The model updated her bio yesterday morning to include ‘Khai’s mom,’ which fans picked up instantly.
According to TMZ, Khai is a tribute to Hadid's grandmother Khairiah on her father Mohamed Hadid's side. It also means "crowned" in Arabic.
The pair welcomed their daughter at the end of September last year, with Malik breaking the news on Twitter and Instagram: "Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful🙏🏽❤️" he wrote. "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, and thankful for the life we will have together x"
Hadid posted her own announcement on her Instagram account shortly after, tagging Malik. "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love🥺💕," Hadid wrote.
While Hadid chose to initially keep her pregnancy off of social media, she shared a number of photos from her maternity shoot, alongside a few snaps of her on her family’s farm.
"Obviously I think a lot of people are confused why I'm not sharing more but like, I'm pregnant through a pandemic, like obviously my pregnancy is not the most important thing going on in the world," she said in July. "That's a reason that I felt that it's not really something that I need to share apart from with my family and friends. Obviously a lot of people have lost lives due to coronavirus that was in the beginning of quarantine and still happening. And then we moved obviously into the reemergence of the BLM [Black Lives Matter] movement, and I thought that our presence on social media should be used for that."
"I have been taking a lot of pictures of my bump and sending it to friends and family and it's been very cute and exciting and I'm trying to document it well because I've heard a lot of people say obviously make sure you don't miss it," she continued. "And I will be sharing stuff like that in the future. I just am not rushed to do it, and I feel like right now I just want to experience it."
So far we have only seen snippets of the baby - hair, feet - but hopefully get to see beautiful baby Khai soon!
