Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s daughter already has a designer wardrobe better than most grown women. From Moschino onesies to Jacquemus, Versace, Lanvin and Missoni clothes, baby Khai has no shortage of outfits to wear while being carted around New York City with her supermodel mum.
Though Emily Ratajkowski is yet to give birth to her first child, the baby gifts from famous friends are already piling up. Just a week after her surprise baby shower, an event in which she was gifted personalised dressing gowns and cushions for “Mama Bear, Daddy Bear, and baby Bear-Rata”, Ratajkowski has shared her pre-baby gift from Donatella Versace.
Ratajkowski shared a photo of a brand new Versace black Medusa top-handle bag, which was debuted during the brand’s spring/summer 2021 show. A Versace runway alumn herself – Ratajkowski walked just two years ago at Milan Fashion Week – it’s no wonder she’d be top priority to receive the new style, complete with a handwritten note from the designer.
While the bag will help Ratajkowski cart baby items around Manhattan, the model is also the proud owner of a Prada diaper bag, an acquisition this editor wouldn’t let a newborn near.
Given Hadid was gifted a baby Versace jumper for her daughter the same week she gave birth, we can expect baby BearRata to be treated to a similar gift upon their arrival earth-side.
For her official pregnancy announcement in October, Ratajkowski penned an essay – her second huge writing piece in as many months – revealing why she and husband Sebastian Bear-McClard are not telling anyone their baby’s gender and are instead, letting their child decide for themselves.
“When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after ‘Congratulations’ is almost always, ‘Do you know what you want?’ We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then,” she explained. “There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to? How will they change our lives and who we are?”
Ratajkowski wrote that while she wants to enforce as little gender stereotypes on her child as possible, she understands the desire to know the gender of the baby growing inside you because “it feels like the first real opportunity to glimpse who they might be.”
Not long now. We can’t wait to meet you Baby Bear-Rata!
