The model told Vogue that she gave birth at her home in Pennsylvania following a 14 hour labor.

Her boyfriend Zayn, her mother Yolanda, her sister Bella, a local midwife and her assistant were all with her at the time.

She recalled how, 'crazy,' she must have looked when it happened.

Gigi said, 'When you see someone do that, you look at them a bit differently.'

'I probably looked crazy, actually. I was an animal woman,' she admitted.

The 25-year-old said it, 'didn't even click,' that her baby had arrived until she saw Zayn holding her.

She recalled, 'I was so exhausted, and I looked up and he’s holding her. It was so cute.'

It turns out they had originally planned to welcome their child at a hospital in New York.

But when the pandemic hit, they decided on a home birth.

Labour

When she went into labor, they had a blow-up bath brought into their bedroom.

And they spent the early hours watching The Indian in the Cupboard together

The model gave birth without an epidural, and said she previously prepared herself for, 'the craziest pain in [her] life.'

'There definitely was a point where I was like, I wonder what it would be like with an epidural, how it would be different.'

She recalled, 'My midwife looked at me and was like, ‘You’re doing it. No one can help you.''

''You’re past the point of the epidural anyway, so you’d be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed.''

'I know my mom and Zayn and Bella were proud of me, but at certain points I saw each of them in terror.'

'Afterward, Z and I looked at each other and were like, we can have some time before we do that again.'
