Gigi Hadid and Zayn's baby girl is named Khai!
The model, 25, who has been low-key about sharing details of her four-month-old daughter since the day she was born, officially confirmed the news with fans by revealing her daughter’s name on social media — and in the most clever way, might we add.
The subtle announcement came on Thursday (January 21) when fans noticed something noticeably different about her Instagram bio, which now reads, “Khai’s mom,” referring to her and Zayn’s little bundle of joy.
Shortly after the announcement was made, fans on Twitter did some research into the possible meaning of their daughter’s name.
“Khai in arabic means crowned zayn and gigi seriously created a princess,” one user tweeted.
Another added similarly, “So the name khai means crowned in arabic, and the name malik means king; zayn and gigi named their daughter crowned king.”
Anyone who’s been following Zigi knows the couple has been intentionally secretive about the privacy of their daughter, whose face has since remained carefully concealed in several photos since the day she was born on September 23, 2020.
"Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful," the former One Direction member wrote at the time. "To try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. 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.”
