Zayn Malik has announced he and Gigi Hadid have welcomed a “healthy & beautiful” daughter.
The former One Direction singer, 27, posted a black-and-white picture of the baby’s tiny hand clutching his tattooed finger.
He wrote alongside the sweet snap: “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.”
US model Hadid, 25, confirmed she was expecting in April, telling chat show host Jimmy Fallon she and Malik were “happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support”.
The new arrival came hours after Zayn teased his first new music since 2018 album Icarus Falls. He tweeted a short section of the track Better, revealing it will arrive on Friday.The love i feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding
Malik is the third member of One Direction to become a father. Louis Tomlinson welcomed son Freddie in January 2016 while Liam Payne has a three-year-old son, Bear, with singer Cheryl.
Los Angeles-born Hadid and Bradford-born Malik have been dating on and off since late 2015.
Last week, Hadid’s father Mohamed shared a message on social media for the unborn baby.“Hello little grandchild, it is me, my heart as happy as can be,” he wrote.
“I wish for you the sun & moon, I wish for you a happy time. Know that grandpa’s always here, I’ll do anything, anything for you, my dear.”
