Gigi Hadid finally revealed the name of her baby girl four months after giving birth: Khai. She took to Instagram on January 21 to reveal the unique name she and Zayn Malik decided on for their first born child.
A source close to the supermodel spoke about why Gigi Hadid chose the name, and the specific date she revealed the happy news. Apparently, it’s not a huge surprise that Gigi Hadid decided to name her daughter ‘Khai.’
The source explained the reason why she chose that name, and it was in honor of her grandmother, Khairiah, who is the mother of her dad, Mohamed. The insider added that Bella Hadid‘s middle name is Khair so it’s sort of become a family tradition and a way to tribute their loved one.
Also knowing that her grandmother came from royalty, it seemed fitting since Zayn Malik’s last name means ‘king’. The source also explained why the pair waited four months to share the name with their fans.
January 21st also held significance as to why it was such an important day to reveal Khai’s name. It’s considered a lucky day because it’s a palindrome when the calendar numbers ‘12121’ are written out so it seemed like the perfect time for them to share her name with the world.
