As Hadid recently shared in an interview, she plans her work commitments for times when Khai is with her father, ensuring that their daughter can be with both parents. The 27-year-old expressed her happiness about the situation, saying that it brings her joy to know that Khai can spend quality time with both of her parents.
The split between Hadid and Malik made headlines in October 2021, just over a year after they welcomed their daughter. The break-up reportedly came amid a family dispute between Malik and Hadid’s mother, Yolanda Hadid.
According to a police report, Malik allegedly “grabbed and shoved,” Yolanda, causing mental anguish and physical pain. However, the former One Direction member denied the allegations and pleaded no contest to four counts of harassment.
Despite the reported family dispute, Hadid has made it clear that she and Malik are on good terms and are committed to co-parenting their daughter. Hadid even gave a shout-out to Malik on Father’s Day, showing her appreciation for his role in Khai’s life.
Khai is Able to See Both Parents Regularly
Hadid and Malik remain committed to co-parenting Khai, despite their split and reported family issues. The model has emphasized the importance of putting their daughter’s needs first, to ensure she can spend quality time with both parents.
This includes making adjustments to their work schedules to ensure that Khai is always well-cared for. When Khai is with Malik, Hadid arranges her work schedule to coincide with this time. This process is great, since both parents are able to focus on their passions, while still being parents.
Separated or divorced parents who prioritize their children’s needs are increasingly adopting this co-parenting approach. By working together to schedule their work commitments around their child’s time, parents can help to create a sense of stability and consistency for their child, even in the face of a difficult family situation.
