Malik confirmed last month he and girlfriend Gigi had welcomed their daughter. "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful," he wrote in a Sept. 23 social media post.

"To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task," he continued. "The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x."

Alongside another black-and-white photo, which showed the infant's adorable tiny hand gently wrapped around one of Malik's fingers, Gigi celebrated her bundle of joy's arrival. "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love🥺💕," the proud parent captioned the post.

In the months leading up to her grandchild's birth, Yolanda couldn't help but share how "blessed" she felt.

“Waiting patiently for her angel to be born......” Yolanda captioned one black-and-white photograph which showed her smiling while hugging her daughter's baby bump. Alongside the sweet snap, she also shared a second close-up photo in which both she and younger daughter Bella Hadid, 23, lovingly placed their hands on Gigi's belly.

"Of course we are so excited," Yolanda told Dutch outlet RTL Boulevard back in April.

"I'm excited to become a Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently. But this is the beauty of life: One soul leaves us and a new one comes in," she added. "We feel very blessed."
