Khai, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s daughter celebrated her first birthday
Over the weekend, Gigi Hadid’s parents, Mohamed and Yolanda Hadid, as well as her sister Bella, paid tribute to Khai, calling her “the greatest gift our family has ever received”.
Khai has hit the age of one! Over the weekend, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s baby celebrated her first birthday, and their family documented the event on social media. Over the weekend, Gigi’s parents, Mohamed and Yolanda Hadid, as well as her sister Bella, paid tribute to Khai, calling her “the greatest gift our family has ever received”.
Grandpa Mohamed shared a snapshot from his granddaughter’s birthday celebrations, which included a slew of gifts and balloons, some of which spelled out her name. For Khai’s big day, the Hadid patriarch wore some bunny ears. Aunt Bella uploaded a carousel of ordinary images on her Instagram account, as well as one photo from the party with Khai’s bear cake.
Yolanda shared a snap thanking the incredible mamma Gigi Hadid and father Zayn Malik for giving her the greatest gift of their lives. Singer Dua Lipa, who is dating Gigi and Bella’s brother Anwar, was also in attendance, sharing a snapshot with baby Khai on her Instagram Story and writing, “Happy birthday perfect angel Khai.
During their birthday tributes, the model’s friends and family all made sure to hide Khai’s face. Gigi, who gave birth to her first child with Zayn in late September, has been vocal about her wish to keep her daughter’s privacy. In July, she wrote an open letter to the press and fan accounts requesting that any photographs of Khai’s face be blurred.
“You know we have never intentionally shared our daughter’s face on social media,” she wrote. “Our wish is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes of age and that she can live as normal of a childhood as possible, without worrying about a public image that she has not chosen. . . I just want the best for my baby, as all parents do, and I hope this can continue the conversation to protect minors in the media, even if they come from a public family.”
