Gigi Hadid is a firm believer in every cloud having its silver lining.
In a recent interview with InStyle, the 26-year-old model opened up about one of the key things she says she’s learned from reflecting on the past year. “I’ve been reminded that when we get time with people,” she shared, “just really appreciate it and take it all in and try not to wish away moments. Even if there’s something hard, find something beautiful in it.”
Her revelation comes just a little more than three months after she and longtime love Zayn Malik, 29, called it quits.
The two, who had been on-again, off-again since 2015, are parents to 16-month-old daughter Khai, who Gigi calls “awesome.”
“She’s just so smart, and she’s so aware,” she told the outlet. “She watches everything, she’s always learning, she’s always looking…I still can’t believe it. It’s wild. A lot of my mom friends feel like that, and we’re nearing the first couple years [with our kids]. You’re obsessed with them, but sometimes you turn and you’re like, “Oh my god. Where did you come from?”
