Every day I get with you is a blessing that I cherish beyond words. 3 already!! Where has that time gone? my beautiful little girl, I couldn’t live without you, thank you for all the love you bring to my life.” captioned Malik.
In the collage, it’s possible to see Khai’s birthday cake, themed Frozen. Zayn also held her as she blew out the candles. Louis Tomlinson, Malik’s former bandmate from One Direction, wrote a comment under the post, “Happy birthday Khai!!”.
On Wednesday (20) Gigi Hadid, Khai’s mother, had already posted her own tribute to the little girl. “Have been celebrating our THREE YR OLD this week & just so honored to get to be her mama, to get to see life through her !!!! Happy Birthday to my sweetest, smartest, spunkiest bestie !!!!!!!! DREAM KID / love of my life,” wrote Hadid, alongside a carousel of photos.
Malik and Hadid began dating in 2015, and split in October 2021. The former couple welcomed Khai in September 2020. They decided to not reveal her face, and in June 2021 Hadid released a statement on her Instagram account, asking for paparazzi, press and fan accounts to not post photos showing Khai’s face.
