In the post, Malik shared snaps of Khai’s Frozen-themed birthday cake from Carlo's Bakery, as well as an elaborate Skittles-themed rainbow cake. He also held his little girl as she blew out her candles and affectionately placed his head on her head as she played with a mini stereo.
Malik’s former One Direction bandmate Louis Tomlinson wrote under the post, “Happy birthday Khai!!”
A fan also commented: “The best dad in the game,” while a second said, “Happiest of birthdays to this little angel🏽💕🤗.”
On Wednesday, Hadid, 28, posted her own tribute to Khai for her special day, calling her daughter the "love of my life."
“Have been celebrating our THREE YR OLD this week 🌞🌈⚡️🌻 & just so honored to get to be her mama, to get to see life through her !!!! Happy Birthday to my sweetest, smartest, spunkiest bestie !!!!!!!! 💓 DREAM KID / love of my life🦄🦄🦄,” the supermodel wrote in the caption for a carousel of images.
Included in the series of snaps were shots of Hadid and Khai through the years, what appeared to be a birthday breakfast for the little girl and the same fun Frozen-themed cake that Malik included in his Thursday post.
“Greatest gift of all,” Khai’s grandmother Yolanda Hadid sweetly commented on the post
Hadid recently opened up about co-parenting with the “Still Got Time” singer. “I think when you are a parent, you have to be intentional because, now, I literally have half the time,” the model told NET-A-PORTER'S digital title PORTER earlier this month.
"I work when my daughter is with her dad, and that’s the time I have."
