Gigi Hadid has celebrated her daughter’s first father’s day with a rare photograph of Zayn Malik.
Zayn and Gigi have been keeping baby Khai out of the spotlight since she was born in September last year, with the latest photo catching her at bedtime.
The shadowy picture showed Zayn, 28, holding Khai in front of a lit-up globe in a dimly lit room, once again hiding her identity but showing just how much the new dad dotes on his little girl.
Eight month old Khai could be seen in hat, bright pink leggings and a bib with white socks resting on the table in front of her as Zayn held her up.

Gigi wrote alongside the adorable snap: “Our Khai is so lucky to have a baba who loves her so much & does anything to see her smile !!
“[Zayn], Happy first Father’s Day .. I’m so grateful for all the lil bits of her that are you. We love you so much.”

Gigi and Zayn have been dating on and off for the past five years, first getting together in 2015.
They split in 2018 but then reconciled by September 2019, and in April 2020 announced they were expecting their first child together.

While they have been keeping their daughter’s face away from the public eye, both have openly spoken about life as new parents.
Both post photos of the little one’s hands and feet or from behind so her identity remains hidden.

Khai is also following in her parents’ fashionista footsteps as Gigi shared snaps of Khai in Versace baby clothes .
"I didn't expect to be quite as into it [fatherhood] to be honest with you,” Zayn said on fatherhood. “I just love hanging out with her [Khai]… It's a really different pace of life, but it's been really easy to adjust and that's the most surprising."

"Honestly, it's amazing,” he continued to US’s iHeartRadio.
“A lot of people that I was speaking to obviously before she was born and stuff were like you know it's a big adjustment and it’s going to be a massive change and stuff, but honestly she's an amazing baby."

Gigi and Zayn had originally planned for a delivery in a New York City hospital but opted to stay at the Hadid family's Pennsylvania ranch because of coronavirus restrictions on the number of people allowed in the delivery suite.
This meant Gigi’s mum Yolanda and sister Bella could be there too.

Though Gigi admitted to Vogue that it would “be a while” before she wanted to go through labour again.
Speaking about her labour, she said: "There was definitely a point where I was like, I wonder what it would be like with an epidural, how it would be different.
"My midwife was like, 'You're doing it. No one can help you. You're past the point of epidural anyway, so you'd be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed.'"
