  • Gigi Hadid revealed that she was a "few months" along in her pregnancy (opens in new tab) while walking the runways during Fashion Month, or February 2020.
  • The model publicly confirmed her pregnancy months later, in late April.

During an Instagram Live session with Maybelline this afternoon, Gigi Hadid revealed that she was a “few months” pregnant during Fashion Month. The supermodel, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, admitted that she was already expecting when she was walking the runways in February 2020.

Hadid, 25, was chatting with makeup artist Erin Parsons and applying her signature beauty look when she revealed the news. They were discussing the round shape of her face and shutting down accusations that she had fillers. Hadid, who pointed out her natural cheeks, said the false speculation only amplified during Fashion Month, when she was "a few months preggo." At that time, she was walking runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris.

When news of Hadid's pregnancy first broke in late April, TMZ (opens in new tab) reported that she was 20 weeks, or about five months, along. Gigi's mom, Yolanda Hadid, also teased that the model's baby is due in September (opens in new tab).

Hadid first confirmed her pregnancy (opens in new tab) last month during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "Obviously, you know, we wish we could've announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well wishes and support, so thank you," she said when Fallon congratulated her on the baby news.

The runway star added that she's "trying" to be present and take in every moment of her pregnancy in the middle of a global pandemic. "And especially during this time, it's a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it day by day," she said.
