"Yeah! It's very exciting news," Dua told The Edge NZ of the baby news. "We're very, very excited."
The 25-year-old Grammy winner said she hadn't been keeping the pregnancy a secret for long, just "a little bit" before the news leaked online this past week.
The baby will be Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik's first child together. Hadid confirmed the exciting news to Jimmy Fallon while making an appearance on "The Tonight Show" on Thursday.
"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,” Hadid said.
She continued: “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.”
Hadid also revealed her current craving: everything bagels. "I eat an everything bagel a day," she said.
She recently reunited with the former One Direction member in December 2019.
