Gigi Hadid subtly announced baby daughter’s name on Instagram two months ago but fans didn’t notice

Gigi Hadid finally confirmed that she and Zayn Malik picked the name Khai for their daughter last week, four months after giving birth.

But eagle-eyed fans have now pointed out that the model, 25, secretly revealed the tot’s moniker back in November without anyone noticing.

Gigi took to Instagram on November 22 to share a series of pictures of her life as a new mum. She captioned the post: “A whole new kind of busy & tired but she’s da bestie so she got Christmas decorations early.”

In one of the snaps, which showed off their Christmas decorations, Khai’s name can be faintly seen in a plant pot under the Christmas tree.

“You can see the baby’s name in the last pic and we all missed it lol,” one person commented.

“I see Khai’s name in the last pic omgg,” another wrote, while a third added: “Can’t believe Khai’s name was there all along,” alongside a clown face emoji.

Gigi had previously kept the name of her first child private, but added a sweet part to her Instagram profile as she simply wrote “Khai’s mom” in her bio to confirm her little one’s name.

Khai – said to be a name of Egyptian descent – means “the chosen one” and “royalty or nobility”.

Gigi gave birth on September 23 and celebrated four months since her daughter’s arrival as she posted a black and white picture showing her kissing the baby’s cheek.

“My girl, 4 months & The best kid”, the star wrote alongside the snap.

She has not yet shown the baby’s face in her numerous Instagram appearances.

Zayn posted a sweet message after becoming a father last year.

“To try to put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding,” the former 1D star, 28, wrote.

“Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together.”

Gigi also shared the happy news on her Instagram back in September.

Posting a similar picture which showed Zayn’s hand beside their daughter’s, she wrote: “Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love.”
