Malik took to Twitter Thursday to announce the birth of his daughter with Gigi Hadid. “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful to try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together,” the former One Direction member wrote. He did not reveal what their daughter’s name is.
After rumors swirled earlier this year that the couple were expecting their first child, Hadid confirmed the news during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in April.
“Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms,” Hadid told Fallon at the time. “We’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support.” Amid the novel coronavirus pandemic, Hadid said it was “a nice silver lining to be home and be together” while experiencing her pregnancy “day by day.”

Prior to the pregnancy, Hadid, 25, and Malik, 27, had and on-and-off relationship for over five years. The model and singer started dating in 2015, only to announce their separation in 2018. The couple confirmed their reconciliation on Instagram late last year.
The baby marks the first for both Hadid and Malik. Malik would mark the third of his former One Direction bandmates to become a father, following Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
