Gigi Hadid shares a rare snap of ex Zayn Malik and their daughter Khai following the messy split

Supermodel Gigi Hadid put aside her messy split with baby daddy Zayn Malik to wish him a Happy Father’s Day.

Gigi, 27, shares her 21-month-old daughter Khai with her ex-boyfriend, former One Direction boy band member Zayn, 29.

She first posted a sweet tribute on her Instagram Stories to her own father, 73-year-old real estate developer Mohamed Hadid, with a black-and-white snap of her father kissing her on the cheek.

Captioning the snap, she wrote: “Happy Father’s Day to my sweet Baba. I love you!”

Next, she posted a sweet, rare snap of a heavily tattooed Zayn playing with his daughter, whose faces weren’t showing, with some coloring books spread between them.

She captioned the photo, “& to Khais Baba !!!! :)”.

“Baba” is a term for “father” in Arabic, and Gigi’s father is Palestinian-Jordanian.

Zayn and Gigi have shared a tumultuous on-off relationship since 2015, but it seemed all the drama was behind them when Gigi welcomed their daughter in September 2020.

Zayn made headlines in October 2021 after he allegedly got into an altercation with Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, 58, over a dispute over Khai while Gigi was away.

The singer reportedly called Yolanda “f***ing Dutch s**t” and told her, “Stay away from [my] damn daughter.”

First, Zayn took to Twitter to post a statement denying the allegations.

He wrote: “As you all know, I am a private individual and I am passionate about creating a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in.

“A place where private family matters aren’t thrown onto the world stage for all to pick apart.”

“To protect this space for you, I have agreed not to contest any claims arising out of an argument I had with a family member of my partner who entered our home while my partner was away a few weeks ago.

“This was and should still be a private matter, but at the moment there seems to be a division and despite my efforts to put us back into a peaceful family environment that will allow me to raise my daughter in a way she deserves, this was “leaked” to the press.

“However, I hope the harsh words heal everyone involved, and more importantly, I remain vigilant to protect Khai and give her the privacy she deserves.”

In a second statement to TMZ, Zayn further denied the claims and said he “hopes Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations.”

He said: “I staunchly refuse to slap Yolanda Hadid and for the sake of my daughter, I decline to give further details and I hope that Yolanda will reconsider her false allegations and move on to resolving these family issues privately.” .”

Zayn later pleaded guilty to molestation following the alleged altercation with Yolanda.

Gigi and Zayn are said to have then split, with a representative for Gigi saying: “Gigi is solely focused on what is best for Khai. She requests privacy during this time.”
