Supermodel Gigi Hadid and singer Zayn Malik have decided to protect their daughter Khai’s privacy when it comes to paparazzi, the press and social media, saying they will not be sharing photos of her face.
In an open letter shared on Twitter she asked media and fan accounts to please continue to keep Khai’s face out of photos, or to hide her face in pictures if they are published.
“I know the laws change State to State, and I’ve seen some paparazzi photos of kids in NYC with their faces blurred- but, from asking around, I believe that that comes down to the integrity of the photographer, publication, or fans sharing the images,” Hadid wrote.
“I write this all to say: to the Paparazzi, press, and beloved fan accounts, you know we have never intentionally shared our daughters face on social media. Our wish is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes of age, and that she can live as normal of a childhood as possible, without worrying about a public image that she has not chosen.”
