The singer admits he “didn’t expect” to be enjoying parenthood as much as he currently is with “amazing” daughter Khai
Zayn Malik opened up for the first time about raising his daughter Khai with Gigi Hadid, in a new interview on iHeartRadio’s Valentine. Malik, who recently released new single “To Begin Again” with Ingrid Michaelson, revealed he and Hadid found it “really easy” to adjust to parenthood, calling baby Khai an “amazing baby.” Adorable! Their child was born in September 2020.
Asked about becoming a father, Malik replied, “Honestly, it’s amazing. A lot of people that I was speaking to, obviously before she was born and stuff were like, ‘It’s a big adjustment, and it’s going to be a massive change and stuff,”
“But honestly, she’s an amazing baby. It’s been really easy for me and Gigi to kind of just ease into it, I guess. She kind of made it easy for us. She sleeps really well, she loves her milk.”
“It’s just feeding and changing diapers at the minute. It’s wicked. I’m enjoying it, for sure,” added the 28-year-old singer.
He also revealed that despite being a family now, marriage with Gigi, isn’t on the cards, yet.
“We’re both quite young, even though we’ve had a kid and stuff. We’re still thinking about work and things we want to do career-wise, but maybe then in the far future, yeah, when we eventually pick a place to settle down, it will probably be something kind of similar to this, for sure, where it’s a relaxed environment and we can just chill out,” he said
The former One Direction star admits that he didn’t expect to be quite so into“the daddy life”, recalling that pre-baby he was always “into myself, doing my own thing.” Now, however, he can’t get enough of his time with Khai.
