Updated: May 20, 2021
The wait is finally over! Gigi Hadid has finally revealed the name of her and Zayn Malik’s baby. The supermodel made the announcement by changing her Instagram bio “khai’s mom.” This has been one of the most public mysteries ever and according to a source from TMZ, Khai was chosen to honor her late Grandma Khairia from her father Mohamed’s side of the family.
The name Khai is a tribute to her and Khairia, who passed away in 2008. Gigi’s father revealed on Instagram "Her great grandfather was the Prince of Nazareth - King of Galilee in the 18th century Daher Al-Omer The Ruler," he wrote in a tribute post last May.
To also honor her tribute, Mohamed also posted "My Mom ( Allah Yerhamha ) Khairia Daher Hadid would have been so proud of @gigihadid today .. gigi loved everything about Tata. GiGi won first place in an art competition of a portrait of her Tata. This picture was taking 1955 in Beirut. She was a stunner Great Mom a wife a Tata to thirty or so Grandkids. We and I miss her every time I breath. Look down from above. Saying happy early birthday GIGi. You make me proud.”
While we haven’t seen Khai’s face yet, we’re excited to hear more info to come about Khai. A little cuter info about Khaia: she also pays tribute to her godmother, Bella, whose full name is Isabella Khair Hadid.
Until then, welcome to the world, Khai!
