Gigi Hadid opens up about her 2-year-old daughter Khai in a preview of a new interview with Sunday today.
“I mean, I think she’s a genius,” the model said in her chat with Willie Geist for Today’s Sunday Sitdown, which is set to air in full air this weekend. “But I think that’s what everyone says about their child. It’s so much fun. The more she talks and understands and remembers, it just gets funnier and funnier. And she’s a blessing.”
She went on to add that her daughter with Zayn is “so mobile, so early in the morning. So mobile – jumping off things. Very brave. Which is great, but you know… We practice doing dangerous things carefully. That’s what I want to go for.”
Gigi and Zayn welcomed their daughter in September 2020. The couple broke off their engagement last year following news that Zayn had a dispute with Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, which the 57-year-old claims turned physical. But things seem cordial between the co-parents, med Gigi wishes Zayn a Happy Father’s Day back in June.
In the new interview, Hadid also dished on how her new clothing brand, Guest in Residence, came together. “I built this team out of my friends in the industry that I’ve worked with for years,” she said. “So it’s really an honor and it’s so nice to look back on the 10 years since I officially started modeling and realize that in between all the pictures there is real experience and life and memories with people that have never been seen in the pictures. I always say, if you look around, you can learn so many things besides modeling in that job. And I think all the people—photographers, creatives, stylists, business people behind the scenes—all those people really got me to where I am today because I’ve tried to watch them and learn from them, even if they didn’t know it.”
