Zayn Malik Confirms Gigi Hadid Is His Girlfriend, As If Everybody Didn’t Already Know
At this time last year, Zayn Malik's life was entirely different. In February 2015, he was still part of One Direction. He was also still engaged to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Fast forward to present day, it's a whole different ballgame. Malik recently embarked on his solo career and he has a new love interest in his life. When his video for "PillowTalk" dropped on Friday, it confirmed what everyone was already suspecting: Malik is dating Gigi Hadid. Although he's been shy to comment on the matter, Malik finally confirmed the relationship news in a radio interview with "Zach Sang & The Gang."
One of the hosts asked him, "Was it cool to have your girlfriend in the video?" Malik responded,
Uh, yeah. That was cool. it was something different. We enjoyed it. It was fun. A lot of fun on set.
In case that wasn't clear enough, the host asked again to be 100-percent certain: "No one easier to make out with than your own girlfriend, right?" To which Malik replied in agreement, "Exactly." The hosts all laugh about it and Malik said, "I like what you're doing there."
If you skip ahead to the 10:25 minute mark, you can hear the confirmation for yourself:
Personally, I'm glad they finally made it official. But let's be real, they weren't fooling anyone. Here's a list of all the times Malik and Hadid's relationship was already pretty obvious.
1. This Cat Photo
When Hadid posted this shirtless selfie of Malik on Instagram, it was practically all the evidence fans needed to confirm that these two were together. Why else would he be snuggling up to her cat?
2. This Part Of "PillowTalk"
Don't let those funky colors distract you. They're totally kissing here.
3. Or This Part Of "PillowTalk"
Things get steamy — and no, not just because there's those smokey ghosts floating around in the background.
4. This Polaroid
Looks like Hadid took a page out of her pal Taylor Swift's book. This Polaroid seems to confirm what everyone was already thinking.
5. Gigi's Z Necklace
On Malik's birthday, Hadid posted a photo wearing a "Z" necklace. She even dubbed the occasion "ZDAY," which pretty much speaks for itself.
6. These Flirty Tweets
That emoji usage doesn't scream "just friends" to me. Plus, he called her "babe."
So there you have it! This may be the first time Malik verbally confirmed the news, but his actions had already been speaking louder than words.
