Gigi, 25, showed off her pregnancy figure in a fittingly stylish manner on Wednesday morning, sharing a series of black-and-white photos on Instagram posing in elegant, sheer outfits that displayed her silhouette.

While sharing the poignant maternity images, Gigi reflected on her experiences on the road toward welcoming her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik.

"Growin an angel :)," she captioned one snapshot that showed her resting on her knees as she cradled her stomach. On another post, Gigi wrote simply, "7.26.20 🕊."

"Cherishing this time. appreciate all the love & well wishes ♡," she captioned a third post. "Will never forget creating these special images with my friends @luigiandiango @gabriellak_j @erinparsonsmakeup thank you. I love you!"

Gigi putting her baby bump on full display comes about a month and a half after the star explained why she was being protective about sharing and disclosing too much about her pregnancy.

"Obviously, I think a lot of people are confused why I'm not sharing more, but like, I'm pregnant through a pandemic. Like, obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world," she continued, sharing that she believes current world events (like the ongoing COVID-19 global health crisis and the Black Lives Matter movement) deserve more focus than her pregnancy.

"That's a reason that I've felt that it's not really something that I need to share, apart from with my family and friends," Gigi explained at the time. "Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus — that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening."

"And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that," the model added.
