Zayn Malik shared a rare glimpse of his daughter, Khai, to celebrate her 3rd birthday.
“Happy birthday to my everything, you are the most amazing soul I’ve ever known,” the One Direction alum captioned a collage of polaroid snaps posted to Instagram Thursday.
“Every day I get with you is a blessing that I cherish beyond words. 3 already!! Where has that time gone?” he continued.
“My beautiful little girl, I couldn’t live without you, thank you for all the love you bring to my life.”
The sweet snaps captured Malik — who shares Khai with ex Gigi Hadid — helping the birthday girl open her presents.
Other photos revealed Khai had several delicious treats for the special occasion, including a “Frozen”-themed cake and another rainbow confection topped with Skittles.
The British pop star, 30, covered his daughter’s face with a snowflake emoji, but she could still be seen blowing out her candles and indulging in a slice of cake.
Fans praised the doting dad while sharing celebratory wishes for the toddler, whose birthday was on Tuesday.
“The most sweet Baba ever🥺,” one person wrote in the comments.

“This is soo sweet❤️🩹 little Elsaaaa,” another posted, referring to the popular Disney movie.
“Khai is so lucky to have you!” a third added.
“Khai has the best dad ever 😭😭😭🥺,” a fourth user chimed in.
Hadid, 28, also paid tribute to her mini-me on social media after celebrating her daughter’s birthday earlier this week.
“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 !!!!” she captioned an Instagram carousel Wednesday.
Over the weekend, the Guest in Residence founder hosted a slime-themed birthday bash for Khai at the Sloomoo Institute interactive museum in NYC.
As Page Six previously reported, Bella Hadid and Blake Lively were in attendance. However, it’s unclear whether Malik received an invite.
Gigi has maintained an amicable co-parenting relationship with the “Pillowtalk” singer following their split in October 2021.
The duo ended their five-year on-and-off relationship after the supermodel’s mom, Yolanda Hadid, accused Malik of hitting her during a heated argument.
Although the former boy bander denied the allegations, he pleaded no contest to harassment charges and was ordered to complete an anger management class and a domestic violence program.
Despite staying away from the spotlight for the past few years, the “Better” hitmaker recently opened up about fatherhood on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast.
“Since I’ve had my daughter, the main thing in my mind is trying to be a good example to her,” he said in July.
“I used to get a lot of anxiety around having a conversation like this. And I want her to be able to look at me and be like, ‘Yo, my dad’s doing this.’”
