Gigi Hadid can’t help but gush over her boyfriend Zayn Malik.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the model shared how much she admires the former One Direction member. She also talked about Malik’s career as a solo artist and how passionate the singer is about his music.
“I’m so excited for him,” Hadid said. “I think that he is so talented and comes from such a genuine place of loving music. He only gets up there when he feels really excited about it, so for the music that he put out, I think he really deserves to be appreciated for it.”
This is not the first time Hadid has spoken about her admiration for her beau, though. In an interview with ES magazine, Hadid gushed about how intelligent Malik is. She also said that they share a lot of the same interests, and that’s one of the reasons why their relationship is smooth sailing.
The feeling is mutual, it appears. Malik has also expressed her admiration for Hadid several times in interviews. Speaking with Elle U.K., the “Pillow Talk” singer said Hadid is very intelligent, and that’s one of the things he likes most about her. Malik also said that he’s happy that they understand each other and what they want to do with their careers.
Their romance seems to be in great shape; their families appear to be happy about their relationship, too. Hadid’s mother, Yolanda, slightly talked about her relationship with Malik in an Instagram post in September. Posting a photo of the couple, Yolanda said: “Happiness is seeing your kids happy and realizing they turned out to be really good and genuine people.”
Gigi and Malik were first spotted together November last year. Malik confirmed that they are dating in February 2016 during an interview about the music video for “Pillow Talk,” in which he starred with Gigi.
