Gigi Hadid, AKA "khai's mom" per her Insta bio (opens in new tab), rarely shares pics of her little daughter (opens in new tab) (whom she shares with Zayn Malik (opens in new tab)), so each new one is a gift. The model's mom, Yolanda, just treated us to a series of completely adorable photos of her granddaughter—taking care not to show her face to protect her privacy.
In the Instagram carousel (opens in new tab), Khai—clearly quite the animal lover—can be seen hanging out with a baby cow, a goat and a miniature horse, as well as sitting by some sort of crystal formation.
The caption reads, "Happy first birthday to our Angel Khai (opens in new tab)…. No words can express how much love and joy you have brought into our lives in just one year… I had to grow a whole other heart to absorb it all, you are such a magical little being that brings us smiles and blessings everyday. Thank you to your incredible mamma @gigihadid and bubba @zayn for the greatest gift of life!! #Khai"

The last time Khai featured on her mom's Instagram (opens in new tab) was on another very meaningful occasion: for Malik's first Father's Day (opens in new tab). The photo showed Malik holding his daughter next to a light-up globe. "Our Khai is so lucky to have a baba who loves her so much & does anything to see her smile !! @zayn Happy first Father’s Day .. I’m so grateful for all the lil bits of her that are you We love you so much," Hadid wrote. So, so sweet. Happy birthday, Khai!
