    And, of course, amid floods of birthday wishes from his fans was an adorable message from Zayn's girlfriend and baby mama, Gigi Hadid.

    The model celebrated Zayn's first birthday as a father with a post on Instagram, referring to the couple as "Team No Sleep."

    "Happiest birthday to our Zaddy baba," Gigi wrote. "...Thank you for makin me a mamma to the best girl ever."

    She also shared photos of his birthday party on her Instagram story, which seemed to consist of an entire arcade set up in their home.

    Oh, and there was also Zayn-face confetti and a custom floral arrangement made to look like the album artwork for his upcoming album, Nobody Is Listening.

    Of course, fans loved the message, and found Gigi's use of "Zaddy" highly relatable.

    The posts come four months after the couple announced they had welcomed their daughter following a relatively private pregnancy.

    During an Instagram live in July, Gigi explained that she was keeping her pregnancy private because she felt her presence on social media should instead be used to bring further awareness to things like the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

    "I've felt that it's not really something I need to share apart from with my family and friends," Gigi said at the time.

    "I've been trying to document it 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."

    And while they have yet to reveal their baby's name or face, Gigi has shared a select few photos with fans since giving birth.
