Rumours of ex One Direction member Zayn Malik dating model Gigi Hadid escalated all the more after the two were seen holding hands last month, and the fact that over the past few weeks, the couple have become inseparable.
And going by the latest Instagram photo posted by Zayn it definitely looks like the couple is indeed dating.
Zayn posted a picture of them on Instagram on Sunday morning drawing immediate reactions from fans worldwide.
In what is seen as the couple’s first Instagram moment and picture, the photo shows the two locked in an intimate clinch.
The black and white snap shows the former One Direction member’s eyes closed in bliss while the 20 year old model beauty sweetly cradles his head in her arms.
Gigi is seen in a tomboyish outlook with a baseball cap and oversized coat as she playfully runs her hands through Zayn’s beard.
Zayn’s ex fiancée Perrie Edwards too seems to have found love again. The Little Mix singer is dating model and nightclub promoter Leon King. The two have been on a string of dates.
Just recently, Perrie was seen enjoying a romantic Christmas date with the handsome model. According to a report published in The Sun, Perrie was seen arm-in-arm with the handsome hunk Leon during a visit to Winter Wonderland in London on Tuesday evening.
The pop princess enjoyed her day out sans her band mates Jade Thirlwall, 22, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 24 and Jesy Nelson, 24, for the festive outing.
According to the report published in The Sun, the couple looked “very cozy as they walked around. Perrie and Leon linked arms and looked closer than friends.”
“It was just the two of them, other than Perrie’s security guards, who kept a close eye on them as they mingled with the public. She is due some happiness after what happened with Zayn. Hopefully Leon can give her that.”
Zayn ended his engagement to Perrie last August. In an interview to Fader magazine, the 22 year old denied that he cruelly ended their relationship via a text message.
“I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message. I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that.”
“She knows that, I know that, and the public should know as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did, I just want the public to know I didn’t do that.”
Zayn’s current girlfriend Gigi too came out of a recent split from Joe Jonas after dating him for a few months.
