relationship since 2015

Gigi Hadid is pregnant. Several reports say the American-Palestinian model is expecting a baby with her British-Pakistani singer boyfriend, Zayn Malik.

"Gigi and Zayn are expecting their first child together and the couple is very excited. Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while as she’s only a few months along," a family source told Entertainment Tonight.

Hadid and Malik have been in an on/off relationship since 2015, but broke up for a period in 2018. It was confirmed they were back together in December 2019.

"Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year, it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special," the source said. "The couple and their families are overjoyed."

The model has spoken about wanting to start a family in the past.

In February, she told i-D magazine: "As I get older ... well one day, I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modelling.

"The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking."

The Hadid and Malik families are yet to confirm the news, but fellow celebrities have rushed to congratulate them on social media.

"It is a big day for Gigis," Chrissy Teigen wrote on Twitter, referring to Hadid and Golnesa 'GG' Gharachedaghi, 38, the star of reality TV show, Shahs of Sunset, who gave birth to her first child on Monday, April 27.
