Supermodel Gigi Hadid has opened up about her life-after-Khai and how she and boyfriend Zayn Malik are handling things in an interview with Harper's Bazaar.

The model, who gave birth to Khai last September, is immensely private about her baby despite having more than 67 million followers on Instagram. She has numerous model of the year awards, magazine covers, brand collaborations, campaigns and fashion shows under her belt. But nowadays, she, Zayn and Khai are spending some quality time together.

According to the outlet, Gigi and Zayn are hiking in the woods these days, and even listening to Bollywood music for Khai. They are also singing an Arabic nursery rhyme she enjoys. “She loves the birds, the animals,” Hadid said. “It’s nice to be outside after a long winter.”

The duo also took Khai to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History in New York where she was mesmerised by the dinosaur displays. According to Gigi, Zayn also spotted her fondness for their television screen saver, which is a jellyfish.

“Zayn had the idea, he’s like, ‘We should take her to the aquarium.’ Those umbrella-shaped marine animals were Khai’s favourite in real life as well," revealed Gigi, as she went on to hope one day Khai would ride horses like she does.

Gigi and her sister Bella Hadid made quite a few headlines recently after voicing their support for Palestine. During her conversation, Gigi also highlighted how, while she is the more practical and even-tempered sister at family dinners, Bella is the more emotional and compassionate, which can be dubbed as the reason behind her unimpeded support for a humanitarian cause.

As for where that leaves Zayn, Gigi assured that if the two sisters end up arguing, Zayn remains on their mother’s side. "At first he was like, ‘How do I get a word in edgewise?’ But now he is very comfortable. He speaks his mind. When he’s in the middle of a family thing and everyone’s like, ‘Zayn, whose side are you on?’ He’s usually on my mom's side. So he's charming and smart in that sense,” she asserted.
