Gigi Hadid recently addressed questions about her pregnancy and her decision to keep it largely private during an Instagram Live.
The model who was also promoting her new V Magazine Gigi Journal Part II issue, gave viewers a glimpse of her pregnant stomach for the first time.
The supermodel unbuttoned her flowy pajama top and turned to the side before throwing up a peace sign. “There’s my belly y’all,” she said. Hadid added that she doesn’t always look pregnant in her photos because “from the front it’s different.” The model seemed to be referencing past commentary which claimed that she “hid” her baby bump. Gigi clapped back at claims of her “disguising” her growing belly with baggier clothing. The model stated that she will be “proud and happy” to share more about her pregnancy when she feels like it.
“My pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world”
Along With discussing her V magazine collaboration, Gigi also addressed fan questions about her pregnancy.
“I am so grateful for the positive comments and the questions and wanting just to know that we’re all good and safe. Everything’s going great and I love you guys. I do appreciate those positive comments,” the supermodel said. “Obviously, I think a lot of people are confused why I’m not sharing more, but like, I’m pregnant through a pandemic. Like, obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world,” Hadid continued. Gigi is talking in reference to current world events, like the novel coronavirus outbreak and the Black Lives Matter movement that deserve more focus than her pregnancy.
“That’s the reason why I’ve felt that it’s not really something that I need to share, apart from with my family and friends,” she explained. “Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus, that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”
Gigi’s latest Obsession
The model also raved about her latest obsession with the linen pajamas that she was seen sporting in the video.
She gave a shout out to Holiday the Label, an Australian brand that exudes summer vacation style, for sending her the comfortable checkered set. She also clarified that her video wasn’t sponsored in any way. “It’s all I want to wear. Holiday, if you’re watching, I’m obsessed and if you make these sets in a hundred other colors I will take them and I appreciate it,” she said during the Live. Gigi explained that she loved how she could wear the drawstring pants below her belly to let it air out, and how the linen material and loose fit were perfect for the super sunny weather. “It’s so hot and sweaty, especially when you’re pregnant,” she said.
As she showed off the set, at around the 10-minute mark of the video Gigi even gave a glimpse of her growing bump under her pajama top. The model explained that while she’s been keeping her pregnancy quite private, she’s taking a lot of pictures and documenting her journey as much as possible. She promised fans she’ll be sharing more peeks in the future.
Gigi is expecting a baby girl with her boyfriend and former One direction member, Zayn Malik.
