Hadid was dressed in a striped button-down shirt in all three photos, which she showed open-faced to show off her then-present baby bump.
The model also wore a black bra and white reflective shorts while posing for the photos.
Her typically pretty wavy dark brown hair partially covered her face in two of the shots, falling on her shoulders and back.
The internet personality and her 28-year-old partner were initially romantically linked in the later months of 2015.
Before becoming involved with the former One Direction member, she was in a relationship with singers Cody Simpson and Joe Jonas.

Rumors about the two circulated for months before Malik confirmed in February 2016 that they were in a relationship.
The pair remained strong for over a year before initially calling it quits in March 2018, though they reconciled a second time the following year and parted ways before getting back together.
The pair worked on their relationship for a long time before rumors circulated about Hadid’s pregnancy in April last year.

Nothing solid: Although the couple broke up several times over the course of their relationship, each time they reconciled and rumors of their potential parenthood started circulating in April last year.
That same month, she appeared on The Late Show With Jimmy Fallon and confirmed that she and her partner would be welcoming a child in the near future.
The model gave her fans several updates about her pregnancy and at the end of September announced that her daughter had finally arrived.
Hadid and Malik didn’t reveal their child’s name until January, when the social media personality updated her Instagram bio to read: “ Khai’s Mom. ”

During an interview with Fashion, the fashion industry figure spoke of attempting to impersonate her boyfriend Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds as parents.
She said, “I have friends who are public figures and that’s how they went about it, and I really see their kids thriving in a different way.”
The model went on to talk about how she eventually expected to raise her child her own way and that, although she had received advice from her friends, she would eventually find her own way of parenting.
She explained, “Everyone is figuring it out for themselves … you can take bits and pieces from people, but you’ll always do it a little bit differently.”
