I loved it, I knew what I wanted from the pics and Gab and L&I really made it happen for me🥺🙏🤍 but was definitely more tiring than working normally. Got through the second look and was like ‘guys I think I can only do two more’ 😰 hahaaaa https://t.co/QrRmym5dxC— Gigi Hadid (@GiGiHadid) August 27, 2020
The model added that the shoot was ‘definitely more tiring that working normally’, noting: ‘Got through the second look and was like “guys I think I can only do two more”.'
Gigi Hadid has shared the first proper images of her baby bump since announcing she was expecting her first child with Zayn Malik in April.
On Wednesday, the 25-year-old shared several black-and-white images of her bare bump on Instagram, noting that she was ‘cherishing this time’ in the post’s caption.
‘Appreciate all the love & well wishes ♡ will never forget creating these special images with my friends @luigiandiango @gabriellak_j @erinparsonsmakeup thank you. I love you!,’ she added, thanking photographers Luigi and Iango, fashion director Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and make-up artist Erin Parsons.
In one of the photos, Gigi cradles her bump wearing a mini chiffon-style long-sleeved sheer dress and wears her long, naturally wavy hair down. In another, she wears a floor-length white gown, created by London-based brand DI PETSA, and her hair straight.
Celebrities including Poppy Delevingne and Emily Ratajkowski have commented on the post, expressing admiration for the New York-based model.
‘WOW. 💖😍💖 BEAUTIFUL GIRL, beautiful BUMP....x,’ commented Delevingne, while Ratajkowski left numerous heart-eyed emojis in the comments section.
Designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, Queer Eye star Tan France and model Christy Turlington have also commented on the photos.
In April, Hadid announced she was pregnant with her first child with partner Malik during an interview on the Jimmy Fallon show.
‘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…’ she told the show’s host while in lockdown at her mother Yolanda Hadid’s farm in Pennsylvania.
‘I’m trying [to be present for every part of it],’ she continued. ‘Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it.’
In recent months, Hadid has kept relatively quiet regarding he pregnancy but revealed that her pregnancy cravings include bagels.
‘I eat an everything bagel everyday and so I was already like, so excited that my birthday cake was the everything bagel,’ she told Fallon.
In June, during an Instagram live, the model answered questions relating to her not showing much of a ‘tummy’ during her pregnancy.
‘This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion. From the side it's a different story!’ she replied.
She later took to Twitter to shut down speculation that she was internationally ‘disguising’ her bump.
‘Disguise ....,’ she wrote in a Tweet. ‘I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories—not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything.
‘Will be proud and happy to share "insight" when I feel like it, thanks.
‘For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.’
