Gigi's boyfriend Cody fulfilled her wish

The couple have reportedly already been celebrating Gigi's birthday, with a source telling E! News that they had held a "very private" dinner party with friends and family at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.

No doubt the rising star was keen to make the most of a rare night off amidst her hectic work schedule. Not only has she walked for some of the biggest designers during Fashion Week, but she is also currently the face of cosmetics giant Maybelline New York. Earlier this week the American star was spotted posing at a photoshoot in New York for the brand, alongside Victoria's Secret angel Adriana Lima.

Gigi revealed earlier this year that she had landed the highly coveted beauty campaign, in a short video shared on her Instagram account. The clip sees the Tommy Hilfiger model answering a quick-fire round of questions before being asked, "Tell us something nobody knows about you."

"I'm the new face of Maybelline New York," she replies, beaming at the camera.
