Recently, Zayn opened up about fatherhood during an interview on iHeartRadio. He said: "I didn't expect to be quite as into it [fatherhood] to be honest with you. I just love hanging out with her [Khai]... It's a really different pace of life, but it's been really easy to adjust and that's the most surprising."

He added: "Honestly, it's amazing. A lot of people that I was speaking to obviously before she was born and stuff were like you know it's a big adjustment and it’s going to be a massive change and stuff, but honestly she's an amazing baby."

Gigi and Zayn welcomed little Khai in September

In February, Gigi shared details about her daughter's birth, revealing that she welcomed her first child at home surrounded by her family and Zayn.

"It didn’t even click that she was out," she told Vogue. "I was so exhausted, and I looked up and he’s holding her. It was so cute."

Gigi admitted that she had planned to give birth at a New York hospital, but due to COVID-19 restrictions there was a limit on who could be in the delivery room, and so the couple decided a home birth was the right choice.
