Gigi Hadid shows off very pregnant belly in stunning photos – Daily Mail

Gigi Hadid took to Instagram on Wednesday morning to share stunning pregnancy portraits for her 56 million followers.

The 25-year-old supermodel was seen in three new black-and-white images taken by photographers Luigi and Iango in late July.

‘Cherishing this time. appreciate all the love & well wishes ♡ will never forget creating these special images,’ said the Vogue model as she thanked her ‘friends,’ photographers Liugi and Iango, stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson and makeup artist Erin Parsons, all of whom worked on her shoot. ‘Thank you. I love you!’ added the blonde beauty.

‘Growin an angel :),’ the former Guess model wrote in another caption as she revealed the shoot took place on July 26. There were also several ‘behind the scenes’ images shared.

And on her Instagram Stories, the cover girl added, ‘Can’t wait to meet you.’ 

The New York City based star is expecting her first child with 27-year-old singer Zayn Malik this fall. 

The sister of Bella and Anwar Hadid was nicely made up with her long blonde hair worn down as she modeled sheer white clothing in a photo studio setting.

Gigi is back in New York City with Zayn after spending the pandemic enjoying the great outdoors on her farm in Pennsylvania. 

The former One Direction star and the model have been together on and off for the last five years. 

An insider told Us Weekly magazine last month: ‘[They are] closer than ever. Gigi has been living at her mom’s farm with Zayn. She came back to NYC recently but she plans to spend most of her pregnancy there at the farm.’

Gigi confirmed her pregnancy in April, after ‘family sources’ first revealed the news.

She said at the time: ‘Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support. 

‘Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.’ 

However, Gigi has remained tight-lipped about the pregnancy since first acknowledging the news, saying she thinks it’s ‘not the most important thing going on in the world.’

Hadid added: ‘That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. 

‘Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to [the] coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening,’ she said.

‘And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.’

This comes after the model shared some of her pregnancy cravings with fans.

The expectant mother took to Instagram last week with a new post all about things she’s grateful for this summer, including cinnamon rolls and sushi rolls.  

‘Summer gratitude,’ Hadid captioned her latest drop of curated social media photos.

The images were of things Gigi is appreciating these days like the view on her family farm at sunset and beautiful storm clouds. 

She also included snaps of things she’s been eating while pregnant and, like lots of expecting moms, there is a random variety.

On the sweeter side, Gigi shared a close up shot of what looked like freshly baked and iced cinnamon buns along with another of a bowl of fresh picked strawberries from her garden.

Her other craving seems to be for sushi. The supermodel even found a way to get around the issue of not being allowed to eat raw fish during pregnancy by making them vegetarian.

Gigi made some homemade veggie sushi rolls and showed off a photo of her finished product.

In the picture, the table was laid out with all the ingredients like nori sheets, avocados and various veggies prepped and ready to go. 

Her impressive finished roll looked like a professional sushi master could have made it.
