On April 30, Gigi confirmed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that she was expecting her first child, due in September, with Zayn Malik.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the pair have been social distancing at Yolanda's Pennsylvania farm.

"Especially during this time, it's a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day," Gigi told Fallon about her pregnancy.
