The photo was shared when Gigi took to Instagram to wish fashion designer Donatella Versace a happy birthday and it showed the fashion guru bending down to Khai's level. The 19-month-year-old was pictured from behind, wearing a pink collared jacket, leggings and pink trainers. Turns out she's got her mother's stylish prowess.

Gigi shared a picture of her daughter Khai

Back last year, the star made an emotional plea to the paparazzi to not share her daughter's face online. She penned: "I write this all to say: to the Paparazzi, press, and beloved fan accounts, you know we have never intentionally shared our daughter's 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".
