The news about Gigi’s pregnancy broke shortly after she celebrated her 25th birthday at home in Pennsylvania with Zayn, her sister Bella Hadid, her mother Yolanda and a few other people who are living at the ranch during quarantine.

While TMZ has reported that Gigi is 20 weeks along and that the baby is a girl, Gigi did not disclose anymore details. Gigi’s mum Yolanda told Dutch publication RTL Boulevard, that she was “excited to become an Oma in September.”

Before Gigi confirmed the news, fans had managed to sleuth various clues as to whether or not her birthday party was actually a baby shower as well. A gift bag with the words ‘hello little one’ was spotted in Bella Hadid’s Instagram story (covered by a sunflower emoji), and pink and blue strings were attached to her birthday balloons.

Since finding out, the entire internet has been living for the happy news. So, congrats to Gigi and Zayn! We’re already shaking at how powerful this kid is gonna be!
