Gigi Hadid’s father writes a poem to unborn granddaughter

  • ‘My heart as happy as can be,’ wrote to grandfather-to-be to the family’s long-awaited bundle of joy
  • The 25-year-old catwalk star is expecting her first child with former One Direction star Zayn Malik

DUBAI: Supermodel Gigi Hadid’s father, Mohamed Hadid – the Palestinian real estate mogul – shared a heartfelt message this week for his future granddaughter, who Gigi is expected to give birth to this month.

The property developer, in a now deleted Instagram post, started his words with: “In the name of God, the most gracious, the most merciful,” which he wrote in Arabic text. 

“Hello little grandchild, it is me, my heart as happy as can be,” he then wrote to the family’s long-awaited bundle of joy. 

“I wish for you the sun and moon, I wish for you a happy time. Know that grandpa’s always here, I’ll do anything, anything for you, my dear,” his poem read. “When I heard you were on the way, I smiled and wiped a tear away. I cried the tear because I knew my heart would always belong to you.”

The 25-year-old catwalk star and mother-to-be, who is part-Dutch, is expecting her first child with former One Direction star Zayn Malik anytime now.

Some curious fans made assumptions that Mohamed’s poem hints that the couple have welcomed their baby girl, but before he deleted his post, he replied to one of the social media users saying: “Not yet.”

For the most part, Gigi has kept mum when it comes to sharing details of her pregnancy.

The 25-year-old shared a series of ethereal, black and white images, which were lensed by fashion photography duo Luigi and Iango.

“Cherishing this time. Appreciate all the love & well wishes,” read one of her posts, while the other said “Growing an angel.”

Paris Hilton dazzles in Kuwaiti designer’s gown in new music video

 

DUBAI: Former reality star Paris Hilton has released a new music video, “I Blame You,” in which she wears a glitzy gown by Kuwaiti designer-to-the-stars Yousef Al-Jasmi. 

 

The 39-year-old singer and actress chose a form-fitting silver dress with a high collar.

Hilton dedicated the song to her partner, the author and entrepreneur Carter Reum, who appears in clips in the video. The star has known Reum for 15 years, but they have only been dating since November 2019.

Apart from the romantic tribute, Hilton’s song also comes with a good cause. 

In a teaser video the hotel heiress shared on Instagram before the release, she said that all the proceeds from “I Blame You” will go to Breaking Code Silence, an organization that provides therapeutic treatments for children with trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Hilton has been vocal about mental health after her recent YouTube documentary, “This Is Paris,” revealed she is still coping from trauma she experienced at a boarding school as a child. In the documentary, Hilton claimed she and other students suffered mental and physical abuse from the school staff.

Hilton was not the only star to be spotted in Al-Jasmi’s creation in recent days. On Oct. 15, US singer Alicia Keys showed off a sparkling bodysuit by the designer during her performance at the Billboard Music Awards.

Al-Jasmi’s signature glittering looks have also been worn by stars including American singers Mariah Carey and Kelly Rowland, and media personality and socialite Khloe Kardashian.
