"Everyone's like, 'Oh, you didn't look pregnant in your jumpsuit on your last Live.' That's because this way [front on], I'm going to look normally how I look in this," Hadid said, before revealing her bare baby bump under her top. "The reason I say it's a different story is like... there's my belly, y'all. Like, it's there. It's just that, from the front, it's different. You know what I mean?"
A source told ET on Thursday that Hadid and her boyfriend, Zayn Malik, are "excited to welcome their daughter very soon."
"Gigi has been enjoying pregnancy and everyone around her knows she'll be the best mom," the source said. "Gigi publicly hasn’t shared much because she knows now is not the time to share everything as there is much more important things going on in the world like coronavirus and BLM. Gigi feels her platform is better used to highlight and bring awareness to those things right now."
"Gigi hasn’t been private with family and friends," the source added. "She’s documented everything and shares photos and her progress with the people around her.”
As for trying to "disguise" her pregnancy, Hadid previously tweeted about the jumpsuit she mentioned while critiquing a British Vogue headline, "Gigi Hadid Reveals How She Disguises Her Pregnancy."
"Disguise ....? 🤨 I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories- not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything," she tweeted on July 4. "Will be proud and happy to share 'insight' when I feel like it, thanks."
"For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones," she added.
On Wednesday's Instagram Live, she assured fans that she hasn't been trying to hide her pregnancy.
"I appreciate your positive messages. I'm just, like, taking my time with sharing my pregnancy, and you guys will see it when you see it," she added on Wednesday's Instagram Live.
"Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while," the source said. "Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year, it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special. The couple and their families are overjoyed."
