Gigi Hadid recently shared a rare photo of her 17-month-old daughter Khai with her followers so they could have a glimpse into her daily life.
She included a jumble of photos ranging from a mirror selfie of herself wearing an adorable winter outfit to her most recent meals to a pair of cute green sneakers. Despite being smack dab in the middle of the carousel, the picture that drew the most attention was the adorable picture of Khai.
In the photo, Khai stood with her back to the camera and showed off an adorably tiny denim jacket that read “Khai” in rhinestones.
One user exclaimed in the comments section, “khais little outfit !!!!!!!!!!” while another added, “Stopppp not Khai’s baggy jean silhouette. It’s givinggggg!” And fans have every right to be excited. A photo of baby Khai is an extremely rare treat.

Gigi Hadid had Khai with her ex-boyfriend Zayn Malik. The two first became romantically involved in 2015, and they dated on and off for the next few years. Gigi announced her pregnancy in 2020 and gave birth to Khai in September. They weren’t a happy family for long, though.
While Gigi was away the following year, Zayn got into an argument with her mother, Yolanda Hadid. They were arguing about Khai. Yolanda wanted to be more involved in Khai’s care, which irritated Zayn.
The ex-One Direction member allegedly became enraged and struck Yolanda. He has since denied hitting her and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
A source said Gigi has no plans of keeping Khai away from her father and wants him to remain a part of her life. “Gigi knows that Zayn is a good father to Khai, and she would never strip him of his rights as a father,” the source said while adding that “Gigi has an incredibly close bond with her own father, and could never imagine taking that away from her daughter.”
