    Fans Think They Spotted Gigi And Zayn's Baby Name On His Wrist, Days Before Gigi Revealed Her Name

    *Zooms in.*

    Hello! So, as you probably know, Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid had a baby in September.

    Yesterday, Gigi revealed their daughter's name in the most casually cool way possible — updating her IG bio to read, "Khai's mom."

    The name is likely a reference to Gigi's paternal grandmother, Khairia.

    Well, if you've been wondering if Zayn might give Khai's name a lil' shoutout — some eagle-eyed fans think they have the answer.

    If I ever go missing, please put some Zayn stans on the case.

    Yes — fans think that Zayn has his bb's name tattooed on his wrist in Arabic.

    A new tattoo on Zayn’s wrist seems to say “خاي“ meaning “Khai” in Arabic. https://t.co/dkMKt6EoH4

    Naturally, I was curious. So I did some SRS investigative journalism™ to find out — which took me to his IG live on Jan. 17.

    Hmm, there did seem to be something there!

    Very curious.

    Then the moment that people had been screenshotting:

    It does look a lot like "خاي" — Khai's name in Arabic:

    I flipped the image here because it seems to have previously been mirrored.

    This would certainly be in line with Zayn's other tattoos — he's got Gigi's eyes on his chest, as well as numerous pieces in Arabic.

    We'll keep you posted if any ~slightly~ clearer pics emerge.
