Yesterday, Gigi Hadid shared a photo of herself exactly one year ago, walking the Jacquemus show while secretly pregnant with her first child.
When a fan asked Hadid if she knew she was pregnant then or if she found out afterwards, Hadid replied, revealing that she’d found out a week prior, specifically the day before Tom Ford’s menswear show on January 12th. “I was so nauseous backstage,” she wrote. “But I learned I could kinda control it if I continuously ate, so my mom would pack me snacks before each show. Bless”
Hadid went on to travel to London and Europe to complete the fashion month circuit, where her friend Taylor Swift – who splits her time between the US and UK with her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn – stepped in to help out.
The 25-year-old noted that her worst day with the nausea was backstage at the Burberry show in London on February 17th, adding that she had a lot of pregnancy cravings.
“It went in waves,” she said in response to a fan’s question about her favourite food to eat during pregnancy. “Everything bagels/ extra cream cheese, triple chunk brownies for breakfast- sourdough toast & tomato olive oil salad w lots of salt and pepper lol … and Z’s ribs w fries,” she wrote. “Random.”
“Also arugula salads !!!,” she added. “But during fashion month in Europe it was hard to find bagels so I ate mostly bread & Dutch cheese (except for in London, Taylor gave me bagels).”

But during fashion month in Europe it was hard to find bagels so I ate mostly bread & Dutch cheese☺️ (except for in London, Taylor gave me bagels🥺)
Backstage at Burberry was the hardest day with the nausea, I remember.

Hadid and her partner, musician Zayn Malik, welcomed their daughter (whose named hasn’t been publicly revealed) in September 2020. At the time, Hadid shared that Swift had made her a pink blanket as a baby gift.
Oh, to count Taylor Swift – singer, knitter and bagel-making extraordinaire – as a BFF.
