Zayn ‘adamantly denied’ the allegations and is said to be co-parenting his baby girl Khai with Gigi, with hopes to avoid a custody battle over their 13-month-old daughter.
Now Gigi’s dad, Mohamed, has broken his silence amid the dispute between his ex-wife, whom he was married to for four years, and Zayn.
Taking to Instagram to share a series of snaps of Gigi, as well as some father and daughter shots, the property developer gushed over the 26-year-old.
He wrote in the caption: “Simply love you my daughter and I am so proud of you ..Babba of @gigihadid and Jido of Khai."
In Mohamed’s native language Arabic, babba means dad while jido means grandfather.
The post comes just a few days after Gigi’s sister Bella and brother Anwar unfollowed Zayn on Instagram.
Meanwhile, Zayn’s sister Waliyha shared some cryptic posts on Instagram amid the claims, and threw support behind her big brother.
Gigi’s rep told E! following the dispute that she is ‘solely focused on the best for Khai’ right now.
“She asks for privacy during this time,” they added.
