Gigi Hadid is eight months pregnant with her first child

Speaking to fans at the beginning of her nearly 90-minute long Q&A, the star opened up about her pregnancy, and revealed why she is being so secretive.

"A lot of the questions were not regarding the journal, [they] were regarding my pregnancy which I am so grateful for. The positive comments and the questions just wanted to know that we're all good and safe and everything's going great and I love you guys and I do appreciate those positive comments," she began to explain to her fans.

"Obviously, I think a lot of people are confused why I am not sharing more but I am pregnant through a pandemic… obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world. That's a reason that I felt like it's not really something that I need to share apart with my family and friends."

She added: "Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus. That was in the beginning of quarantine and it's still happening and then we moved into the re-emergence of the BLM movement and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that."

Reassuring her fans that they will see pictures of her pregnancy sometime in the future, she continued: "I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump, and sending it to friends and family and it has been cute and exciting and I'm trying to document it well because I've hear a lot of people say 'make sure you don't miss it' and I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I am not rushed to do it and I feel like right now I want to experience it and I write in my journal a lot."

The star later explained that she has enjoyed wearing loose clothes during the last trimester of her pregnancy and then gave fans a little glimpse of her bump.

"There's my belly, ya'll," she said whilst posing on her side and smiling at the camera.
