Gigi Hadid is notoriously private about her life as a new mother and only occasionally takes to Instagram to share photos of her and Zayn Malik's ten-month-old daughter Khai. In an emotional open letter to the paparazzi and her fans, Gigi penned a lengthy heartfelt letter begging for her daughter's privacy as she grows up.

Writing to her 67.7million Instagram followers, Gigi shared: "I write this all to say: to the Paparazzi, press, and beloved fan accounts, you know we have never intentionally shared our daughters face on social media. Our wish is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes of age, and that she can live as normal of a childhood as possible, without worrying about a public image that she has not chosen."

Gigi also thanked the paparazzi for respecting her previous request to keep their distance from her baby, saying: "I would like to send a huge 'Thank You' to those paparazzi who have been so respectful, since I asked them to keep a distance while I walked with the stroller, since my first trip to NYC with Khai. I see you and I appreciate it".
