Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik announce their baby girl’s adorable name

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have revealed their baby girl's name after months of keeping it a secret.

On Gigi's Instagram, she added 'Khai's mom' in her bio, telling fans the cute name.

The subtle change was revealed last night, months after announcing the birth of their daughter at the end of September.

TMZ reports a source claims Khai's name is a tribute to Gigi's grandmother, on her dad, Mohamed's side, who was named Khairiah.

Zayn broke the news of their baby's birth on his own account in September, saying: "Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful.

"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 followed by posting her own announcement shortly after.

She said: "Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love."

The name 'Khai' also means 'crowned' in Arabic, whereas Zayn's last name 'Malik' means 'King'.

The update comes as the 25-year-old celebrated four months since her daughter's arrival, posting a black-and-white snap showing her kissing the baby's cheek.

The supermodel spoke about why she initially chose to keep her pregnancy off of social media in July.

She said there were 'greater things' going on than her expecting.

"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.

"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."

LA-born Hadid and Malik have been dating on-and-off since late 2015.
