The 25-year-old was also seen holding her daughter in a stunning Autumn snap, where she donned an elegant collared knit jumper and Khai sported an adorable pumpkin knit hat with matching boots.

Fans rushed to the comments to congratulate the star on the joyous occasion: "Aww the best feeling in the world! Happy Mother's Day! Khai is so lucky to have you as her mama", whilst another referred to motherhood as: "The most magical and intense journey there is".

How cute does Khai's matching outfit look?

Gigi and Zayn never officially revealed their first child's name to the press. The supermodel discreetly revealed the moniker a few months ago by changing her biography on Instagram, and adding "Khai's mom" to it.

Doting mum Gigi welcomed her baby daughter into the world in September with her boyfriend, former One Direction star Zayn. The couple are yet to share a photo of Khai's face - much to their followers' disappointment!
