Palestinian-American supermodel Gigi Hadid revealed to her 55 million followers on social media her baby bump for the first time during an Instagram live.
“There’s my belly y’all,” she said, as she unbuttoned her top and turned sideways to show her growing belly.
The 25-year-old model said she had been quiet about her pregnancy on social media as she felt it was “not the most important thing going on in the world.”
“That’s a reason that I felt that it’s not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends,” she continued.
“Obviously, a lot of people have lost lives due to (the) coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening,” Hadid expressed, elaborating on her decision to refrain from sharing.
“And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that.”
“I just am not rushed [to share],” she added, stating: “I just don’t want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and like worry about having to like look cute or post something.”
