The RHOBH star admitted to being “still shocked” over it all but said: “Of course we are so excited. I’m excited to become a grandmother in September especially after I lost my mom so recently.”
Speaking to the Dutch broadcasting station RTL Boulevard she added: “But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
Happy news: Gigi Hadid’s mother Yolanda Foster has confirmed her daughter’s pregnancy news with boyfriend Zayn Malik in a new interview.
Yolanda, 56, also exclaimed: “I can’t wait to become a grandmother.”
In August last year, the former supermodel revealed her mother Ans van den Herik had passed away at the age of 78 following a battle with cancer.
Yolanda shared a series of sweet black and white throwback snaps at the time, alongside the emotional caption: ‘RIP my guardian angel Mama, Thank you for loving me the way the way that you did and for making me the woman that I am today.’
Excited: Yolanda, 56, exclaimed: “I can’t wait to become a grandmother.”
Gigi also posted a tribute to her late grandmother last year, sharing a snap of herself as a young child wearing fairy wings, with the caption: ‘Rest in paradise’.
Meanwhile, TMZ confirmed news Wednesday morning that the pair are expecting a baby girl.
The report was made amid rampant speculation from fans, who had noted that Gigi’s 25th birthday celebration last week featured pink balloons, pink ‘Hello Little One’ gift bags and pink cakes.

The website reported that Zayn and Gigi had indeed shared their happy news with family and friends.
In an effort to hide her happy news a little longer, 20 weeks pregnant Bella had covered up the writing on the front with a sunflower graphic.
Despite the happy news, it’s been a rocky four-year relationship for the couple, who have been known to be on-and-off.
The pair reconciled in December last year after a year long split, during which time she briefly dated former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron.

Fashion family: Yolanda and Gigi in February this year at Milan Fashion Week, Italy
On her birthday Gigi was seen in a black turtleneck tucked into her belted, washed jeans. She was showing a bit of a baby bump. Gigi and Zayn were also photographed in a warm embrace as she had a beautiful glow with a makeup-free face.
In February, Gigi hinted that she was thinking of having children. During an interview with i-D Magazine she said, ‘I think that as I get older, well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modeling.
‘I love the creative side of fashion, it’s so fulfilling. The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking!’
The two started dating in 2015 when they met on the set of his music video for Pillow Talk. Fans caught on that they were a couple when the pair were photographed leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Awards after-party together.
