Gigi Hadid, a supermodel, has been outspoken about not wanting pictures of her youngster out there in the media.
“I write this all to say: to the Paparazzi, press, and beloved fan accounts, you know we have never intentionally shared our daughter’s face on social media,” the letter read. “Our wish is that she can choose how to share herself with the world when she comes of age, and that she can live as normal of a childhood as possible, without worrying about a public image that she has not chosen.”
