Gigi Hadid is asking paparazzi to blur her daughter’s face in photos so that she “can live as normal of a childhood as possible.” The 26-year-old supermodel posted an open letter on IG stories, asking for privacy for Khai, her baby with One Direction‘s Zayn Malik.
“As our baby grows up we have to realize that we can’t protect her from everything the way we wanted to and could when she was smaller,” Hadid wrote. “She loves seeing the world! and although she gets a lot of that out near the farm, she also gets to experience other places- a true blessing. On our most recent visits to New York, she has started to want her sun shade lifted up (something she is used to at home) and helps herself to it! She doesn’t understand why she’s covered in the city, or what I’ve wanted to protect her from. I also want her to see the most amazing city in the world + the beautiful and diverse people that walk down the streets of NYC … that is, without the stress of the media circus that comes with parents who are public figures.”
Hadid has blurred all shots of her baby’s face that she herself has shared.
