Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik and US model Gigi Hadid have welcomed a “healthy and beautiful” baby.
Malik, 27, announced the birth on Twitter and shared a black and white picture of the girl̵
He wrote next to the picture: “The love I feel for this tiny person is incomprehensible to me.”
Hadid, 25, confirmed that she was expecting in April when she appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
She told the US chat show host that she and Malik were “happy and grateful for everyone’s good wishes and support.”
The couple moved in and out since the end of 2015.
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.
The announcement came hours after the singer teased his first new music since 2018’s Icarus Falls album.
Malik tweeted a short section of the Better track, revealing that it will arrive on Friday.
Earlier this week, Hadid’s father Mohamed wrote in a caption on Instagram that he was “patiently” waiting for the baby.
He added that “Grandpa” was “here, waiting to meet you … so excited”.
