While there are several celebrity bump alerts to look out for in 2020, not all of them have been sharing their pregnancy journeys every step of the way.
Gigi Hadid has been quietly keeping her final days of pregnancy under wraps – save for a maternity shoot in July. Social media “stans” have kept their eagle eyes trained on her pregnancy. Hadid and former One Direction member, Zayn Malik, are expecting a daughter together, but instead of being able to break the news themselves, the couple’s special news was uncovered by fans.
During a series of birthday posts made by sister Bella Hadid on social media, one user spotted a gift bag masked behind a sunflower emoji. Clever online detectives soon realized that it bore the greeting, “Hello, Little One” by comparing the gift bag to others on the market. Gigi Hadid later confirmed her pregnancy during a Zoom interview with Jimmy Fallon.
Late last night, Bella posted a rare pregnancy photo of Gigi, in which the sisters posed both holding their “bumps”. For one shocking moment, it seemed like Bella was sharing her own secret with the world. Hilariously, the caption teased “two buns in the oven”. Bella quickly clarified, saying, “except mine is from my burger and Gigi’s is from @zayn”. Internet sleuths immediately speculated that the Instagram post signaled the arrival of Hadid and Malik’s baby, as the couple were expecting in mid-September, especially when Bella concluded her mis-direction post, saying, “can’t stop crying”.
