Gigi Hadid has taken to her social media channels to share an adorable photograph of her newborn child.

The model shared the snap, just hours after Zayn confirmed the arrival of their daughter.

Gigi first confirmed her pregnancy in April 2020, months after sparking speculation she was ready to start a family with the former One Direction singer.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the model, 25, stepped out of the public eye as she believed there were more important issues in the world.

Alongside a black and white photograph of Gigi cradling the newborn, she penned: "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she's already changed our world. So in love."

Her snap which raked in almost 2 million likes in less than an hour was instantly bombarded with celebratory messages from fans and celebrity pals.

Model Emily Ratajkowski commented: "Congratulations Gigi & Zayn!"

While pal Hailey Bieber added: "Welcome baby girl! So happy for you guys!!"

"Ahhhh!!!!! HUGE congrats!!!!! I can't wait to meet this angel," exclaimed Olivia Culpo.

"To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. 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."

Gigi's dad Mohamed Hadid sparked speculation earlier in the month that the star had given birth.

The former Olympian shared an emotional handwritten message to his granddaughter on his Instagram page.

"I wish for you the sun and moon. I wish for you a happy time."

He added: "Know that grandpa's always near, I'll do anything, anything for you my dear."

Mohamed concluded with: "When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried the tear because I knew my heart would always belong to you."
