‘Every year, I think I couldn’t love, look up to, or learn from her more — and then I do. She’s the best mom and Oma we could ever ask for. So blessed. I LOVE YOU, THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING. Wishing you the best year.’
Gigi referred to her mother by the Dutch word Oma, meaning grandmother, a term she previously used for her own grandmother.

On her own Instagram page, Yolanda posted an adorable photo with her baby daughter, whose name Gigi and Zayn haven’t yet revealed.
My birthday blessings,’ she wrote. ‘When I woke up this morning and counted all my blessings in life this little Angel was ranked #1.
‘It’s a whole new feeling, I’m feeling… a part of my heart I didn’t know existed,’ she continued.
‘A empty hole in my heart that can’t be filled with anything else but love, respect and gratitude for the woman that gave birth to me, loved and guided me through the ups and downs of life,’ she added.
‘I always knew she was crazy for her grand kids but this is the first time I truly understand the depth of how much she loved my children and how blessed they were to have her influence in their lives….’
Whoops! The Dutch–American model shared a sweet photo of her with Gigi and Zayn’s daughter, but she accidentally posted a version with her face showing before deleting and reposting
Although Gigi and Zayn have opted not to show their child’s face, her mother accidentally revealed the baby’s image in an earlier version of her post that included a mirror in the photo.
She quickly deleted the image and uploaded a cropped version of the photo.
Gigi and the former One Direction singer, who celebrated his birthday just after Yolanda on Tuesday, have been together on and off since 2015.
In April 2020, the model confirmed that she was expecting her first child with Zayn.
She later gave birth in September of that year, reportedly at the rural Pennsylvania farm her mother owns, where she and her sister Bella spent much of their quarantine period last year.
