The 25-year-old model seemed pleased to finally be able to discuss the news while participating in a video chat with American talk show host Jimmy Fallon.
Without wasting time, Jimmy said to the expectant mother: “I have to say … congratulations on having a baby!” “
Thanking the presenter, Gigi couldn’t hide her joy as she beamed and clasped her hands in front of her belly.
“We are very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s good wishes and support,” she said.
“This is the sunshine we all need,” said Jimmy.
Gigi, who is currently in custody at his family’s Pennsylvania farm with Zayn, has kept his flowering hump hidden in plain sight in an oversized tartan coat.
She told Jimmy that she was fortunate to be pregnant at the time because she was able to spend a lot of quality time with her handsome pop star.
“It’s a beautiful silver lining so you can be at home and be together and really experience it day after day. “
Gigi then spoke to the host about her 25th birthday over the weekend, where she first intrigued fans, bursting into tears over the food her family had provided her.
Explaining why she became so emotional, Gigi said that her desire for a pregnancy was bagels and that her family members therefore managed to find some treats from her favorite bakery during the lockout.
“I was so excited that everything was bagel. Then I found out that Buddy, the boss of the cake, had made my cake, “she said.
“I don’t know if these are my hormones right now or my quarantined emotions but I cried every five minutes for about an hour.
“Whenever I thought Buddy was making my cake.” I kept crying. “
Sharp-eyed fans had suspected that bash could double as a genre-revealing party when Gigi was pictured with pink and blue balloon carriers and a “Hello Little One” gift bag.
Before Gigi or Zayn confirmed the rising rumors, Yolanda Hadid was happy to speak to reporters earlier this week.
The Real Housewives of Beverley Hills star told RTL Boulevard, “Of course we are so excited. I’m excited to become an oma [grandmother] in September, especially after losing my mother so recently.
“But this is the beauty of life, a soul leaves us and a new one enters. We feel very blessed. “
