Inside Gigi Hadid’s 26th Birthday Party in New York City

The party involved a grilled cheese truck, lots of PDA, and SO MANY balloons.

Gigi Hadid celebrated her 26th birthday in New York City Friday night, surrounded by her closest loved ones.

The model rang in her birthday with her longtime love Zayn Malik (with whom she shares daughter Khai) and her mom and sister, Yolanda and Bella Hadid.

Early in the day, Gigi shared a picture of the gorgeous flowers Zayn gifted her in honor of her big day in an Instagram Story post simply captioned, “Wow @zayn.”

As pictures from the day emerged, however, the gift got even sweeter because it appears as though Gigi’s younger sister, Bella, may have hand-delivered the arrangement for Zayn. Behold:

As the day went on, decorations for the actual party—including more flowers and what appears to be approximately 100 billion balloons (courtesy of Balloon Saloon), were delivered:

At the party itself, the main attraction was an appearance by the Gorilla Cheese NYC grilled-cheese truck, which Gigi, Zayn, Bella, and Yolanda, who brought her boyfriend, Joseph Jingoli, were all photographed congregating in front of.

Some of the sweetest moments, however, came when Gigi and Zayn shared little moments of PDA, like these:

Gigi wore a matching blue Shield knit top and Tent knit pants from Isa Boulder for the big night:

Bella opted for a tiger striped, cropped body suit and orange pants:

tl;dr: Gigi Hadid’s 26th birthday party looks like it was incredible.

As amazing as the party was, however, one of the highlights of Gigi’s birthday celebration was digital, in the form of the sweet tributes Bella posted to her on Instagram.

“I wouldn’t be able to do this life without you @gigihadid,” Bella captioned a gallery of pictures of her and Gigi together. “Thank you for all that you have taught me and for always supporting me the way you do. Happy Birthday bestie . I love you so much🫀.”

Then, in a tissue-worthy move, Bella shared another gallery of shots, this time showing her and Gigi growing up—and including a picture of them out together in NYC with her niece, Khai. She captioned the sweet post, “The circle of life is crazy @gigihadid.”
