When asked how Gigi was doing following the birth of her first child, he replied: “I’m sure she’s doing well.”

The supermodel has yet to reveal a name; although she has shown affinity for Lily in the past, her dad refused to be drawn.

“That you’d have to aske her,” he said with a coy laugh.

So far, the couple have only shared an adorable pic each of the tot clutching her parent’s fingers with her tiny fist; her grandad also refused to be drawn on who she most resembles.

“She’s an angel,” was all he would divulge.
