Gigi Hadid has finally shared her daughter’s name with the world.
Rather than opting for a major Instagram post or over-the-top reveal, the supermodel announced the name of her baby girl in a sweet and subtle fashion. Hadid instead wrote her child’s name in her Instagram bio which now reads directly under her name, “Khai’s mom.” The name reportedly has Arabic origins and translates to “chosen one, royalty or nobility.”
Hadid welcomed her first born, who she shares with her longtime boyfriend, musician Zayn Malik, back in September. Since then, the model has shared sneak peeks into her new life as a mom with fans, but had yet to reveal a full photo of her daughter’s face and up until now, her name as well.
Just yesterday Hadid shared another sweet snap with her little girl, posting a black and white mirror selfie to her Instagram stories where she sweetly gave baby Khai a kiss on the cheek. In recent weeks the mother-daughter duo have also been spotted heading out on shopping trips around New York City, including Khai’s first NYC snow day back in December.
Last week, Hadid also revealed to fans that she found out she was pregnant while backstage at a Tom Ford runway show during New York Fashion Week.
“I found out the day before the Tom Ford show … I was so nauseous backstage,” Hadid tweeted in response to a fan. “But I learned I could kinda control it if I continuously ate, so my mom would pack me snacks before each show … bless.”
