'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.' 

An insider told Us Weekly magazine last month that the couple had been getting along great ahead of the birth of their baby.

'[They are] closer than ever. Gigi has been living at her mom’s farm with Zayn,' the source revealed. 'She came back to NYC recently but she plans to spend most of her pregnancy there at the farm.'
