Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have stayed tight-lipped about their daughter’s name after welcoming her in September, but fans think they may have sussed it out.

After Gigi’s pal Taylor Swift announced her new album Evermore, eagle-eyed followers have come up with an interesting theory about the baby’s moniker – suggesting the newborn could be called Dorothea.

Earlier this month, Gigi, 25, who gave fans a glimpse of her daughter's nursery, posted a string of throwback snaps of her bump on Instagram. She wrote alongside: “August, waiting for our girl.”

Fans think that Gigi’s caption could be a hint towards what she’s called her daughter – pointing out that the eighth track on Taylor’s previous album Folklore is called August, while the eighth track on Evermore is called Dorothea.

One tweeted: “Y’all hear me out. My bestfriend just cracked something I guess. “August” is track 8 on folklore and gigi has posted a picture on Instagram captioning “August, waiting for our girl” and the track 8 of evermore is dorothea. SO WHAT IF GIGI’S BABY NAME IS DOROTHEA?” [sic]

Another came up with the same theory, saying: “So Gigi Hadid posted a picture a few days ago with the caption “august, waiting for our girl.” And August is the 8 th track on folklore and the 8 th track on evermore is dorothea.” [sic]

It wouldn’t be the first time Taylor has announced the name of a friend’s baby through her music.

The singer confirmed Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds let her reveal the name of their nine-month-old daughter in her track, Betty.

Addressing the speculation over her use of the names James, Inez and Betty on her album Folklore, Taylor said: “I named all the characters in this story after my friend's kids, and I hope you like it!”

Gigi and Zayn, 27, welcomed their baby girl in September. Announcing the birth on Twitter, the former One Direction star shared a black and white picture of their daughter’s tiny hand clutching his finger.

He wrote alongside the image: "The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding."

The supermodel confirmed she was expecting in April while appearing on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

She told the US chat show host that she and Zayn were "happy and grateful for everyone's well wishes and support".

Gigi, who has been dating Zayn on and off since 2015, has been posting snippets of her daughter on Instagram.

In one cute snap, she wrote alongside: “A whole new kind of busy & tired but she’s da bestie so she got Christmas decorations early.”
