Yolanda Hadid Says She's Excited 'To Become Oma' After Daughter Gigi Confirms She Is Expecting Her First Child With Zayn Malik
Just hours before Gigi Hadid confirmed the news herself on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon , former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid confirmed her supermodel daughter is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik.
While speaking with the Dutch TV program RTL Boulevard , the Dutch-born reality star did confirm that the rumors swirling about Gigi’s pregnancy were true.
“Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press. Of course we are so excited,” Yolanda told the outlet according to their Instagram post. “I’m excited to become Oma 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.”
Yolanda’s mother, Ans van den Herik, died last summer after a long battle with cancer. BuzzFeed translated the caption of the post, which read: “Yolanda Hadid has confirmed to us that her daughter Gigi is indeed pregnant. She becomes a grandma in September.”
TMZ was the first to report that Gigi and Malik were expecting. The outlet reported that the supermodel - who just celebrated her 25th birthday - is approximately 20 weeks along.
Gigi told Fallon on Thursday night that she and Malik wish they could have broken the news on their own terms, but ultimately they are just happy and excited. She also noted that being locked down in quarantine with Malik during the pregnancy has been a “silver lining” since neither one has to deal with their normally busy schedules.
Gigi says that being with Malik on her family’s Pennsylvania ranch has allowed them to be present and “really experience” the pregnancy on a daily basis. She also revealed that her biggest craving so far during her pregnancy has been everything bagels, and her family surprised her on her birthday with an everything bagel cake.
Not only was she shocked and that she received an everything bagel cake for her birthday, but she got an added surprise when she found out that Buddy the Cake Boss made it for her. Gigi Hadid is such a big fan of Cake Boss , she has the opening to the show memorized.
Gigi also revealed that she cried every five minutes over the bagel cake that Buddy made, but she isn’t sure if the tears were from pregnancy hormones or from COVID-19 cabin fever.
