Supermodel Gigi Hadid on Thursday confirmed she was expecting a baby with former "One Direction" singer Zayn Malik, saying the couple were both excited and happy.

Hadid, who turned 25 last week, appeared remotely on Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" on Thursday to give the news following rumours circulating for several days in the celebrity media.

"We wish we could have announced it on our own terms but we are very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well wishes," said Hadid, according to an advance excerpt of the video.

Hadid and British singer Malik started dating in late 2015 and their on-off romance made them one of the most sought-after celebrity couples.
They appeared together in Malik's romantic "Pillowtalk" music video in 2016 and at the Met Gala in New York but announced in 2018 that they had split up.

They were spotted together again in January in New York.

Hadid on Thursday gave no details on when the baby was due but said the couple were relishing their time in lockdown due to the coronavirus.

"It is a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it (the pregnancy) day by day," said Hadid.

The child will be the first for both Hadid and Malik.

On Saturday, Hadid celebrated her 25th birthday while in lockdown with Malik and her sister Bella Hadid, sharing a Boomerang video of herself alongside

Gigi Hadid likes to be down-to-earth as she prefers to be at the countryside over the hustle and bustle of big cities.

Gigi was recently interviewed by her famous friends including Serena Williams, Kendall Jenner, Blake Lively and Taylor Swift about everything.

In the interview that appears in Harper's Bazaar magazine, Gigi revealed several unknown facts of her life. From her eating habits to the routines she practices that help her feel sane in this crazy world.

Among interesting things her fans got to know is that the highflying model actually prefers rural tranquility over life in the fast lane of the big cities.
She said she enjoys being at her mother Yolanda Hadid's Pennsylvania property and how it reminds her of the "simple pleasures" of life.
