Update, 8/31/20: Once again, Gigi Hadid has delighted fans with more photos of her pregnancy photoshoot, which is the most public she's been about her journey towards motherhood. And get ready, because they're even more gorgeous.

Hadid also shared exactly how far along she was when the photos were taken (7/26): 33 weeks. Meaning that her due date could be anywhere from now to the end of September (with an actual due date in mid-September, potentially, although Hadid's been private on the exact details until now). Hadid's mother Yolanda Hadid did confirm that she was expecting to become a grandma in September.

The green fabric is simultaneously so minimalistic and absolutely luxe:

And this denim look is amazing and very much pregnancy goals, right there:

I think, of the three, my favorite might be the "making of" videos where you see just how much of a badass model Gigi is.

This is honestly just making me more excited for when the baby arrives, and we (hopefully) get a cute photo.

Original post: Omg! Gigi Hadid just posted several gorgeous black-and-white photos of her prominent baby bump. Her first child with on-again boyfriend Zayn Malik, the model is absolutely glowing. This isn't the first time Hadid has mentioned the pregnancy on her feed, but it's her first pregnancy photoshoot and the most revealing she's been on the subject. (Can you imagine having such gorgeous photos for a pregnancy announcement?? So jealous.)

Captioning the first photo "growin an angel :)," Hadid captioned the second photo with a date (7.26.20), which may have been when the photos were taken. In the third photo she wrote, "cherishing this time. appreciate all the love & well wishes ♡ will never forget creating these special images with my friends [fashion photographers] Luigi and Iango, [Garage fashion director] Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, [and Maybelline Global Makeup Artist] Erin Parsons. thank you. I love you!" It's not clear if this was a photoshoot for Garage.

It's been an interesting pregnancy journey for Hadid and Malik: Hadid admitted that the initial announcement wasn't something they were a part of, saying, "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." Then on an Instagram Live, she responded to a fan wondering why she didn't have a baby bump. "This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion. From the side it's a different story!" (She later clarified that she's not disguising her baby bump and that she's "proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.").

Hadid also hasn't been shy about her love for Zayn Malik, posting a photo of the two just a few weeks ago with the caption "baby daddy :)"

Here are the gorgeous photos:

So amazing.
