New mum Gigi Hadid has offered heartfelt thanks to fans, weeks after welcoming her first child.
Model Gigi, 25, and crooner boyfriend Zayn Malik, 27, delighted fans last month with the announcement of the birth of their baby daughter.
Now an emotional Gigi has taken the time to put into words her feelings after being met with a wave of good will and gifts from her and Zayn’e legions of adoring fans.
In a handwritten note, Gigi shared: “I just want to put out there…while I have the time, that when I do Thank You’s on here, I think of the so many generous gifts we have received that haven’t gotten a public ‘thanks’…
“I am overwhelmed with how many beautiful things this little one has already been spoiled with by people I love – and I will slowly probably share them.
“BUT thank you cards are on their way – if I have not posted about something, it is not from a lack of gratitude. Just a new mom trying to get it all sorted while she naps!
“SO MUCH LOVE. SO MUCH GRATITUDE. WE ARE BLESSED. IF YOU HAVE SENT SOMETHING, EVEN A MESSAGE, THANK YOU. I LOVE YOU X G.”
It was Gigi’s mum Yolanda who shared the first snap of her newborn granddaughter.
She shared a snap of the tot’s hands wrapping about her fingers, writing: “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.”
Gigi and Zayn – who’ve dated on-off since 2015 – are yet to share a snap of their daughter’s face, but have been sure to unveil some of the gifts they’ve received.
They announced her birth in separate posts, Gigi telling: “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
Zayn, meanwhile, wrote: “Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful.
“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, and thankful for the life we will have together x.”
