Gigi Hadid Posts More Baby Bump Pictures From Stunning Photo Shoot

At the time, Gigi and Zayn were rumoured to have begun dating, so when she ran into her boyfriend’s former bandmates at the ceremony the model made sure to give them the warmest welcome – proving why she’s known as one of the nicest stars in showbiz.

Two years prior to their meeting, Harry had dated Gigi’s best friend Taylor Swift but the two had an amicable handshake nonetheless.

The supermodel then gave big hugs to Niall, Liam and Louis.

On Twitter, the string of photos have received plenty of attention after fans pointed out Harry was the only one not to receive a hug from Gigi, but Harry extended his hand out first – being the true gentleman that he is.

The awards ceremony would have been a few weeks into Gigi’s blossoming romance with Zayn, around the time they were pictured holding hands in New York.

It wasn’t until February 2016 they confirmed their relationship with a joint photo shoot, one month after Gigi starred in Zayn’s steamy music video for ‘PILLOWTALK’.

Fast forward almost five years and the couple are now preparing to welcome their first baby together.

Shortly after the news broke, Liam was the first of the 1D boys to publicly send his congratulations to the parents-to-be in a YouTube video in May.
