The 27-year-old Malik posted the happy news on Twitter on Sept. 23.
“Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” the proud new papa tweeted. “The love i feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together.”

First-time mom Hadid also welcomed her little girl to the world with some loving words and a photo on Instagram.
“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world,” Hadid posted on her Instagram account. The sweet post currently has over 10 million likes.
Malik and Hadid began dating in 2015 and have gone through some tumultuous times together. They split up in 2018 but later reconciled, only to separate again briefly in early 2019.
However, the couple couldn’t seem to stay apart, and they reignited their romance in the winter of late 2019 and early 2020. Hadid confirmed the rumors with a Feb. 14 Instagram post featuring Malik as her “valentine.”
Then, in April fans started wondering if Hadid was expecting a baby due to a series of Instagram posts from the supermodel’s 25th birthday and some recipes she shared. TMZ then posted a story that speculated about the pregnancy, and later, the gossip site confirmed the news from family members.
Ultimately, Hadid went on “The Tonight Show” to talk about the unexpected leak of her secret.
“Obviously, we wish they could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well-wishes and support,” she told Jimmy Fallon.
Now, the new parents seem happy to share the news with the world — though we’re still waiting to learn the little one’s name!
Congratulations to the new mom and dad!
