Despite the stresses of the transition to motherhood, things seem to be going well for the catwalk star so far.
‘Gigi is very tired but is already an amazing mom,’ a source told E! News earlier this month. ‘The first couple of weeks have been a hard transition but she hasn’t complained and is very elated to be a mom.
‘They feel peaceful staying at [the Hadid farm] for now. Gigi wants the most privacy for their baby and wants to be able to raise her privately.’
