Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have finally revealed the name of their little girl, four months after she was born.
The model has updated her Instagram bio to include ‘Khai’s mom’, which fans have concluded is the name of her daughter.
The name is reportedly a tribute to Gigi’s grandmother, Khairiah, which means ‘crowned’ in Arabic. Gigi and Zayn became proud parents at the end of September last year. Zayn took to Twitter to announce the pair’s bundle of joy had arrived.

The supermodel and her singer partner kept their pregnancy under wraps for some time, before confirming the news in an interview with Jimmy Fallon for The Tonight Show in April.
“Obviously, we wished we could have announced it on our own terms but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” Gigi said.
“Especially during this time,” she added, “it’s a nice silver lining to be able to be home and be together and really experience it day by day.”
Gigi’s mum Yolanda Hadid also confirmed the news to Dutch media outlet RTL Boulevard: “I’m excited to become a Oma in September especially after I lost my mum so recently. But this is the beauty of life: One soul leaves us and a new one comes in. We feel very blessed.”
The couple has had an on and off again romance since first getting together in November 2015.
