The supermodel said, “During my pregnancy, I had one journal that I called my good journal and one journal that I called my bad journal. They weren’t that literal, but one was more for the memories, for Khai. She further added, “Maybe one day I’ll give her the bad journal just to be real about it. [It has my] anxieties and days where I felt like, ‘Am I good enough to be a mom?’ I didn’t want to feel guilty about feeling those things or writing those things down. I just liked the separation.”
The mother of a nine-month-old daughter shared that journaling was one of her favorite hobbies during her pregnancy. She mentioned that “I also have sketch pads where I’ll watercolor-sketch, and sometimes I end up writing there too. I write on the back of receipts and keep those in a notebook.” She says, “I’m not particular about it, and my journals are everywhere around the house. I just pick up whichever one is closest to me and write.”Gigi Hadid revealed that she has a variety of hobbies. She continues, “I deal with a lot of things through just sitting and thinking and writing.” “People made jokes when COVID hit, like, ‘Oh, Gigi, you’ve been practicing quarantine for years now,’ because when I had a few days off, I would drive to the farm from the city and be with myself in my little cabin, making a resin chair or drying flowers.”
