To say the least Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have been killing it at parenthood which had us wondering if they would adopt us all! But after months of keeping it hush about caring for a newborn, the star is back to modeling, recently the model had an interview with Vogue to discuss what her experience of giving birth to her first child last year.

Hadid had initial plans to give birth at a New York City hospital but last minute opted for a home birth at a farm where she and Zayn are currently residing with their child. As well as keeping mother Yolanda and sister Bella close with her there.
If you think Gigi can’t handle pain think again! It was revealed that the model took 14 hours of labour, but thankfully by her side through it all was Zayn, her mom, her midwife, and the midwife’s assistant to guide her through the process.
And guess this, she did not get an epidural! This woman is strong!
“I had to dig deep…I knew it was going to be the craziest pain in my life, but you have to surrender to it and be like, ‘This is what it is.’ I loved that. There definitely was a point where I was like, I wonder what it would be like with an epidural, how it would be different. My midwife looked at me and was like, ‘You’re doing it. No one can help you. You’re past the point of the epidural anyway, so you’d be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed.’ Afterward, Z and I looked at each other and were like, we can have some time before we do that again.”
Sounds like daughter Khai is going to have the most magical childhood with a strong and brave mom and a doting dad, Zayn Malik.
