While soaking in some fresh air in New York City, the 26-year-old supermodel wore her platinum tresses in a sleek, low bun and a pair of black shades over her blue eyes.

She completed her casual ensemble with beige slides, white ankle-length socks and a delicate gold necklace.

The mother-of-one pushed her baby girl, who will turn two in September, through their neighborhood in a black stroller. 

Khai’s golden blonde hair was styled in an updo and she stayed cozy under a colorful blanket.

Last month, a source told Us Weekly that the Vogue cover girl and the former One Direction singer, 29, reportedly have a ‘loving and caring relationship despite being broken up.’

A source told the publication that the former couple ‘don’t hate each other’ and are ‘doing the best they can’ to make the coparenting of their adorable tot work. 

The insider revealed that the exes – who called it quits in October 2021 – make an effort to ensure that Khai gets enough time with both parents. 

‘They’re not living together, but Zayn visits Gigi and Khai at the farm in Pennsylvania a lot when they’re there. They like to spend time away from the city because it’s more safe, quiet, and exclusive.’ 

The source added that though ‘coparenting comes with certain challenges and ups and downs,’ they want to ensure that they daughter is still ‘very much part’ of Zayn’s life.

The source went on to state that Gigi is a ‘very hands-on mother’ and enjoys bringing Khai to set ‘when she can.’

However, she often chooses to leave the little one home in order to ‘shield her daughter from the public and paparazzi, which is why she rarely posts [on social media] about her.’

The star did make a rare Instagram post about her daughter on Father’s Day, as she gave Zayn a sweet shout out.

The beauty shared a photo of Khai’s legs up against the tattooed legs of the singer-songwriter, right after she posted a photo with her own father Mohamed, 73, and wrote ‘Happy Fathers Day to my sweet baba.’

In reference to that, Gigi wrote, ‘& to Khai’s baba’ followed by a smiley face on the photo of Khai and Zayn. 

Despite Gigi’s kind words for Zayn, the two faced some issues late last year when he plead no contest to four counts of harassment in October 2021, after allegedly pushing Gigi’s mother Yolanda, 58, into a dresser and calling her a ‘f*****g Dutch s**t.’

He also reportedly told he ‘Stay away from [my] f*****g daughter’ and is said to have called Gigi and yelled into the phone: ‘Strap on some f***ing balls and defend your partner against your f***ing mother in my house.’ 

Zayn explained the situation in a social media post at the time, writing: ‘As you all know I am a private person and I very much want to create a safe and private space for my daughter to grow up in.’

‘A place where private family matters aren’t thrown on the world stage for all to poke and pick apart. In an effort to protect that space for her, I agreed to not contest claims arising from an argument I had with a family member of my partner’s who entered our home while my partner was away several weeks ago.’

He denied hitting Yolanda in a statement to TMZ around the time of the incident.

After his no contest plea, the British musician was put on probation for 360 days.

A source told Us Weekly at the time that Zayn and Gigi had decided to split after the legal drama.

Despite their issues, sources later told the publication that they were trying to keep things amicable. Malik and Hadid began an on-again, off-again relationship in 2015.
