Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s Baby: Everything We Know

    It’s official: Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are parents! 

    After initial reports from TMZ that the couple were expecting their first child, the supermodel confirmed the happy news on April 30 during a remote appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

    “Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support, so…,” she said. “I’m trying [to be present for every part of it]. Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together and really experience it.”

    A source also spilled some tea to Entertainment Tonight at the time. “Gigi and Zayn are expecting their first child together and the couple is very excited,” the source said. “Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while as she’s only a few months along. Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special. The couple and their families are overjoyed.”

    Here’s everything else we (reportedly) know about Gigi Hadid’s pregnancy and baby.

    Hadid’s mom, Yolanda, was very excited to be a grandmother. Before Hadid confirmed the news herself, a Dutch outlet reportedly spoke to her mom. “Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press,” she told RTL Boulevard. “Of course, we are so excited. I am excited to become 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.”

    The couple was reportedly “thrilled” at the baby news, though it was a surprise. “They’ve been through their ups and downs, but neither stopped caring about the other,” a source told People. “They’ve jumped on the timing of having a baby and are preparing for their new lives.” The source added, “Gigi is young but always said she wants several kids. She’s sensitive and nurturing and will be a great mom.”

    Hadid was pregnant during Fashion Month in February. The supermodel appeared on an Instagram Live makeup tutorial with Maybelline and makeup artist Erin Parsons and gave us a little hint as to how far along she was in her pregnancy. “People think I do fillers on my face and that’s why my face is round, but I’ve had cheeks since I was born,” she said, per Entertainment Tonight. “Especially Fashion Month when I was already a few months preggo.”

    Hadid documented her pregnancy, even though she hadn’t been sharing lots of photos publicly. During an Instagram Live with V Magazine in July 2020, the model said her pregnancy was “not the most important thing going on in the world,” referencing the coronavirus and the Black Lives Matter movement. 

    But she did take lots of pictures and write in her journal about this special time in her life. “I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family, and it’s been really cute and exciting…. I’m trying to document it well, because I’ve heard a lot of people say, ‘Make sure you don’t miss it,’” she said. “And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it, and I feel like right now I just want to experience it… I just don’t want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and, like, worry about having to look cute or post something.” 

    She also gave the world its first look at her baby bump. “There’s my belly, y’all. Like, it’s there,” she said.

    It’s a girl! Malik confirmed the birth of his and Hadid’s daughter on Twitter on September 23. “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task,” he wrote. “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 x”

    Hadid shared another photo of her little girl’s hand on Instagram. “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love🥺💕,” she wrote in the caption. 

    The couple is “loving” parenthood. “Gigi and Zayn can’t get enough of their little girl,” a source told Us Weekly for an article posted on October 16. “Things are going really swimmingly between them and they’re both so happy. Gigi is so excited to be a new mom and has been appreciating every moment.”

    Issa Rae Says It Was ‘Rude’ for Her Career to Peak While ‘Democracy Was Collapsing’

    Issa Rae made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut on Saturday, October 17, and the Insecure creator and star used her opening monologue to reflect on her career—which took off just as the country was, as she put it, “collapsing” from the 2016 election.

    She began her monologue by noting how much of an honor it was to perform on the same stage as some of her faves, including Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. “I’m scared that I might throw up but I gotta hold it down because I’m the first black person to host SNL y’all,” she joked. ”I’m really not. OK, I’m lying, it’s not true. But y’all believed it for a second. What if I kept lying to y’all like that? I hope y’all wouldn’t even notice.”

    Rae went on to explain that she was originally supposed to host the show back in March, but it was postponed—just like so many other TV shows and movies—due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She also pointed out that she’s hosting SNL around the same time her show premiered on HBO four years ago, right before Donald Trump was elected president.

    “The [election] results came in, and, of course, everybody was freaking out. I was freaking out,” Rae continued. “And it felt really awkward for my life to be going so good. Like, it was rude to be peaking right when democracy was collapsing.”

    She added, “It’s just really weird to say thank god for what happened in the fall of 2016.”

    The four-time Emmy nominee later compared the first year of Insecure to her freshman year of high school, admitting she felt “awkward and Black.” She explained, “I’d see all the cliques and the cool girls that I wanted to be friends with, and I even dealt with bullies sometimes.”

    “You guys know it as Twitter,” Rae quipped. “Twitter can be so scary. Being dragged on social media feels like a low-stakes horror movie.”

    Ultimately though, Rae noted that her hosting gig is a career milestone. “If doing my show for the last four years is like high school, SNL is like my and you guys are all my dates,” she said. “I’m ready to go all the way y’all.”

    Your Horoscope for the Week of October 19, 2020

    Your weekly horoscope, at your service. It’s Scorpio season which means fall is upon us—a perfect time to draw your energy inward and hone in on what’s important in your heart of hearts. Relationships are favored all week, so fill divides with love. It pays to stay connected to those who have earned your trust, so deepen your bonds to build true intimacy. Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of October 19 through to October 25, 2020, then get to know your rising sign.

    Aries | Aries rising

    This week kicks off a month-long deep dive into your sphere of shared assets, intimacy, and desire. Some reassessment is essential for adjustment. Notice who is willing to combine forces and resources with you either personally, in business, or simply to lend a trusted ear when you need them. It’s important to share your deeper feelings or anything you’d like to shed some light on that you normally don’t. Journaling or simple end-of-day note taking might bring up some things you hide even from yourself—or shed light on routines that need readjusting. 

    Taurus | Taurus rising

    Midweek the focus moves from your work and health zone to relationships. Who really has your back no matter what? Lean into those who respect you, who are always there for you through the good, the bad, and the occasional tears. The focus is on looking into the mirror your relationships provide as a reflection of how and what you choose to cultivate. Tend your garden consciously, and it will bear whatever you plant and water it with dear Taurus. 

    Gemini | Gemini rising

    This week kicks off a month-long focus on what you have or have not been doing for your long-term health. Consider a post-summer reset in order to feel your best and do the same for your work environment. Clean out draws, sort out paperwork, and simplify. This is also a key time, Gemini, to address questions around how you want to spend your time and research the right fit if you’ve been considering a change.

    Kourtney Kardashian Wore A “Vote Kanye” Hat And Twitter Has Thoughts

    The Kardashian-Jenner clan hasn’t meaningfully commented on Kanye West’s bid for the presidency, which is why it’s puzzling that after months of silence, Kourtney Kardashian seemingly endorsed her brother-in-law…via hat

    In an Instagram Story posted on Friday, Kourtney Kardashian posted a link to the “best voter merch” followed by a picture of herself wearing one of the items: a “Vote Kanye” hat. It’s hardly an emphatic statement: in the post, the hat reads backwards because it’s a mirror selfie. Still, Kardashian drew attention to the accessory, tagging West in the post with a big yellow arrow pointing to the hat.

    West controversially announced he was running for president on July 4. He failed to get on the ballot in most states but is currently asking voters to write in his name.

    While Kourtney’s thought process behind the post is unclear, Twitter’s reaction was loud and clear. “This is so embarrassing,” wrote Tyler Oakley alongside a screencap of the story, in a tweet that’s been liked tens of thousands of times. “kourtney kardashian posting an insta story to her 102 MILLION followers encouraging them to vote for kanye is one of the most irresponsible, egregious and reckless uses of that family’s platform that i’ve ever seen,” posted Twitter use @ajhisnandez. Twitter user @LoveAndyC even made it personal, calling Kardashian’s intelligence into question: *deep sigh* @kourtneykardash You seriously think people should vote for Kanye? You think he can run this country, handle foreign issues, COVID, climate change, possible war, etc? This is incredibly irresponsible and quite frankly stupid. You are a clown.”

    Voters may remember the slim margins that gave Donald Trump an electoral victory in 2016 and be concerned that third party votes, especially in swing states, could decide the election. Kardashian did get one thing right: make sure you vote.

    The Internet Is Floored By A Woman Running A 5:25 Mile While 9 Months Pregnant

    TikTok has given us some superhuman tricks and stunts in the past, but nothing has come close to this impressive feat: a woman running a mile in under five and a half minutes…while nine months pregnant.  As so many athletes have shown us in the past, you should never underestimate what a pregnant woman is capable of. This mom-to-be is proving it by…well, just watch:

    Amazing, right? The TikTok has been played millions of times by viewers impressed with the strength on display.

    According to BuzzFeed, the woman in the video is Makenna Myler, who told the outlet she’s been running almost daily throughout her pregnancy, has “been very particular with my strength training to make sure my pelvic shift and added weight didn’t/doesn’t cause any injury.” Myler added that, while discussing how her pregnancy could affect her pace, her husband “said he would give me $100 if I could break 8 minutes doing the mile at 9 months pregnant.” (It was for fun and motivation, not manipulation, we hope and assume.) Well, he better pay up, because in the video, Myler clocks in at five minutes and twenty-five seconds.

    Myler reported that she consulted with two doctors during her pregnancy (as any pregnant woman should when it comes to exercise): the first, who had worked with “elite athletes before,” supported her frequent sprints, and the second came around after an ultrasound showed her baby  to be “perfectly healthy,” she says. 

    It’s important to note that there’s no wrong or right way to be pregnant, and all bodies are different. We aren’t suggesting that this is what fitness can or should look like for anyone else. But if a woman wants to set new goals during her pregnancy, and her doctor approves, that’s awesome. “Feeling capable is everything to me,” said Myler. “Running has been a big outlet for me in that way. Running during pregnancy has been a beautiful process of accepting effort and patience, not forcing anything, and letting go of pace and forced mileage.”

    Her baby is due on Monday. Here’s hoping labor goes lightning-fast, too!

    Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez Released a Video Endorsing Joe Biden

    Hardly a shock: Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez would prefer Trump out of office. Speaking virtually with former Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden, the superstar couple explained why they are endorsing the Democratic nominee for president in the upcoming election.

    Metaphorically invoking his career in sports, Rodriguez said he wants “to come together as a team to defeat COVID” and to repair the economy. Lopez added, “for me, it’s unifying the nation again, getting rid of this hate. Thinking about my kids waking around in a world where it’s okay to be racist or prejudiced because our administration says it’s okay. That, to me, is really sad, because it’s not the country, to me, that I believe that I grew up in.”

    Pointing out that the Latino population has been especially affected by the pandemic, Lopez asked the Bidens what their plan is to contain the virus and eventually reopen the economy. The former Vice President responded with a few sobering statistics: “a Latino is three times more likely to be infected by the virus than a white person. Three million unemployed [ed note: this unemployment number is total, all ethnicities], two hundred thousand DREAM-ers are on the front lines of essential workers risking their lives…and one in three Latino small businesses are gone.”

    The foursome also discussed the power of voting, and Dr. Biden promised that if her husband is elected, Latina women will have “a seat at the table.” “And in the cabinet,” the nominee added. They bonded over their shared Catholic faith and commitment to family. The pop star and ball player encouraged everyone, especially in Florida, to vote, speaking in Spanish about the importance of casting a ballot.

    Since being posted on Friday, the chat has been viewed over three million times via Lopez’ Instagram page. On YouTube, some commenters have pointed out that superstars like JLo and ARod are far removed from the everyday concerns of most Americans, though it’s worth pointing out that concerns over hatred and bigotry certainly transcend class, and as we’ve seen, even the richest celebrities aren’t safe from the coronavirus. Anyone can want a better future for their country.

    Oh and again, in case you missed it, VOTE.

    Chrissy Teigen Says She And John Legend Are “Quiet But Okay” After Losing Their Baby

    Two weeks after a devastating miscarriage, Chrissy Teigen is letting fans know she and husband John Legend are “okay.” The model and cookbook author shared screencaps of Legend’s note to her on Twitter to Instagram with the caption, “We are quiet but we are okay. Love you all so much.” Known for being active and sharing much of her life online, Teigen had been silent since returning home from the hospital after losing her baby.

    Legend’s tweets were about his Billboard Music Awards performance, which he dedicated to his wife, playing the emotional song “Never Break.” Posting a link to video of the performance, Legend wrote on Twitter, “This is for Chrissy. I love and cherish you and our family so much. We’ve experienced the highest highs and lowest lows together. Watching you carry our children has been so moving and humbling…I’m in awe of the strength you’ve shown through the most challenging moments. What an awesome gift it is to be able to bring life into the world. We’ve experienced the miracle, the power and joy of this gift, and now we’ve deeply felt its inherent fragility.”

    Legend explained the meaning behind his song, writing, “We promised each other this on our wedding day seven years ago, and every challenge we’ve faced has made that promise more powerful, more resilient. Our love will remain. We will never break.”

    He concluded his thread with “I’m sure Chrissy will have much more to say about this when she’s ready. But just know we’re grateful and we’re sending love to all of you and your families,” a sentiment Teigen more or less echoed.

    Teigen’s latest post has garnered supportive reactions from friends and strangers across the Internet, including celebrities like Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Bravo’s Andy Cohen and Bella Hadid, who all added loving comments. We’re sending our love, too.
