They've been keeping their new daughter's name under wraps since she was born in September, but Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have offered several glimpses of their first child.

In a newly uploaded photo, the supermodel gave a rare peek of her daughter after feeding, with the tot wearing grey trousers and marigold socks.

"She burps sunshine," Hadid, 25, captioned the shot, uploaded to her Instagram stories on November 8.

The couple have so far only shared images of their daughter's hands, as well as one photo where the baby's face was concealed.

Hadid shared a family portrait with Malik and their daughter on October 31, as they marked their first Halloween as a trio.

The new mother, who is of Palestinian and Dutch descent, was dressed as Samus Aran from Nintendo game Metroid, while British-Pakistani singer Malik took style cues from Harry Potter's Draco Malfoy and sported a Slytherin uniform.

Their daughter wore a green jersey and a knitted green hat, with black woollen hair. A Hulk arm was photoshopped over her fist, and a glimpse of her sandy hair could be spotted underneath a superhero emoji covering her face.

The couple confirmed her birth on September 23.

"Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love," Hadid wrote on Instagram at the time.

"Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful. To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together,” Malik, 27, posted on his own Instagram page.

The supermodel and musician are yet to announce the name of their daughter, but fans have nicknamed her Zigi.

News of Hadid's pregnancy was first revealed in April, and the model later confirmed the news to US chat show host Jimmy Fallon, saying the couple were “extremely happy and excited”.

The model and Malik have been in an on and off relationship since 2015. They broke up for a period in 2018, but it was confirmed they were back together in December 2019.
