During his appearance as a guest on Alex Cooper’s podcast, Call Her Daddy, Zayn shared a glimpse into his life as a devoted father, connecting with his fans on a deeply personal level.
People magazine quoted the British musician saying that he chose to be low-key lately because of being ‘over exposed’ after his group’s massive global success.
He said, “That’s why I took the that I have to, like, not even necessarily do interviews.”
Revealing that his daughter Khai, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid, has motivated him to open up again.
The teaser of the episode which releases on Wednesday saw Zayn telling Cooper, “Since I have had my daughter, the main thing in my mind is trying to be a good example for her,” adding that interview was also to inspire his daughter.
He added, “I used to get a lot of anxiety but now I am doing this because I want her to look at me and say ‘My dad’s doing this’.”
His daughter Khai is now 2.5 years of age, and he is raising her with ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid.
Though, the couple separated in 2021, but they are dedicated to raising their daughter together.
