Victoria Secret’s model Gigi Hadid celebrated her 25th birthday with the people closest to her. She had a low-key celebration due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The global health threat caused by Covid-19 has made birthday celebrations much more intimate. Celebrants are forced to relish their birthdays at home and receive greetings from the outside world virtually.
American supermodel Gigi Hadid’s birthday was no exception either. Her birthday this year is the total opposite of how she celebrated her 24th birthday. Last year, the model had a denim-themed party in New York City for her birthday. Famous celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Martha Hunt and Hailee Steinfeld joined the gathering.
Gigi Hadid celebrated with former One Direction member Zayn Malik
This year, Gigi Hadid celebrated her 25th birthday with the ones closest to her heart: her mom Yolanda, her sister Bella, as well as her boyfriend Zayn Malik. On instagram, she shared a sweet but short video of her, together with Bella and Zayn.
In the Boomerang video posted on Instagram, Zayn is sandwiched between the two sisters with his hand on Gigi’s waist who was showing off her birthday balloons.
In addition to the video, Gigi also posted a rare photo of her and her boyfriend Zayn celebrating. The couple were in a joyful embrace with Gigi’s eyes closed and a wide smile plastered on her face. Zayn, on the other hand, was not facing the camera.

“Happy birthday to my best friend, leader, teacher, partner in crime. I wouldn’t be able to do this life without you by my side! Thank you for being the greatest big sister to me that I could ever ask for. I couldn’t have dreamt you up. I am so grateful for everything that you are and I celebrate you not only today, but every day!”
