On Wednesday, the California-based 71-year-old real estate developer shared a picture of a handwritten poem titled ‘Grandpa's Heart,’ that he’d written for his ‘little grandchild’.
‘Hello little grandchild, it is me, my heart as happy as can be,’ he wrote. ‘I wish for you the sun & moon, I wish for you a happy time. Know that grandpa’s always here, I’ll do anything, anything for you, my dear.’
‘When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away,’ the proud father continued. ‘I cried the tear because I knew my heart would always belong to you.’

In the caption of the post, he noted: ‘In the name of God the The merciful I want to say l love you and so proud of you @gigihadid. [sic]’
Unsurprisingly, Hadid’s fans caught wind of the post and believed it to be a sign that Gigi and her boyfriend Zayn Malik had welcomed their child, after the model revealed that her due date was around September 14.

Hadid’s father later deleted the Instagram post and responded to fans’ questions as to whether his grandchild had arrived.
‘Did Gigi give birth to her baby, please can anyone answer,’ one user commented on the post before Mohamed replied: ‘No not yet.’
The model’s sister, Bella, also replied to questions on her own Instagram account, noting: ‘No, she’s not.’ This is the first time a member of the family has appeared to confirm the baby’s sex.
The speculation comes days after Gigi’s sister had fans convinced the model and singer had welcomed their daughter when she posted a photograph of her standing next to her older sibling both in which they both cradle their ‘baby’ bumps.
‘June 11, 2020 … two buns in the oven except mine is from my burger and gigi’s is from @zayn. I love you both so freaking much -can’tstopcrying [sic],’ the 23-year-old captioned the photo of the pair.
Fans believed the fact that Bella was overcome with emotion suggested that Gigi had given birth.
