The name of Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik‘s daughter has finally been revealed!
After months of teasing their fans with adorable photos of their baby girl, Zayn and Gigi finally revealed their baby girl’s name. Although not officially, but fans took the hints dropped. Gigi changed her Instagram bio and fans spotted an Arabic tattoo on Zayn’s wrist.
According to Gigi’s bio, the baby girl has been named Khai!
“Khai’s mom,” reads Gigi’s new social media bio.
According to reports, Khai‘s name could be in honor of her paternal grandmother, whose name is Khairiah.
Khai’s name reveal comes on her four-month birthday, after Gigi and Zayn welcomed her back on September 21. To mark the special day, Gigi shared a cute photo on her Instagram Story kissing Khai on the cheek. “my girl. 4 months & THE BEST KID,” she wrote along with the photo.
The supermodel shared the news four months after announcing their daughter’s arrival.
Zayn Malik’s heartfelt tweet on 23rd September read, “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful. To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task.” He went on to add, “The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x.”
The 27-year-old also shared the first photo of his daughter’s hand in the social media post. Hours later, Hadid posted another glimpse of the couple’s daughter.
“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world,” Gigi wrote. “So in love.”
In the months since, Gigi has kept fans up to date on her motherhood experience, all while sticking to their commitment to privacy. The family of three also considers New York City a home base, and over the holiday season Khai got to experience what Gigi described as her “first snow.”
Khai’s reveal does debunk a theory purported by Taylor Swift fans following the December release of her ninth studio album, “evermore.”
The song “Dorothea” was thought to have announced Hadid’s baby’s name, especially considering that on “folklore,” Swift’s song “betty” revealed the name of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’ third child.
Hadid and Malik, who first sparked romance rumors in 2015, reunited in late 2019 after breaking up earlier in the year. In April 2020, reports surfaced that the couple was expecting their first child together, which Hadid later confirmed to Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.”
“Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she shared. “Especially during this time, it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.”
Gigi and Zayn have been teasing fans with photos of the little one but chosen not to share photos of her face.
A few days earlier, Gigi revealed the exact date that she found out she was pregnant. Sharing a photo from the Jacquemus runway, she wrote, “A year ago, today @jacquemus! My baby girl was in there.”
