Yesterday, news broke that Gigi Hadid and her on-again off-again boyfriend Zayn Malik are expecting their first child together (opens in new tab), which, yay! This exciting life update dropped just a few days after Gigi's birthday, which she celebrated in quarantine with her family—including Bella Hadid and Zayn. But here's the thing: sleuth-y fans re-visited her birthday pics and think there's evidence that the celebration was also a casual gender reveal party.

On top of that, Bella Hadid covered the text on this gift bag in her Instagram Stories of the party, and naturally fans found the bag and it says "hello little one."

If you're surprised by Gigi's pregnancy: Apparently it's been her and Zayn's plan all along to start a family. An Us Weekly (opens in new tab) source says, "She’s always wanted to start a family with Zayn" and they're both "so in love."

Meanwhile, an Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab) source says "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 couple and their families are overjoyed."
