Two months before news broke the loved up couple are expecting their first child together, Vogue's cover girl gushed about wanting to start a family in the future.
In an interview with about the world of modelling, life in the spotlight and her plans for the future, the 25-year-old said of motherhood: "I think that as I get older... well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modelling."
Prior to this, the daughter of supermodel Yolanda Hadid told Extra in a red carpet interview last year that she's excited to raise her little ones alongside her siblings' kids.
"We have a, like, family farm that we go to a lot … yeah, all four of us might, like, maybe one day buy something together somewhere just so we can have all our kids together in one place. Not that I have kids yet, but one of my sisters has kids."
Although they've remained radio silent about the baby news, family members, who wished to remain anonymous, told Entertainment Weekly she's 20 weeks along.
"Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while as she’s only a few months along. 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."
A source close to the pair also told Us Weekly: "Gigi and Zayn are so in love. She’s always wanted to start a family with Zayn."
Since going public with their romance in November 2015, the runway model and her singer-songwriter beau, 27, have split on multiple occasions.
In March 2018, they briefly parted ways before rekindling their romance months later. By January 2019, they had called it quits again.
While she's long remained tight-lipped about the state of their relationship, Gigi confirmed they were an item again in February 2020, calling the "Pillowtalk" singer her "Valentine" in an adorable Instagram post.
