Liam Payne is welcoming Zayn Malik into the 1D dads club with open arms.
The singer shared his congratulations to Malik and Gigi Hadid, who announced their pregnancy last week, during a recent Instagram Live.
The couple confirmed their happy news during an at-home episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
They said: “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. 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.”

“Also this week, didn’t really wanna leave it out, wanted to make sure I said something on my own place before I started getting asked about it relentlessly by everybody,” Payne told fans during his livestream. “I just wanted to say congratulations to Zayn and Gigi obviously, you know, they’re having a baby.”
Malik’s fellow One Direction bandmates, Payne and Louis Tomlinson are also proud dads. Payne shares 3-year-old son Bear with Cheryl Cole, while Tomlinson shares son Freddie, 4, with ex Briana Jungwirth.
