Rumors that Hadid was pregnant began in late April, after TMZ speculated that the star was approximately 20-weeks along. On April 30, Hadid confirmed she was expecting her first child with Malik during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, telling the host, "Obviously, we wish they could've announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well-wishes and support."

Yolanda also confirmed her daughter's pregnancy, and expressed her excitement during in an interview with Dutch publication RTL Outlet in April, as well. "Of course we are so excited," she said. "I'm excited to become a 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."

Malik has yet to comment on becoming a father publicly, but the former One Direction star has appeared in plenty of recent social media posts with his girlfriend. On April 24, Hadid shared pictures from her 25th birthday, including several photos embracing Malik. She wrote: "Had the sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family, who made it so special for me, along with all the love I felt from all over the world!"

It's not yet clear when Hadid and Malik are expecting their first child, nor have the two confirmed if their baby will be a boy or a girl. Yet, it's clear that Yolanda has given her daughter a great parenting example to follow.
