Zayn Malik shared a rare glimpse of his daughter, Khai, to celebrate her 3rd birthday.
“Happy birthday to my entire being, you are the most incredible soul I have ever known,” the One Direction alum captioned a collage of polaroid photos posted to Instagram on Thursday.
“Every day I spend with you is a blessing that I cherish beyond words. 3 already!! Where did this time go? 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 that Khai had several delicious treats for the special occasion, including a “Frozen”-themed cake and another rainbow confection topped with Skittles.
The 30-year-old British pop star covered her 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 congratulated the doting dad while sharing their birthday wishes for the little one, whose birthday was on Tuesday.
“The sweetest Baba ever🥺,” one person wrote in the comments.

Hadid, 28, also paid tribute to her mini-me on social media after celebrating her daughter’s birthday earlier this week.
“I celebrated our THREE YEARS this week and I am so honored to be able to be her mom, to see life through her!!!!” she captioned an Instagram carousel on Wednesday.
Over the weekend, the Guest in Residence founder threw a slime-themed birthday party for Khai at the Sloomoo Institute interactive museum in New York City.
As Page Six previously reported, Bella Hadid and Blake Lively were in attendance. However, it is unclear whether Malik received an invitation.
Gigi enjoyed an amicable co-parenting relationship with the “Pillowtalk” singer following their split in October 2021.
The duo ended their on-again, off-again five-year relationship after the model’s mother, Yolanda Hadid, accused Malik of hitting her during a heated argument.
Although the former boy band denied the allegations, they pleaded no contest to the hara*sment charges and were ordered to complete an anger management cla*s and domestic violence program.
Although he’s stayed out of the spotlight in recent years, the “Better” hitmaker recently opened up about fatherhood on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast.
“Since I had my daughter, the main thing on my mind is to try to be a good example to her,” he said in July.
“I used to be very anxious about having a conversation like this. And I want her to be able to look at me and say, ‘Yo, that’s my dad doing that.’
