Gigi Hadid Explains How She’s Balancing Work and Parenting Since Becoming a Mom

Gigi Hadid’s life completely changed since she became a mom three years ago – including her approach to work. The famous model recently told Net-A-Porter that her approach to picking projects is more “intentional” because she wants to spend as much time as possible with her daughter.

The 28-year-old model welcomed her three-year-old daughter Khai with singer Zayn Malik back in 2020. The couple eventually split up and they’re now fully committed to co-parenting their baby girl together.

Hadid recently told Net-A-Porter that she learned to balance her professional and personal life in a brand-new way after becoming a mom.

“I think when you are a parent, you have to be intentional because, now, I literally have half the time. I work when my daughter is with her dad, and that’s the time I have. And the jobs I choose to fill that time with have to be ones that are fulfilling to me,” explained Hadid.

The famous model also revealed that her love for Khai inspired her to embrace old hobbies that she left behind a long time ago. She recently crocheted a unicorn for her daughter during a six-hour flight to Los Angeles and revealed that Khai enjoys trying on clothes from her upcoming Guest in Residence’s upcoming kids’ collection.
