She recently revealed she’s expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, just months after they confirmed their reunion.
The supermodel, 25, expressed her gratitude towards her ‘superhero’ mum, 56, as she shared a slew of throwback images, one of which featured a pregnant Yolanda cradling young Gigi on the beach during a family holiday.
In celebration of the special occasion, the catwalk queen wrote on her social media platform: ‘Best I could ever ask for. ❤️
‘Happy Mother’s Day to the one I’ll do my best to emulate. I love you beyond words @yolanda.hadid you are a superhero!!!!!’ [sic]
The Vogue coverstar and the former model maintain a relatively close relationship, which was previously documented on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Dutch TV personality Yolanda also shares Bella, 23, and Anwar, 20, with former husband, American-Jordanian real estate developer Mohamed, 70.
Gigi confirmed the baby news during an interview on Jimmy Fallon as she thanked the talk show host for congratulating her on her pregnancy.
‘Obviously we wish 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,’ she said.
The blonde insisted was appreciative she was able to fully experience her pregnancy due to the current quarantine guidelines amid the coronavirus crisis.
Gigi and former One Direction singer Zayn, 27, has endured a rocky four-year relationship, with the pair reconciling in December after a year-long split.
The couple first embarked on a relationship in November 2015, three months after the musician called off his engagement to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.
Gigi and Zayn weren’t afraid of showing off their relationship in the public eye as the Los Angeles native starred in her then-beau’s Pillowtalk video in January 2016, before the pair featured in Vogue’s July 2017 edition.
After just over two years together, the couple confirmed their break-up on Twitter in March 2018.
The IMG model and the musician rekindled their romance a month later as they were pictured packing on the PDA in images obtained by TMZ.
Gigi and Zayn kept the status of their relationship low-key from August 2018, five months before they officially split.
By January this year, the on-off duo went public with their rekindled relationship during an outing with Gigi’s siblings in New York.
