Gigi Hadid Revealed Her Matching Tattoo With Zayn Malik in Honor of Their Daughter, Khai
Gigi Hadid just revealed a new tattoo—and it looks like it matches her boyfriend Zayn Malik’s own ink.
On February 4, the new mom revealed her “post-pregnancy skin routine” in a video for Vogue in honor of her recent cover. Around the 4:30 minute mark, as Hadid is blending her foundation into her hairline, a brown tattoo can be seen on her bicep.
The tattoo closely resembles a similar one on Malik’s wrist. According to People, the tattoo is of their daughter Khai’s name in Arabic.
Although baby Khai was born in September, the 25-year-old model held out on revealing her daughter’s name until January when she changed her Instagram bio to read “Khai’s mom.”
The couple has yet to reveal photos of baby Khai’s face, but Gigi Hadid did open up to Vogue about her experience with natural childbirth. “There definitely was a point where I was like, ‘I wonder what it would be like with an epidural, how it would be different,’” she said in the recent interview. “My midwife looked at me and was like, ‘You’re doing it. No one can help you. You’re past the point of the epidural anyway, so you’d be pushing exactly the same way in a hospital bed.’”
While Hadid proudly described herself as an “animal woman” during the 14-hour labor, she said Malik felt “helpless” watching her in so much pain, likening his emotions to that of a male lion pacing outside of a cave while a lioness gives birth.
“Z was like, ‘That’s how I felt! You feel so helpless to see the person you love in pain,’” Hadid recalled. “I know my mom and Zayn and Bella were proud of me, but at certain points, I saw each of them in terror. Afterward, Z and I looked at each other and were like, We can have some time before we do that again.”
