The baby was born to mother-of-three Gigi and her partner, rapper-producer/singer-produce Tarek Abdul-Jabbar, in their hometown of Las Vegas.
Gigi was named after her favorite movie, Gigi, and her sister, Gig, who is also a Disney princess.
Tarek and Gigi were already planning their own baby names when they started recording, Tarekt told Recode.
Tatyana, Gigia and Gigie, as well as their names, were inspired by the movie “The Blue Fairy.”
They were originally named after the movie’s star, Gigie.
“When I was little, my mother called me by my first name,” Gigi said.
“It’s not the name that was the biggest inspiration for me to make the name Gigi.”
Gigi has also shared her thoughts on how the name changed after the birth of her daughter.
“Gigi Hadid was always my first baby name.
I thought it would be funny if it changed,” Gigia told RecODE.
“I think she was going to be a star.
I think it’s going to make people like her and like my name.”
The couple said they are happy for the reaction the name has received, and hope that others will be inspired to give their babies a unique name.
“It’s an honor to be in a position to be able to give a name to a baby girl and be able tell her it’s her name and to make her proud and happy,” Gigie said.
