Gigi Hadid has been keeping her pregnancy private since the news broke back in April, and it appears her father, Mohamed Hadid, is also helping her uphold her privacy.

In a recent photo the Palestinian-born real estate mogul posted to Instagram, Hadid cleverly hid his daughter’s baby bump.

The supermodel was seen enjoying a picnic in the sunshine to celebrate her friend Leah McCarty’s birthday along with her siblings Bella and Anwar, as well as his girlfriend Dua Lipa.

However, it’s likely you’d have had to a double-take upon inspecting the photo as Mohamed covered up his daughter’s bump with a fairy emoji, which upon first glance could be easily mistaken for a birthday decoration.


Ironically, Gigi recently clarified that she isn’t trying to disguise her baby bump.

Responding to a story posted by British Vogue last week, titled ‘Gigi Hadid Reveals How She Disguises Her Pregnancy’, the supermodel took to Twitter to clarify some things.

“Disguise ….? I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories- not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything,” the 25-year-old said.

She also added she will be sharing “insight” to her pregnancy on her own terms and when she “feels like it”.

“For now, I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones,” she concluded.

The model, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik, first spoke of her pregnancy during a video call appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, admitting they would have liked to reveal the news on their “own terms”, but also thanked everyone for their congratulations.

“Obviously, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she said.

It’s been reported Gigi and Zayn are expecting a girl, but neither of them has officially confirmed the gender. The couple are expecting to welcome their first child together around September time.
