It’s been four months since Gigi Hadid gave birth to her first child with Zayn Malik in Pennsylvania, USA, where supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid share a farmhouse.
In the fourth week of September 2020, Gigi introduced her baby to the world by posting a photo on Instagram that shows her daughter’s hand: “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
Although both Zayn and Gigi have shared some snaps of their baby girl, (which are mostly just of the little one’s hands and back!) the name still remained a mystery. That is, until Gigi subtly revealed the name of their daughter on Instagram.
Gigi’s eagle-eyed fans noticed the update on her Instagram profile just a few days ago. She simply put, “Khai’s mom,” as her new Instagram bio.
Since the supermodel’s name reveal for her daughter was through IG, she has not shared the backstory for the name yet. However, fans have two main theories behind what inspired her child’s name.
The first theory is that she named her baby “Khai” in honor of her grandmother on her dad’s side, who was named “Khairia Daher Hadid.” Gigi’s dad, Mohamed Hadid, shared a touching memory about his mother a few months ago: “My Mom would have been so proud of @gigihadid today… Gigi loved everything about Tata. Gigi won first place in an art competition of a portrait of her Tata.”
The other theory is that baby Khai was named after her aunt, Bella Hadid, whose middle name is “Khair.” Aww!
Even though Gigi has not yet confirmed these family name connections to the name Khai, we think it’s a sweet name that suits her baby girl.
Looking forward to more pics of Khai and her beautiful parents!
