DUBAI: Part-Palestinian model Gigi Hadid on Tuesday shared an open letter on her Instagram account asking the paparazzi, press and fan accounts to respect her daughter’s privacy and not share her face online.
Hadid’s daughter, Khai, with her partner, singer and former One Direction star Zayn Malik, is around 10-months-old and the famous couple have not shared images of her face with the public.
“As our baby grows up, we have to realize that we can’t protect her from everything the way we wanted to and could when she was smaller,” wrote the 26-year-old catwalk star on her Instagram Stories.
“On our most recent visits to New York, she has started to want her sun shade lifted up. She doesn’t understand why she’s covered in the city, or what I’ve wanted to protect her from,” added Hadid.
“It would mean the world to us, as we take our daughter to see and explore NYC and the world, if you would please… blur her face out of the images, if and when she is caught on camera.”
