Updated article on 21/01/21: Gigi Hadid has revealed that BFF Taylor Swift helped her curb early pregnancy cravings and nausea.

Like most new expectant mothers, the model has been open about her experience of cravings that came in 'waves' and largely involved bagels.

On January 18 the model noted that her pregnancy food cravings included: 'Everything bagels/ extra cream cheese, triple chunk brownies for breakfast- sourdough toast & tomato olive oil salad w lots of salt and pepper lol ... and Z’s ribs w fries. Random. [sic]'

The new mum also revealed that at London Fashion Week, her friend Swift actually took over the snack supplier reigns from the model's mother, Yolanda Hadid.

In her tweet the 25-year-old continued by explaining that her cravings bizarrely included arugula salads.

'But during fashion month in Europe it was hard to find bagels so I ate mostly bread & Dutch cheese (except for in London, Taylor gave me bagels). Backstage at Burberry was the hardest day with the nausea, I remember. [sic]'

The Burberry show in London took place on February 17.

Swift -the now 'official' bagel sponsor of fashion week - is likely to have been in London due to the fact she splits her time between the US and UK with her British boyfriend Joe Alwyn.

Gigi Hadid has given fans a rare glimpse into her personal life by confirming the exact date she found out she was pregnant with her daughter.

Since giving birth to her first child, with partner Zayn Malik, in September last year, the model has been super low key when in comes to how much she shares about her newborn.

But on January 18, Hadid revealed that she found out that she was pregnant the 'day before she walked in the Tom Ford show' during New York Fashion Week, during a Twitter exchange with one fan.

The exchange began when a fan asked her: 'When did you walk for Jacquemus, did you already know that you were pregnant? Or you only knew after?'

To which the mother of one replied: 'I found out the day before the Tom Ford show 🤯 I was so nauseous backstage 😅 but I learned I could kinda control it if I continuously ate, so my mom would pack me snacks before each show 🥖 🧀 bless,'

Quick deduction based on fashion month protocols and dates makes it clear that as
Jacquemus Autumn/Winter 2020 show took place on January 18, 2020, in Paris France and the Tom Ford show took place on February 7, 2020 in Hollywood, Gigi and Zayn would have found out the amazing news on February 6, 2020.

As fashion month begins to gear up again, the 25-year-old model took to Instagram on Monday January 18, to share a photo memory from her iconic hair-flicking walk in the Jacquemus show one year on, writing: 'My baby girl 🥜 was in there ✨'

As we now know at the time, Hadid might not have known at the time she was pregnant with her daughter, but she does now. What a great story for Hadid to be able to share with her daughter.
