July 14: Gigi Hadid discusses parenting with Zayn Malik, as mother Yolanda shares photo of Khai

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar US, the model has opened up about how she and Malik have quality family time with Khai, explaining that they often go on mini hikes in the woodlands, listen to Bollywood and sing Arabic nursery rhymes.

'She loves the birds, the animals,' Hadid told the magazine, adding that her One Direction beau noticed their daughter watching the jellyfish on their television screensaver so 'had the idea' to visit the aquarium.

Hadid also explained how she journalled during her pregnancy, dividing her thoughts and emotions into two separate positive and negative experiences - like anxieties, doubts and insecurities - books: 'I had one journal that I called my good journal and one journal that I called my bad journal. They weren’t that literal, but one was more for the memories, for Khai. Maybe one day I’ll give her the bad journal just to be real about it.'

On the same day the interview was released, Hadid's mother Yolanda shared a sweet photo of her morning spent with her granddaughter Khai meditating:

July 5: Gigi Hadid issues statement regarding daughter Khai’s privacy

The model has issued a heart-breaking please to the paparazzi, press and fan accounts who either knowingly or unknowingly share photos of their daughter’s face without blurring her identity.

‘As our baby grows up we have to realise that we can’t protect her from everything the way we wanted to and could when she was smaller,’ Hadid began her message, shared on her Instagram Stories.

The 26-year-old went on to detail how her daughter loves to see the world and often wants her sun shade lifted up on her pram in New York City. ‘She doesn’t understand why she’s covered in the city, or what I’ve wanted to protect her from. I also want her to see the most amazing city in the world and the beautiful and diverse people that walk down the streets of NYC… that is, without the stress of the media circus that comes with parents who are public figures,' she added.

Acknowledging that privacy laws for children vary between US states, Hadid continued to ask the media and fans to blue their daughter’s face out of images when she’s caught on camera. ‘I know it’s an extra effort – but as a new mum, I just want the best for my baby, as all parents do… and I hope this can continue the conversation to protect minors in the media, even if they come from a public family.’

Hadid concluded her post to thank the paparazzi who have been ‘so respectful’ since she asked them to keep a distance while out with Khai in her pram. ‘I see you and I appreciate it,’ she noted.

June 15: Gigi Hadid speaks about parenting Khai with Zayn Malik

Hadid has spoken openly about how she and Malik are raising their daughter in a multi-ethnic household.

‘We [Zayn and me] think about it and talk about it a lot as partners and it’s something that’s really important to us, but it’s also something that we first experienced ourselves,’ she told i-D.

‘Because both of our parents are their own heritage. We are that first generation of those mixed races, and then that comes with that first generational experience of being like, “Oh damn, I’m the bridge!”. That’s not something that my parents experienced or that they can really help me through. It’s something I’ve always thought about my whole life.’

She continued, noting that in certain situations she feels – or is made to feel ‘too white’ to stand up for part of her Arab heritage.

‘You go through life trying to figure out where you fit in racially. Is what I am, or what I have, enough to do what I feel is right? But then, also, is that taking advantage of the privilege of having the whiteness within me, right? Am I allowed to speak for this side of me, or is that speaking on something that I don’t experience enough to know? Do you know what I’m saying?

‘I think that Khai will grow up feeling out the way that she can or wants to be a bridge for her different ethnicities,’ Hadid said. ‘But I think that it will be nice to be able to have those conversations, and see where she comes from [with] it, without us putting that onto her. What comes from her is what I’m most excited about, and being able to add to that or answer her questions, you know?’

In the interview Hadid also opened up about how she navigated the initial weeks of her pregnancy last year.

'Super strange,' she said of finding out she was pregnant. 'It obviously felt weird during fashion month when I secretly felt so sick at work but you can’t take a sick day during fashion week!

'I just had to pretend it wasn’t happening. Or, you know, we had a birthday party and someone would offer me a drink, and I’m like, "Oh, I’m not drinking this month" or whatever. And as everyone started to get tipsy, I would sneak out.'

May 21: Gigi Hadid twins with Khai in matching shirts

On May 20, the model shared a 'Taurus szn photo dump' featuring photos of her working, celebrating her birthday, drinking cocktails with and kissing her partner Zayn Malik and adorably twinning with her eight month old daughter Khai.

March 29: Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik rumoured to be wed

The hashtag #ZaynIsMarried began trending on Monday, March 29 after singer Ingrid Michaelson claimed that Hadid and Malik were married.

The longtime collaborator and musician made the comments about the couple's current relationship status during her live stream on Patreon on Monday night.

While discussing her new song 'To Begin Again' - which features Malik - the musician revealed that they never met while working on the song and music video and noted that Malik is a 'private' person who is 'now married'.

'We’ve never met, I’ve never spoken to him,' Michaelson said, adding: 'Zayn doesn’t do stuff he doesn’t wanna do, and the fact that he did this song is very flattering. He’s such a private person and now he’s married and has a child so, he does the things he wants to do.'

Unsurprisingly, the claim quickly lead to speculation across Twitter about the marital status of the couple.

The singer later took to Twitter to clarify that 'she made a mistake', presumably referring to Malik's marital status, and apologised for the confusion.

'I MADE A MISTAKE IM SORRY BUT ALSO I LOVE THAT LEOPARD PRINT COFFIN BLANKET. [sic]' she tweeted on a Giph shared by a Twitter user.

The news has not been confirmed by the couple.

Keeping safe, the couple both wore face masks, with Hadid at one point stopping to affectionately tend to her boyfriend's mask by pulling it up while he pushed the pram.

March 18: Zayn Malik speaks about amazing Baby Khai and 'Wicked Mum' Gigi Hadid

The 28-year-old singer gushed over girlfriend Hadid and their baby daughter in an interview iHeartRadio, for their Valentine in the Morning show yesterday. In the clip, Malik speaks about what life has been like for himself and the 25-year-old model since welcoming their first child in September 2020.

'Honestly, it's amazing,' said the former One Director member.

'A lot of people that I was speaking to, obviously, before she was born and stuff we're like, "It's a big adjustment, and it's going to be a massive change and stuff." But honestly, she's an amazing baby. It's been really easy for me and Gigi to kind of just ease into it. She kind of made it easy for us, she sleeps really well, she loves her milk. It's just feeding and changing diapers at the moment. It's wicked. I'm enjoying it, for sure.'

The crooner who recently released his third album Nobody Is Listening since splitting from the boyband in 2015, says that young Khai is also a shaping into a budding musician herself. 'It's mainly melodies' said Malik in response to questions about whether he sings to the tot, 'sometimes she kind of makes sounds back to me, which is amazing, I just like singing to her.'

When asked about what mum Gigi is like now the new arrival is here, the singer said this -'She's good. She's a wicked mum. Obviously, she's really a big help with everything, and she's doing well.'

March 4: Gigi Hadid shares photo of 'big girl' daughter

Almost six months after Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik welcomed their first child together, the model has shared a photo of daughter Khai, and as is often the case with babies, we can't believe how big she's grown - neither can Gigi!

'My big girl,' Hadid captioned the post along with a teary-eyed emoji.

February 21: Gigi Hadid shares never-before-seen bikini pregnancy photo

Hadid has shared some never-before-seen photos, including one of herself dressed in a bikini taken weeks before her due date.

During an Instagram Q&A in February, the model posted a series of photo replies to her Instagram Stories to give her fans a glimpse into her life on different dates in 2020.

The photos included adorable photos of her growing pregnancy bump, her daughter's nursery and walks with her boyfriend and child.

In one photo, taken in August last year weeks before she gave birth, the model showcases her baby bump during her final trimester while wearing a glittery gold bikini and pink hair scrunchie. The then mother-to-be has her eyes closed in the snap and looks into the sun, which helps to further light up her glowing presence.

In a photo dated August 6, the 25-year-old reveals the paint colours she was choosing between for the daughter's nursery, ahead of the tot's arrival.

In another photo taken three days later, the model stands in what appears to be Khai's orange-coloured nursery wearing a casual, blue and white tie dye T-shirt, and another snap from December sees Malik walking their daughter in a pram.

Since giving birth to her daughter, Hadid has refrained from sharing many photos of her family on social media, in addition to keeping her daughter's facial appearance a mystery, so this was an adorable treat for fans.

January 26: Zayn Malik reveals tattoo in honour of daughter Khai

Malik has seemingly added some super sweet ink to his tattoo collection in honour of his four-month-old daughter Khai, if fan speculation is anything to go by.

After months of questions on the name of Malik's first child, who he shares with Hadid, the model subtly updated her Instagram bio to 'Khai's mum' on January 21, thus revealing the tot's name to the world.

Now that Khai's name is no longer shrouded in secrecy fans have been quick to look for clues and explanations as to why the pair chose the name.

One fan theory favours the idea that the name is a nod to the couple's Arabic roots while others believes it pays tribute to Hadid's paternal grandma Khairiah or her sister Bella's middle name Khair.

Eagle eye fans have even noticed that Malik is sporting a new Arabic script tattoo which seemingly appears in red on his wrist.

'Zayn has his baby girl’s name "khai" tattooed on his in arabic!' (sic), suggested one fan on Twitter alongside a screenshot from one of the singer's Instagram Live videos on January 17.

Buzzfeed has looked into the aforementioned fan's suggestion and notes that the tattoo does appear to make a nod to the couple's daughter's name.

January 21: Gigi Hadid shares photo with daughter four months since her birth

Hadid is celebrating her daughter today four months after her birth.

On Thursday, the model shared a selfie on Instagram Stories with her daughter. In the snap, the 25-year-old wears a white linen shirt and has her hair tied up into a messy bun. Her daughter meanwhile is dressed in a polka dot outfit with a white bib. As usual, Hadid decided not to share her tot’s face, in keeping with her and Malik’s apparent decision to protect her privacy.

‘My girl. 4 months & THE BEST KID [sic],’ the proud mum captioned the shot of her kissing her baby’s cheek.

In another post, Hadid shared a message she seemingly sent to an unknown contact which reads: ‘Hey. I’m obsessed with our kid.’ It’s to be presumed Hadid sent this adorable text to her beau, Malik.

January 19: Zayn Malik promotes new album with solo Instagram Live listening party

Zayn Malik is opting to go in a rather unorthodox direction for the promotion of his newest album Nobody Is Listening.

On January 18, the singer streamed an Instagram Live of himself enjoying pizza, beer and blasting music. In the clip the singer also appears to be smoking while simultaneously listening to tunes from his record. While the singer's video isn't saved as an IGTV on his Instagram account, several fans recorded the clip and shared it with their followers.

The singer spoke to his fans during the video, which took place at around 11am in the UK and 6am in New York, according to the Daily Mail. It's unclear whether the singer and Hadid's daughter, who the couple welcomed last September, was in the same location as Malik at the same time of the video.

Malik used his time in front of the camera to discuss his favourite songs and revealed that he had spent the day recording. 'I've recorded a sick song today. It might seem a bit weird. I just sat at a computer. I looped four bars. But that's all I can say. It's sick, right?' he noted.

The video stream comes just a few days after Hadid took to Instagram to thank her co-partner in 'Team No Sleep', writing on Instagram to celebrate the Brit's birthday: 'Happiest birthday to our Zaddy baba. So special.' in honour of the singer's birthday.

January 18: Gigi Hadid receives delivery of favourite British snack from Zayn's mum

Despite it being Zayn's birthday over the past week, Gigi has received a gift too.

On Sunday, the model shared a picture of Cadbury's Dairy Milk's Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy flavour to her Instagram Stories. A surprising snack for the New York dweller to adore, one might think, until we saw that the delivery had come courtesy of her Bradford-born boyfriend's mother.

'She knows @mammamalik my fave, thank u,' Hadid captioned the sweet image.

Controversially, Hadid also recommended putting the Dairy Milk bar in the freezer before eating. Very interesting, indeed.

Hadid has previously hinted of her close relationship with Zayn's mother and their shared passion of cooking with the model previously sharing photos and videos of herself attempting Zayn's mother's recipes.

January 13: Gigi Hadid wishes Zayn Malik a happy birthday

To mark Zayn Malik's birthday - the first for him as a new father - Hadid posted a loving tribute to her partner, thanking him for 'making me a mama to the best girl ever'.

Hadid shared a picture of the new parents, affectionately calling themselves 'Team No Sleep', writing: 'Happiest birthday to our Zaddy baba. So special.' She also shared an illustration of Malik and their baby daughter.

She continued, noting that she felt 'overwhelmed' with 'how many beautiful things this little one has already been spoiled with by people I love', referring to her baby.

Hadid noted that while she plans to send 'thank you' cards to her generous loved ones, she points out that if she hasn't posted about her gratitude online it's simply because she is a 'new mum trying to get it all sorted' while her tot naps.

The proud mum also shared a photograph of a gold bracelet she received from her friends which features a diamond and sapphire birthstone to represent her April birthday and her daughter's Virgo star sign, respectively.

'For me n my Virgo girl, [sic]' she captioned the adorable picture.

Monday October 5: Gigi Hadid talks soulmates and babies

The model has opened up about soulmates in a newly-released feature clip titled 'Big Questions on a Tiny Horse' for designer Alexander Wang.

Days after welcoming her first child with her boyfriend Zayn Malik, the 25-year-old said of finding a special someone in life: ‘I've heard, like, star clusters or, like, soul clusters that throughout life you find people that you realise are meant to be - meant to carry you through.'

The new mother added that she was feeling 'happy' and 'a little anxious' when she was filming the segment and believes that her purpose in life is ‘to grow creatively and learn everything that brings me joy, which I think is everyone's purpose’.

On the perception of reality, Gigi said she wasn’t sure how to define what is real or a construct.

‘Who knows? It’s like why babies love Peekaboo - they literally think when you cover your face you disappear - it’s genius,’ she noted.

It's presumed the video was filmed prior to Hadid becoming a mother.
