Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid are the undeniably stunning couple who are parents to gorgeous daughter Khai, but the two have come a long way since they started dating in November 2015. We bring you a rundown of their relationship.
Zayn Malik breaks up with Perrie Edwards
In August 2015, handsome Zayn Malik broke off his 4 year relationship with Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards after a couple of months of leaving One Direction. Perrie Edwards claims that he broke it off over text although he refutes the claim.
Perrie Edwards was pretty heartbroken and as is the case with many heartbroken musicians she sang about it in a revenge anthem “Shout Out to My Ex” which came complete with digs at Zayn Malik.
Gigi Hadid breaks up with Joe Jonas and gets together with Zayn
Not long after in November 2015 Gigi Hadid broke up with Joe Jonas because the two were too busy and a good job too because she wouldn’t have started casually dating Zayn Malik. Hadid and Malik were photographed leaving Justin Bieber’s American Music Awards after-party together.
A source told Us Weekly at the time;
"It's a very new thing. They're just seeing where it goes."
Another source told the outlet,
"I wouldn't call them boyfriend and girlfriend. But seeing each other? Definitely. He's chuffed."
And who wouldn’t be chuffed, it is Gigi Hadid afterall.
Joe Jonas was not happy and unfollowed Gigi and Zayn
It wasn’t long before the two were caught holding hands leaving a late-night spot and seemed like Joe Jonas was not happy. He told Mirror
"I think it's interesting that she moved on so quickly, I mean it was definitely very quick," and then quickly proceeded to unfollow both Hadid and Malik.
Ok, we get it of course its not nice to move on that quickly but this could be true love. A romantic black and white picture of the two posted by Zayn Malik pretty much confirmed the relationship in December 2015 although that picture has since been deleted.

Things then moved even quicker than anyone would have imagined. In January 2016, Zayn and Gigi’s cat became quickly acquainted based on an Instagram picture that was shared. She was then seen to wear a necklace with Z on it on his birthday along with the caption ZDAY and soon after came the sizzling video pillowtalk featuring her.
The day after, Malik wrote;
