“My girl!” exclaimed Gigi Hadid on Jan. 5 while sharing a picture of her and Zayn Malik’s three-month-old daughter holding her hand. In the photo, the little girl – whose name is still unknown – grasps her mommy’s finger tightly in her little hand. The baby girl’s face is off screen, but one can imagine the smile on the child’s face – and the smile on Gigi’s, as the 25-year-old model bonds with her precious babe. The image melted all her followers’ hearts, who flooded the comments section with heart emojis and messages of love. “Go best friends!” wrote Olivia Perez, for instance.
This new photo of Zayn, 27, and Gigi’s daughter (at least, of her hand) comes less than two weeks after the new parents celebrated the baby’s first Christmas. Gigi, who has done her best to conceal her daughter’s face from the public, posted a photo of Zayn holding their baby to her Instagram Story. In the photo, Zayn cuddles his baby girl, his heavily tattooed hand holding his daughter’s. Zayn’s baby rocked a white onesie and knitted booties (as well as a Gucci bib, a gift from friend Devon Windsor.) Gigi captioned the shot with three emojis – a Christmas tree, a face surrounded by hearts, and one big red heart.
Right before Christmas, Gigi took her daughter outside to experience her first snowfall. When a major snowstorm hit New York City on Dec. 17, Gigi tossed on a long coat, some white boots and grabbed her daughter’s stroller. The baby, presumably all bunded up, was concealed by the stroller’s canopy, but Gigi shared a photo of the snowy adventure as proof of her baby’s “first snow.”
Two days before the winter storm, Gigi and her sister Bella Hadid were spotted pushing the newborn’s stroller through the streets of Manhattan. It was the first time Gigi was seen taking her baby for a stroll since giving birth, and she dressed up for the occasion. The model wore a long black coat with a matching facemask, a stylish pair of boots, and a very chic hat. She also added a pair of John Lennon-esque sunglasses to compliment the outfit.
Speaking of the former Beatle, since welcoming their girl on Sept. 23, Gigi and Zayn have been feeling nothing but “peace and love” with being parents. “They’re both so ‘head over heels’ in love with their little girl,” a source close to the model told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She really is a dream come true for the whole family.” Gigi has since said that becoming a parent has been “the best thing that ever happened to her and Zayn” since it has given them “a common purpose, and they’re totally united.”
