Gigi Hadid has hit back at claims she was trying to disguise her baby bump during the early days of her pregnancy.
Back in April, the model announced she was expecting her first child with singer Zayn Malik, and in a recent Instagram Live Q&A, she responded to a question from a fan over why her bump seemed to look so small six months into pregnancy.
“This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion,” Gigi, who is due in September, replied. “From the side it’s a different story! haha – wishing u the best! x.”
Multiple outlets reported on the model’s top tip for keeping her baby news private, but she hit back when British Vogue posted an article on Twitter with the headline, “Gigi Hadid Reveals How She Disguises Her Pregnancy”.
“Disguise ….? I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories – not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything,” the 25-year-old fired. “Will be proud and happy to share ‘insight’ when I feel like it, thanks.”
She continued in a follow-up tweet: “For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.”
Rumours began to swirl about Gigi’s pregnancy when she shared images from her 25th birthday party on Instagram on 23 April, and she confirmed the exciting news during an interview with Jimmy Fallon just days later.
“Obviously, you know, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support so…” she shared, before adding that she’s been craving bagels during her pregnancy.
