Supermodel Gigi Hadid is expecting her first child with One Direction’s Zayn Malik, according to US media reports.

A source close to the family revealed to Entertainment Tonight that the Palestinian-American model and her British boyfriend have been keeping the secret “close to her family and friends for a while, as she’s only a few months along.”

The 25-year-old, who recently celebrated her birthday alongside Malik and her family, has yet to make a public announcement.
