"Obviously, we wished 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," Gigi told the host from The Tonight Show.

“Especially during this time it's a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day,” she added.

On Wednesday Gigi Hadid's mother Yolanda Hadid has also shared the family’s excitement at the happy news.

“Still shocked our little secret got leaked to the press,” she reportedly told Dutch talk show RTL Boulevard.

“Of course we are so excited. I'm excited to become Oma in September especially after I lost my mom so recently.

“But this is the beauty of life, one soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”

Gigi is believed to be expecting a baby girl, with fans online claiming the model’s recent birthday party doubled as a gender reveal.

Family sources also reported the model - who is believed to be 20 weeks pregnant - recently had a scan to determine the sex of the baby, which revealed she and Zayn will become the proud parents of a daughter.

“Gigi has kept the secret close to her family and friends for a while, as she's only a few months along,” another insider said earlier this week.

“Once Gigi and Zayn got back together at the end of last year, it was like they never skipped a beat and knew what they had was special. The couple and their families are overjoyed.”

Gigi previously hinted at the possibility of starting a family with the former One Direction star, as she said she's looking forward to her future outside of modelling.

“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,” she said.

“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!”
