Zayn Malik is proudly on daddy duty, which includes praising daughter Khai’s latest milestones.
Zayn Malik shared a sweet moment he had with his daughter Khai whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, in a new post.
The singer shared an Instagram photo of himself walking outside while spraying a garden area with a water hose and revealed the one who snapped it, in the caption. “Baba farmer, courtesy of Khai. Great photography,” he wrote before adding an emoji face with sunglasses on Saturday, July 1.
Zayn was wearing a white jacket, gray shorts with white socks, and white and red sneakers, in the photo. and looking down with a buzz cut with some facial hair. His hand and leg tattoos were also on full display in the post.
Malik first becomes a parent in September 2020 with his girlfriend Gigi Hadid whom he dated from 2015 to 2021 and gave birth to their daughter.
When you see someone do that, you look at them a bit differently. I probably looked crazy, actually. I was an animal woman,” Gigi Hadid added in February 2021 after the arrival of Khai. She also revealed that she gave birth at home alongside Zayn Malik, her mother Yolanda Hadid, and her sister Bella Hadid.
“It didn’t even click that she was out. I was so exhausted, and I looked up and he was holding her. It was so cute.” she added.
And continued “I know my mom and Zayn Malik 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.’ She was so bright right away. That’s what I wanted for her, a peaceful bringing to the world.”
While Zayn Malik and the Guest in Residence founder “called it quits for good” in October 2021, they continued to peacefully raise Khai.
“You have a long life alongside this person,” Gigi told the Sunday Times in March about co-parenting and continued the “importance of the child’s happiness at the forefront” and that she schedules any work commitments for when Khai is with Malik. She added, “That she can be with both parents makes me very happy.”
He previously gushed over watching Gigi as a mother. “Obviously, she’s a really big help with everything, and she’s doing well,” he said during an iHeartRadio interview on “Valentine in the Morning” in March 2021.
“It’s been really easy for me and Gigi to kind of just ease into it. kind of made it easy for us, she sleeps really well, and she loves her milk. It’s just feeding and changing diapers at the moment.” he added
Malik also found inspiration in parenthood. In several of the tracks, he always crooned about being a present father to Khai.
“Me, I’m feeling grown since I had my daughter/ Now I had to change my goals,” Zayn Malik raps in the music “Believe Me,” which is released in September 2021. “And become a father / I learned this is on my own / This is the life I chose.” The song went viral on TikTok and reached number 23 on the UK Singles Chart.
