The Lip Sync Battle host headed online to offer her congratulations to the couple as well as congratulating Shahs of Sunset star Golnesa ‘GG’ Gharachedaghi, who gave birth to her first child this week.

“Gigi Hadid is pregnant and Gigi from shahs had her baby today!!! it is a big day for gigis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats to all Gigis!!!! [sic],” the mum-of-two tweeted.

Hadid has previously hinted at her hope to start a family in an interview with iD magazine: “I think that as I get older … well one day I’ll start a family and I don’t know if I will always be modelling. 

“I love the creative side of fashion, it’s so fulfilling. The people I work with make me so happy, I’m so lucky to be around them. But who knows? Maybe I’ll take up full time cooking!”
