In one photo, Gigi, 25, and Malik, 27, happily pose together as they hold up a cake with white frosting and a pink sponge in the center.

Another shot showed the pair hugging Yolanda after the dessert was cut open.

Gigi and Malik announced the birth of their daughter in September, with the latter first to confirm her arrival with a Twitter message.

"Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful," the "PILLOWTALK" singer wrote on Sept. 23, alongside a photo of the newborn holding onto his finger. "to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task."

"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," he added at the time.

Yolanda also gushed about the little one, writing on her Instagram at the time, "My heart is expending with so much love and joy for this little baby girl she is an angel sent to us from above....."

“Thank you Mommy & Daddy for making me a Oma, I love every minute of it 🥰" she added in a sweet shout-out to the new parents.

Since the birth of her child, Gigi — who held off on posting photos of her baby bump during her pregnancy — has begun sharing glimpses of her journey to motherhood on social media.

Recently, the new mom posted a series of photographs taken during her final leg of pregnancy.

In one throwback shot shared on her Instagram Story, a then-pregnant Gigi can be seen posing in a dark outfit as she takes a mirror selfie.
