Before Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik (opens in new tab) welcomed their daughter, Khai (opens in new tab), the model turned to a famous friend for some advice about parenting as a person in the public eye.
In a new interview with Vogue (opens in new tab), Gigi talked about how important protecting their child's privacy is to her and Zayn—and revealed that she tapped into her circle of famous friends for advice on how to juggle being a famous person with a massive social media following and a privacy-focused parent. Unsurprisingly, Gigi turned to Blake Lively (opens in new tab) who, along with her husband, Ryan Reynolds (opens in new tab), is notoriously private as a parent.
"I have friends who are public figures and that’s how they’ve gone about it, and I see their kids really blossom in a different way," Gigi said, specifically citing Blake and Ryan (opens in new tab), whom she met through mutual friend Taylor Swift, as role models in this arena.
Blake says Gigi reached out (opens in new tab) early during her pregnancy for advice about how to balance her privacy concerns for Khai with her life as a public figure.
"I told her you have to do what works for you," Blake told Vogue (during an interview she conducted "on the phone from her closet, where she was hiding from her three daughters," according to the article). "Gigi has a really special relationship with her fans, and I love how open she is on social media. I love seeing into her world...I’m grateful for what she shares but also understand whatever boundaries she chooses to set."
Same, Blake. Same.
