Gigi and Zayn welcomed their daughter in September

The couple are yet to share a full photo of their daughter, nor have they revealed her name.

According to E!, Gigi is keen to raise her child away from the public eye, which might mean that the couple choose to shield her face from any photos they do share online – a practice many other famous people follow, including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Miranda Kerr and Jennifer Garner.
