As fans know, the couple announced the birth of their first daughter together on September 23, 2020, when the One Direction crooner shocked social media followers with a rare Instagram photo that showed his baby girl gripping his hand. “Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful,” he wrote. After Zayn’s post, the Victoria’s Secret model uploaded a similar photo to her own feed and told followers that the newborn “already changed our world.”
Then, on January 21, 2021, she shocked the world by revealing the baby girl’s name, Khai, in her Instagram bio! But as it turned out, Gigi actually revealed the name months ago. When sharing a photo of her holiday decorations in November 2020, the name Khai can be spotted under their Christmas tree!
Gigi first confirmed that a baby was on the way on April 30, 2020, after rumors started circulating that she was expecting.
“Obviously, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” the 25-year-old said during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Months after welcoming their daughter to the world, Gigi gave fans a tour of her daughter’s nursery via Instagram Stories. On December 7, 2020, the model shared photos of the expertly decorated orange room.
“So many friends send their favorite books,” she captioned one snap, showing off her daughter’s bookshelf. Another pic showed the baby’s crib, while a third photo showcased all the toys and stuffed animals on display.
Gigi also shared two throwback photos of her pregnancy. In the first, she was wearing an all-black ensemble and revealed that it was taken the night before she “went into labor.” The other, which was taken “about a week before” the baby arrived, the new mom said, “Decorating [and] spending time in her nursery really helped me feel prepared when I would get too in my head.”
Since the baby was born, Gigi, Zayn and the entire Hadid family have given their millions of social media followers a look into the blonde beauty’s pregnancy and what life has been like with a newborn.
