  • Gigi Hadid confirmed she's expecting a baby with Zayn Malik during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last week.
  • Her ex, Tyler Cameron, shared his feelings about the news on ESPN West Palm.
  • "I am excited for her, I am happy for her," Cameron said. "She is going to be an incredible mother."

Gigi Hadid and Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron reportedly had a pretty amicable breakup after dating for a few months last year, so it's little surprise Cameron had only nice things to say about his ex's pregnancy news. Speaking on ESPN West Palm last week, as People reports (opens in new tab), he said he was "excited" and "happy" for Hadid, adding that she'd be an "incredible mother." Cute!

Firstly, Cameron disputed reports that he was devastated by the news, explaining, "Two nights ago, we were celebrating my brother's graduation party. We were doing karaoke. Next thing you know, Us Weekly is writing about me drowning my sorrows away because of the news about Gigi Hadid." 

"If anything, I am excited for her, I am happy for her," he said. "She is going to be an incredible mother."

"She is going to be the most incredible mother," Cameron reiterated. "She's a caring, sweet person and she's going to be amazing." Which is as sweet as you'd expect, considering the pair separated on great terms—last year, he told People, "I took it as I met a great person, a great friend. It wasn’t like a bad breakup or anything like that."

An insider close to Cameron said the same after the split (opens in new tab). "Tyler still thinks of Gigi as a friend," they told Us Weekly (opens in new tab). "They were really close, and he still likes and respects her, even though the romantic portion of their relationship is over."
