Things seem to be getting serious between Gigi Hadid and former One Direction singer Zayn Malik as a report late Sunday said that Hadid may be headed to the U.K. to meet Malik’s parents. The latest report comes after the rumored couple was spotted holding hands while walking out of a club in West Hollywood, California, on Saturday night.
Hadid shared a Snapchat post on Sunday showing her eyes covered with her hair and captioned it, “England!” The picture led to speculation over whether Hadid was on her way to meet Malik’s parents, according to Hollywood Life. The report also said that Malik, 22, who ended his engagement with Perrie Edwards in August, is now completely smitten by the 20-year-old model.
“Zayn has had his eye on Gigi for a while, he’s absolutely smitten with her good looks,” a source told Hollywood Life, adding: “He was just waiting for the right moment, until she was single, to really make his move. But he’s been wanting to get a chance to date her for quite a while.”
The source added: “Zayn’s been dating lots of girls, but he would definitely prioritize Gigi and commit to her, if she wanted the same thing.”
Reports last week suggested that Hadid and Malik were dating after the two were spotted after the American Music Awards (AMA) on Nov. 22, where she partied at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood and left in Malik's car. Us Weekly first reported about the rumored relationship, citing a source, who said: "It’s a very new thing. They're just seeing where it goes."
Another source told Us Weekly: "I wouldn't call them boyfriend and girlfriend. But seeing each other? Definitely. He's chuffed."
The publication also cited an eyewitness who saw them catching up after the party at The Nice Guy. "Gigi was leaving The Nice Guy. Gigi went out the front, though. She walked down the street and jumped into the car where Zayn was waiting to pick her up," the eyewitness said.
Hadid had ended her relationship with singer Joe Jonas, 26, earlier this month after dating for five months.
