Gigi Hadid has written an open letter to paparazzi, press and fan accounts about her daughter Khai’s privacy as she spends more time in New York City. Gigi explains that as Khai gets older, he likes to see the world and wants the sun to shine on his stroller—meaning people and people can see his face.
“As our baby grows, we have to realize that we can’t protect him from everything we wanted and could have done when he was a kid,” Gigi wrote. “He loves to see the world! and although he got a lot of it near the farm, he was also able to experience other places – a true blessing. On our last visit to New York, he began to want the sun to lift. up (something she used to do at home) and helped herself to it! He doesn’t understand why he’s locked up in the city, or what I want to protect him from. I also wanted him to see the most amazing city in the world + beautiful and diverse people walking the streets of NYC … that is, without the pressure of the media circus that comes with parents who are public figures.”

Gigi went on to explain that she wanted Khai’s face blurred in every photo of her that might be taken, saying, “I know the law turns State into State, and I’ve seen several paparazzi photos of kids in NYC with their faces on. blurred – but, from wondering, I believe that it boils down to the integrity of the photographer, publication or fan sharing the image.”
He added that he and Zayn Malik wanted Khai to choose how his image was shared with the public, and they wanted to provide a childhood as normal as possible.
“I am writing this all to say: to the beloved Paparazzi, press and fan accounts, you know we never intentionally share our daughter’s face on social media. Our hope is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes. age, and that she could live as normal a life as possible from childhood, without worrying about the public image she did not choose. It means the world to us, as we take our daughter to see and explore NYC and the world, if you will PLEASE PLEASE blur her face from the picture, if and when she is caught on camera. I know it’s an extra effort – but as a new mom, I just want the best for my baby, as all parents do… and I hope this can continue the conversation to protect minors in the media, even if they come from families public.”
Gigi concludes the letter by thanking those who have respected Khai’s privacy:
“I wanted to send a big ‘Thank You’ to the paparazzi who have been so respectful, because I asked them to keep their distance while I was walking in the stroller, since my first trip to NYC with Khai. I see you and me. appreciate it. For a child, I can imagine that an up-close or dramatic paparazzi frenzy must be overwhelming and confusing… still as an adult understands and often handles it. I appreciate you taking the time to read this and hope you can understand where I’m coming from. With love, G”
