    Rumours that Gigi and boyfriend Zayn Malik were expecting their first child together first came to light back in April, with the model's mom, Yolanda Hadid, confirming that the news had been leaked early.

    Gigi later confirmed the news herself, telling Jimmy Fallon: "Obviously, you know, we wish we could've announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited, happy, and grateful for everyone's well-wishes."

    Speaking about navigating pregnancy during quarantine, the 25-year-old added: "During this time, it's a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together, and really experience [motherhood] day by day."

    And last month, the model briefly gave fans a glimpse of her growing bump, also revealing that she'd been documenting her pregnancy and hoped to share it in the future.

    The model explained that she'd largely been keeping her pregnancy private because she felt it wasn't as important as the coronavirus pandemic or the Black Lives Matter movement, two subjects she thought should be at the forefront of people's minds.

    "I've been trying to document [the pregnancy] well," she added. "And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it. I feel like right now I just want to experience it, and I write in my journal a lot."

    But on Wednesday, Gigi decided to share pictures from a pregnancy photoshoot, simply captioning one picture: "Growing an angel."

    Within minutes, the pictures had garnered more than a million likes as fans flocked to congratulate Gigi.

    "Cherishing this time," she captioned the final picture. "Appreciate all the love & well wishes."

    Adding the pictures to her story, Gigi said, "Can't wait to meet you," before posting a video from behind the scenes of the photoshoot.

    Congrats, Gigi!
