DUBAI: Part-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid rarely offers glimpses of her newborn child with former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, but on Sunday, the 25-year-old shared an adorable, albeit subtle, sneak peak of her three-month old daughter on Instagram.
In the snap, the model’s baby girl is seen wearing a leopard-print sweater while she cradles her mother's index finger.
“My girl!” wrote Hadid alongside the sweet image.
Extremely private when it comes to her newborn, Hadid rarely shares images of her daughter whom she welcomed in September.
Though Hadid, who was born in California to a Dutch mother and a Palestinian father, welcomed her first child with longtime partner Zayn Malik back in September, the 25-year-old has yet to share a photo of her baby girl’s face or her name with the public.
In fact, over the holidays, Hadid took part in Instagram’s viral “Show Me a Picture Of” challenge, clarifying at the beginning of the challenge that fans shouldn’t bother asking to see a picture of her daughter.
However, Hadid has opted for quick glimpses and tidbits into her new life as a mom, including a tour of the baby’s nursery via Instagram Stories.
In celebration of Halloween, the model shared the family’s first photo together on social media, and last month, the catwalk star shared a series of intimate Instagram snaps with her 62.4 million followers, including one that showed her cradling her newborn.
“A whole new kind of busy & tired but she’s da bestie so she got Christmas decorations early (sic),” Hadid wrote, also showcasing her festive Christmas decorations ahead of the holiday.
Meanwhile, on Christmas Day, the older sister of Bella Hadid did post two new photos of her newborn, though her face wasn’t visible in either picture.
The new parents have also kept the infant’s name under wraps, but according to E! News, the newborn’s moniker is “unique.”
In December, some fans were convinced that Taylor Swift revealed the couple’s baby’s name in the song “Dorothea” from her ninth album, “Evermore.”
Gigi Hadid’s baby is named Dorothea and you can’t convince me otherwise

“Y’all hear me out. My best friend just cracked something, I guess. ‘August’ is track 8 on ‘Folkore’ and Gigi has posted a picture on Instagram captioning ‘August, waiting for our girl,’” a dedicated fan shared on Twitter.
“The track 8 of evermore is ‘Dorothea.’ SO WHAT IF GIGI’S BABY’S NAME IS DOROTHEA? (sic)” the sleuthing conspiracy theorist added.
Despite fan speculation, unnamed sources told TMZ that the baby’s name is not Dorothea.
