Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are finally parents, months after announcing that the model was expecting their first child.
The couple revealed that they had welcomed their daughter on Wednesday September 23 via social media, days after her birth.
'Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful, [sic]' Malik captioned a black-and-white photograph of him and his little newborn's hands entwined.
Hadid also shared a black-and-white photograph of their daughter and has since been active on social media posting photos of her first few day as a new mum with fans.
From their first week as parents to their first outing as a family, here's a timeline of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s first months as new parents:
Thursday October 15: Gigi Hadid shares photo of baby gift from Queer Eye's Tan France
The model has shared a photograph on her Instagram Stories of the adorable baby gift she's received from her BFF Tan France.
France gifted the 25-year-old's daughter two personalised baby grows embroidered with the phrase 'Zigi's Girl', which is an amalgamation of Gigi and Zayn's names.
'Omg @tanfrance love so much,' Hadid captioned the image.
Hadid has been friends with France and the Queer Eye gang for several years. The pair even celebrated her 23rd birthday together with Queer Eye's Anthony Porowski, Cara Delevingne, and Bella Hadid in NYC in 2018.
Friday October 9: Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik enjoy first date night since becoming parents
The model shared several videos and photos of herself cooking for her and Zayn’s date night – their first since welcoming their baby girl last month.
On Friday, the 25-year-old shared a video of herself making browned sage butter chicken piccata with mushroom pasta for her night in with her partner.
Sharing a picture of her culinary pièce de resistance, the new mum wrote in the caption: ‘Mum and dad’s first date night (she’s in the other room w Oma but miss her sm lol). [sic]’
It’s presumed Hadid is referring to her daughter being cared for by the models’ mother, Dutch former model Yolanda Hadid, as ‘oma’ means ‘grandmother’ in Dutch.
Monday October 5: Gigi Hadid talks soulmates and babies
The model has opened up about soulmates in a newly-released feature clip titled 'Big Questions on a Tiny Horse' for designer Alexander Wang.
Days after welcoming her first child with her boyfriend Zayn Malik, the 25-year-old said of finding a special someone in life: ‘I've heard, like, star clusters or, like, soul clusters that throughout life you find people that you realise are meant to be - meant to carry you through.'
The new mother added that she was feeling 'happy' and 'a little anxious' when she was filming the segment and believes that her purpose in life is ‘to grow creatively and learn everything that brings me joy, which I think is everyone's purpose’.
On the perception of reality, Gigi said she wasn’t sure how to define what is real or a construct.
‘Who knows? It’s like why babies love Peekaboo - they literally think when you cover your face you disappear - it’s genius,’ she noted.
It's presumed the video was filmed prior to Hadid becoming a mother.

Hadid is a close friend of Austyn’s after she wore a full look from her debut collection last October.

‘auntie @taylorswift made this!! [sic]’ she wrote atop the light pink blanket.
‘Hope it’s one she drags around for years till it becomes an unrecognisable shred that she keeps in her pocket as a teenager,’ added Perry, who welcomed her first child with fiancé Orlando Bloom.
The model also shared several images of flower arrangements she’s received since welcoming her baby, including bouquets from Eva Chen, director of fashion partnerships at Instagram, and designer Tommy Hilfiger.
