"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," Hadid said, sharing that she believes current world events — like the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and the Black Lives Matter movement — deserve more focus than her pregnancy.

"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 explained. However, Hadid did promise fans that she would be documenting the experience and would eventually share more. "I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family and it's been really cute and exciting, and I'm trying to document it well because I've heard a lot of people say obviously, 'Make sure you don't miss it,' " she said.
