Gigi Hadid subtly teased her baby girl's name two months ago and no one noticed

After four months of keeping their daughter’s name a secret, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik revealed over the weekend their baby girl is called Khai.

The supermodel subtly updated her Instagram bio to reveal the moniker adding the title “Khai’s mom” to her profile.

However, it seems Hadid actually teased baby Khai’s name two months ago – and no one noticed! (Although we admit it would have been hard to spot…).

Eagle-eyed Hadid fans spotted in an old Instagram post that the new mum shared of her Christmas decorations, that one of the photos Khai’s name can be found.

In the last photo, the newborn’s name can be seen ever so faintly in a pot under the Christmas tree.

“Last pic see if you can find Khai’s name,” one fan said.

The meaning of baby Khai’s name

Not only is Khai a beautiful name, but there’s also a truly special meaning behind the moniker.

Khai means “crowned”, “the chosen one” or “strong” in some Arabic terms. The name was also chosen as it pays tribute to her late grandmother, Khairia, on her father Mohamed Hadid’s side of the family, according to TMZ.

Hadid’s father has previously claimed his late mother descended from royalty. “Her great grandfather was the Prince of Nazareth – King of Galilee in the 18th century Daher Al-Omer The Ruler,” he previously said.

Welcoming their new baby girl

Hadid and Malik announced the birth of their first-born via social media back in September.

The new mum took to Instagram to announce the news shortly sharing a sweet photo of her daughter’s hand.

“Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world,” she captioned the photo. “So in love.”

While the new mum has now revealed her baby girl’s name to the world, she’s still keeping her face hidden from the public view to protect her privacy, something which she has done throughout her pregnancy.
