Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid welcomed their first baby last year and reportedly split in October 2021 – get to know the couple, how they met and how long they were together in our complete relationship timeline.
Zayn, 28, and Gigi, 26, reportedly split in October after an alleged family dispute with Yolanda Hadid.
The couple met and began dating in 2015 and began to grow their family last year, with Zayn describing their bundle of joy: "Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together."
As Gigi and Zayn continue to co-parent their baby daughter, let’s take a look back at their relationship from how they met to when they split.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have reportedly called time on their relationship after six years of on-off dating.
The report claimed that ‘Zayn struck her last week' and that Yolanda Hadid was considering filing a police report’.
Following his statement, a source revealed to People that Zigi had called it quits, saying: “They are not together right now. They are both good parents though."
In September 2020 Gigi and Zayn announced the arrival of their baby girl with similar Instagram posts of their daughter's adorably tiny hand.
"Our girl joined us earth-side this weekend and she’s already changed our world. So in love," Gigi captioned her announcement to her 59 million followers.
Meanwhile, Zayn, who is usually quiet on social media, wrote a sweet message to his fans: "Our baby girl is here, healthy and beautiful. to try put into words how i am feeling right now would be an impossible task. The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, and thankful for the life we will have together."
Gigi confirmed she was pregnant days after reports of her baby news first surfaced.
Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon from her family's farm, Gigi told the host: "Obviously, you know, we wish we could've announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited, happy, and grateful for everyone's well-wishes."
TMZ reported on 28 April Gigi is pregnant with her first baby with singer Zayn and hours later Gigi's mum Yolanda confirmed the news to a Dutch radio station, saying she's "excited to become a grandmother in September."
The news came days after Gigi celebrated her 25th birthday, where it looked like she’d combined the bash with a gender reveal party to get her family guessing on whether they’re having a boy or a girl.
Zayn and Gigi met at a friend's birthday party a few years before they got together but were first spotted together just three months after he called off his engagement to Perrie Edwards. The couple were outed after they were photographed holding hands in November 2015.
In January 2016 Gigi starred in Zayn’s steamy ‘PILLOWTALK’ video and weeks later in February they confirmed they’re together, starring in their first joint photo shoot for Vogue in Naples that April.
The couple confirmed their relationship in December 2015 when Zayn posted a now-deleted black and white Polaroid of Gigi holding her beau’s face.
Meanwhile, Gigi shared a topless snap of Zayn holding her cat despite Zayn calling the dating rumours “just good friends” when he spoke to Zane Lowe that same month.
After finally confirming their romance in February 2016 Gigi posted another snap of Zayn with her cat, this time not cutting out the star’s face and captioning it with a pink heart emoji.
The showbiz pair sent photographers into a frenzy when they walked the red carpet together at the 2016 Met Gala.
Gigi looked incredible in a Tommy Hilfiger gown while Zayn wore a Versace suit complete with a robotic arm for the ‘Fashion in an Age of Tehnolgy’ theme.
Gigi and her mum Yolanda spent Eid with Zayn and his family, making the next step in their relationship by getting the families to hang out together. Yolanda even posted a joint selfie of the couple with their mums to mark the special occasion.
Gigi and Zayn first split in March 2018, with each of them posting statements of their own on Twitter before Zayn went on to unfollow both Gigi and her mum.
However, two weeks later they were seen kissing in New York and in June they returned to posting pictures of each other on Instagram.
Break up rumours hit them again in January 2019, with a source at E! claiming this time around: “After trying for a long time, the couple just couldn’t make it work. Zayn has been dealing with personal things for a while and Gigi has become a comfort blanket for him."
After Gigi briefly dated Bachelorette star Tyler Cameron for a brief few months from August to October, she and Zayn got back in touch toward the end of 2019.
The model confirmed they’re back on with a Valentine’s Day post of her man on her family’s farm before they ultimately called time on their relationship once again in October 2021.
