Gigi Hadid is opening up about her journey to becoming a new mom—including her first round of pregnancy cravings.
During a virtual interview on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, Hadid confirmed that she is expecting her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik. While chatting, she also revealed that the first big pregnancy craving she cannot stop consuming is a classic breakfast staple: an everything bagel with cream cheese. The model’s specific hankering for the delicious baked good explains why she rang in her 25th birthday last weekend with an over-the-top everything bagel-shaped cake.
“In the morning, my family brought out an everything bagel cake, which already blew my mind, because my craving has been everything bagels,” said Hadid. “I eat an everything bagel a day, so I was so excited that my birthday cake was an everything bagel.”

Had the sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family, who made it so special for me, along with all the love I felt from all over the world! Thank you to everyone for the birthday messages, I carried you with me yesterday!! 💛🙏 I am grateful and lucky that my family and friends -near and far- are healthy and safe, and although I missed loved ones I wish I could have celebrated with, know that these times will make us even more grateful for togetherness to be had in the future ! I will never forget my 25th bday! +++The icing on the perfect quarantine bday was finding out my surprise everything-bagel-cake was made by the one and only Cake Boss @buddyvalastro who I have watched for over a decade. I CRIED REAL TEARS! BUDDY! This is a dream come true. I can’t believe you made this cake for me while the bakery is closed. It means more to me than you know, and when we hopefully meet some day you will truly know that there almost isn’t an episode I’ve missed. 10/10 would be a Carlo’s intern whenever needed. 😆 Grateful, honored, your biggest fan. 🥯🥯🥯🥯🍰
Hadid also revealed that famed baker Buddy Valastro of Cake Boss created her special birthday confection, a surprise the model loved so much it reportedly brought her to tears.
“I don’t know if it was my hormones right now or just like quarantine emotional-ness, but I cried every five minutes for an hour every time I thought about that Buddy made my cake. I couldn’t stop crying,” said Hadid. “I was just so happy. Honored that he would make my cake during quarantine.”
Yesterday’s interview marked the first time Hadid confirmed the news of her pregnancy. She also shared that even amid the uncertainty of the coronavirus crisis, she’s grateful to be able to experience her first pregnancy surrounded by close family at home.
“Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and together, and really experience it day by day,” she said.
