Gigi Hadid only revealed her baby girl’s name to the world just last week, but grandfather Mohamed Hadid appears to have now unveiled little Khai’s nickname.

Reposting a photo of his supermodel daughter, Mohamed referenced the fact Gigi was wearing his 50-year-old coat, adding it would eventually be passed down to “baby K” – a very cute nickname for his granddaughter.

“Your Babba’s 50 years Old [sic] coat passed on to you and Inshallah to baby K next … #babbasCoat,” he said.

The special meaning and links behind baby Khai’s name

It seems the baby Khai’s name a few special meanings and links behind it, including a link to her supermodel auntie, Bella Hadid.

The 24-year-old’s full name is ‘Isabella Khair Hadid’, meaning her middle name is very similar to her niece’s.

Both Khai and Khair appear to link back to their Palestinian heritage as Mohamed Hadid’s mother was called Khairiah.

The property tycoon 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.

Regardless, it’s a lovely link for auntie and niece to share.

The name Khai also has a special meaning behind it in Arabic – in some terms it means “crowned”, “the chosen one” or “strong”.

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.
