Gigi Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik are officially expecting their first child.
In a YouTube clip that was posted prior to Thursday evening’s screening of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Gigi excitedly confirmed the speculations that had been circulating throughout the last week.
The clip begins with Jimmy congratulating the supermodel and her beau on their first pregnancy. Video-chatting from her family’s farm in Pennsylvania, she replies “Thank you so much. Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes.”
Jimmy went on to call the news "a ray of sunshine" and said that if Gigi and Zayn ever needed anything to "call Uncle Jimmy."
Later on in the interview the pair discuss Gigi’s recent birthday celebrations, making reference to the enormous everything bagel cake made by famed New Jersey baker Buddy "The Cake Boss" Valastro—who Gigi went on to do an impression of in the interview.
She noted the cake was particularly sentimental because it doubled as an ode to the bagel cravings she’s been experiencing as part of her pregnancy thus far.

Following the breaking report published by TMZ on Tuesday evening Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid took to a Dutch media outlet, RTL Boulevard, to confirm the news.
Later picked up by People Magazine, Yolanda was noted saying "I'm excited to become [an] Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life: one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed."
Gigi and Zayn first started dating in late 2015 after she appeared in his music video for "Pillowtalk." On and off throughout the past few years, the couple visibly reconciled earlier this year.
