While the new mom has documented her road to motherhood, that doesn’t mean she wants her daughter in the public eye. In July, Gigi penned an open letter to the paparazzi and asked them to respect Khai’s privacy.
“As our baby grows up we have to realize that we can’t protect her from everything the way we wanted to and could when she was smaller,” Gigi wrote in a note shared to Twitter. “She loves seeing the world! And although she gets a lot of that out near the farm, she also gets to experience other places—a true blessing. On our most recent visits to New York, she has started to want her sun shade lifted up (something she is used to at home) and helps herself to it!”
Gigi continued, “She doesn’t understand why she’s covered in the city or what I’ve wanted to protect her from.”
To that, the model asked photographers, “You know we have never intentionally shared our daughter’s 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.”
