Liam, who was in One Direction with Zayn, appeared over the moon for his former bandmate after it was revealed that the couple are expecting a baby girl later this year.

The singer, who has three-year-old son Bear with ex Cheryl, took to his Instagram Live to congratulate the happy couple on their news.

“I just wanted to say congratulations to Zayn and Gigi obviously, you know, they’re having a baby.”

Liam’s words come just days after Gigi confirmed she’s expecting just months after she and Zayn rekindled their relationship.

Speaking on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, the 25 year old couldn't contain her excitement as the TV host gushed: "I love you so much! Welcome and thank you for doing our show.

"And I gotta say congratulations on expecting a baby, it's the best news ever."

Gigi, who could be seen hiding her baby bump underneath a red and black tartan coat, couldn't help but smile as she said: "Thank you so much! Obviously, we wish we could've announced it on our own terms. But we're really excited and grateful for everyone's well wishes."

After Jimmy, 45, called it "a ray of sunshine" amid all the chaos of the coronavirus pandemic, she continued: "It's a nice silver lining to be home and enjoy it and really experience it day by day."
