Model Gigi Hadid recently took to Instagram and posted an earnest message for the paparazzi, press and fan accounts, asking them to respect her baby daughter’s privacy by blurring her face from all public images.
Hadid and partner Zayn Malik have actively avoided showing baby Khai’s face on social media and in public spaces since her birth in 2020. Although both parents have not shared pictures of Khai, Malik has shared a few details about what their daughter is like and his own adjustment to fatherhood after her birth.
In Hadid’s recent message, the model said that “[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”.
“She loves seeing the world!” she wrote. “On our most recent trip to New York, she has started to want her sun shade lifted up (something she is used to at home) and helps herself to it! She doesn’t understand why she’s covered in the city or what I’ve wanted to protect her from.”
