US supermodel, Gigi Hadid finally revealed the name of her four-month daughter Khai. She welcomed with her beau Zayn Malik in September.
The baby momma took to her social media platform and on 21st January and revealed the unique name the parents had chosen for their first-born. The supermodel also updated her Instagram bio.
Gigi’s Instagram bio reads: “Khai’s mom”.
A source close to the supermodel said, “It’s not a huge surprise that Gigi decided to name her daughter ‘Khai’ because she chose that name in honor of her grandmother, Khairiah, who is the mother of her dad, Mohamed”.
The insider added, “Bella Hadid‘s middle name is Khair so it’s sort of become a family tradition and a way to tribute their loved one. Also knowing that her grandmother came from royalty, it seemed fitting since Zayn’s last name means ‘king’.”
“January 21st also held significance as to why it was such an important day to reveal Khai’s name. It’s considered a lucky day because it’s a palindrome when the calendar numbers ‘12121’ are written out so it seemed like the perfect time for them to share her name with the world”, the source further added.
The former One Direction hit-maker was the first to disclose the news on September 23, when he shared a black and white image of the newborn clutching onto his finger. “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful…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,” he gushed.
