Before the couple revealed it, viewers may have guessed the name of Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid’s baby girl.
The 25-year-old supermodel, secretly added “Khai’s mom” to her Instagram bio on Thursday, unveiling for the first time the moniker of her four-month-old daughter.
After the big announcement, many fans of the 28-year-old former One Direction singer found that during his Instagram Live days, Malik showed off a new tattoo of Khai’s name written in Arabic which certainly was like a secret. The name was written with red ink on the star’s wrist.

The name is assumed to be a reference to the paternal grandmother of the model, whose name is Khairiah. Also, reports say that the name also references a tribute to Bella Hadid’s niece, whose middle name is Khair.
By getting her eyes inked on the center of his chest, Malik is wrapped head to toe in tattoos, and even paid tribute to Hadid as well.
In recent months, the pair have gushed about how much they love their daughter, with Hadid showing off her trendy nursery and designer duds as well as thanking Malik for calling her a “mama” and remembering a grueling Fashion Week when she was secretly pregnant.
In September, Malik announced Khai’s birth, saying, ‘The love I feel for this tiny person is beyond my comprehension. Grateful for loving her, proud to call her mine, and grateful for the life we are going to share together.
