It has been two months since Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik welcomed their daughter, who has held everyone’s attention right on to herself.
The new mama, dad, and grandmother Yolanda Hadid are spending most of their time with the little angel, and their joy is evident in the snapshots they share of baby Zigi.
The happiness level of the family members is so much that the proud mama can’t stop sharing throwback pregnancy pictures. On Monday, Gigi Hadid gave her fans an inside look at her daughter’s nursery, alongside a photo from the night before she went into labor!
The 25-year-old model took to her Instagram stories to share new photos captioning the picture as, “the night before I went into labor.”
In a photo taken in baby Zigi’s nursery, Gigi mentioned it was taken about a week before she gave birth. “Decorating & spending time in her nursery really helped me feel prepared when I would get too in my head,” she said.
Gigi Hadid also showed off the bookshelf in the nursery that she created, revealing that “so many friends sent their favorite books.”
Grandma Yolanda Takes Over
As baby Zigi is growing up, Gigi Hadid is also getting back to work. And making the most of the situation, grandma Yolanda Hadid has taken over the babysitting duty.
Taking to Instagram stories, Yolanda Hadid was seen cuddling her newborn grand-daughter. “We spent the day while Mamma was away,” Yolanda captioned the photo.
Earlier on Friday, Gigi revealed she has returned to work two months after welcoming her daughter, with boyfriend Zayn Malik.
Alongside a video of herself sitting on a black leather sofa, the supermodel wrote, “would say back 2 work BUT being a mama is a job like no otherrrr.”
“BACK IN THE OFFICE,” she added in the caption.
Grandfather Mohamed Hadid’s Take
While baby Zigi is enjoying all the love and attention, grandfather Mohamed Hadid, a Palestinian architect, talking to Cosmopolitan, spoke candidly about stepping into his new role and whose genes have the baby girl inherited.
“When I saw her, she was a beam of light. So pretty and so perfect, he said. “I want to say she was a China doll: beautiful and fragile. Her skin was so perfect and her eyes were open. Gigi gave natural birth and didn’t take any medications. She had the baby in the bathtub.”
He further added that the baby has definitely inherited Gigi’s genes. “She is as cute as her mother, so I’m happy. Forget about her father,” he laughed.
Divulging more details about what the future holds for baby Zigi, Mohamed Hadid added, “She will be raised the same way she was born, in a calm environment. Gigi didn’t make a big deal out of it and that’s our idea of raising her, to not give fame to a youngster.”
“She wants her to go out and make her own identity. It’s better for her to grow up in a normal environment and create her own identity. Maybe she just wants to be a veterinarian or a doctor,” he said.
