Gigi Hadid first confirmed her pregnancy news with Zayn Malik back in April, but since then has kept her belly out of the camera lens and away from the public eye. Now, the supermodel is opening up about why she's been so discreet, and opens up about her pregnancy journey.

Supermodel Gigi Hadid is glowing! The pregnant 25-year-old is opening up about her pregnancy journey amid many global transitions, and finally shows off that baby bump!

Hadid and her partner and father of their unborn child, Zayn Malik, have been mostly quiet when it comes to her pregnancy, and have shared only selfies from the chest up. Now, the model took to Instagram to discuss why she's been so secretive.

Gigi Hadid talks being pregnant during a pandemic

Normally Hadid is not shy about posting photos of her lavish life, but during her pregnancy, the supermodel is more shy than usual.

"I am so grateful for the positive comments and the questions and wanting just to know that we're all good and safe, and everything's going great and I love you guys. I do appreciate those positive comments," she started her Instagram live video.

"Obviously, I think a lot of people are confused about why I'm not sharing more, but like, I'm pregnant through a pandemic. Obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world," she continued.

She then went on to say that the Coronavirus, which is still going strong in many areas of the United States, is more deserving of attention, as well as the current social and political changes that have gripped the world.

"That's a reason that I've felt that it's not really something that I need to share, apart from with my family and friends," she explained.

"Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus — that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that," she added.

Gigi Hadid not rushed to share pregnancy

Despite not sharing more on social media, the star did assure fans that she is documenting every step of the way, and will share more when she is ready.

"I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family and it's been really cute and exciting, and I'm trying to document it well because I've heard a lot of people say obviously, 'make sure you don't miss it,'" she said.

"And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future," she added, saying that she wants to experience being pregnant not in the public's eye.

"I write in my journal a lot," she said. "I just don't want to worry about waking up every day during my pregnancy and, like, worry about having to like look cute or post something."

She then shared with her fans a little glimpse of her belly, saying that besides not looking that different from the front, when she turns to the side the bump is "definitely there."
