Gigi Hadid has finally revealed the name of her baby daughter. 

The 25-year-old model and her boyfriend Zayn Malik welcomed their first child back in September and after months of keeping quiet over the baby's moniker, Gigi shared the name in a subtle way on her social media bio. 

"Khai's mom," she wrote, adding a sweet pic of her four-month old via Instagram stories to mark the name reveal. 

The name Khai has Arabic origins and while usually given to boy, it means 'Crowned' or 'Royaly'. 

The name may also be a tribute to Gigi's paternal grandmother whose name is Khairiah, as well as her sister Bella Hadid whose middle name is Khair.

We're sure the couple will be sharing pictures of their baby girl soon.
