Gigi Hadid has criticised British Vogue after the publication shared an article claiming Gigi Hadid was “disguising” her pregnancy.

The 25-year-old model is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Zayn Malik.

Hadid has not yet publicly shared any photographs of her growing baby bump.

Last week, British Vogue published an article with the headline “Gigi Hadid reveals how she disguises her pregnancy”.

The article quoted Hadid’s comments from a recent Instagram Live in which she was asked why she did not “have a tummy”.

“This angle and the really baggy jumpsuit make for an optical illusion. From the side it’s a different story!” Hadid replied with regards to the khaki Isabel Marant overalls she was wearing.

On Sunday, the magazine tweeted out a link to the article with the caption: “.@GiGiHadid is yet to post a picture showing her baby bump, but her genius disguise gives an insight into her lockdown pregnancy.”

But Hadid replied to clarify that she was not trying to hide her pregnancy.

“Disguise ....?” she tweeted alongside an eyebrow raising emoji.

“I said in a baggy jumpsuit the front and side views are visually different stories – not that that was intentional or I was trying to hide anything.”

The model continued: “Will be proud and happy to share ‘insight’ when I feel like it, thanks.

“For now I am proudly experiencing and sharing this time with my family and loved ones.”

Hadid confirmed her pregnancy in April during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

Reports began circulating that the model was pregnant earlier that week, with her mother Yolanda confirming the news on Wednesday.

Speaking to Fallon from home, Hadid explained that she and Malik had hoped to announce the news themselves.

“Obviously we wish we could have announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she said.

Hadid added that “it’s a nice silver lining” to be pregnant during lockdown with Malik and “really experience it day by day”.

The Independent has contacted British Vogue for comment.
