Gigi Hadid shares rare photos of her daughter Khai enjoying the beach

On Friday, January 20, Gigi Hadid shared a rare photo of her daughter Khai while on a beautiful beach vacation together.

In the first picture, she has written “Mama Hearts Khai” in the sand and is kneeling next to the words, admiring her work.

In the second black and white photo, Hadid’s back can be seen and she is carrying Khai on her shoulders. In the third image, only Khai’s arm and shadow are visible as her smiling mother follows her up from the waves.

“Celebrated the new year wa lil r&r,” Hadid captioned the carousel on Instagram.

Hadid shares her two-year-old daughter with former partner Zayn Malik, and the whole family respects their rules about not sharing Khai’s face on the internet.
