The good-looking couple, who has been dating for a few years, welcomed their first baby, Khai, in September 2020. Malik took to Twitter to announce the news on September 23, 2020.
Posting a monochrome picture of his daughter's hand holding his finger, he wrote, "Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful. To try [to] put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together.”
Hadid and her boyfriend are pretty private about their personal life. They are yet to reveal Khai's face to the public. The couple kept her name a secret for four months. On January 21, Hadid updated her Instagram bio to "Khai's mom."
