From Lovers to Parents! Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik’s Relationship Timeline

It’s hard to believe Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have only been together since 2015. After all, so much has happened over the course of their off-again, on-again relationship. In September 2020, the supermodel and the former One Direction singer welcomed baby No. 1, a daughter named Khai.

Prior to settling down and starting their family, Gigi and Zayn had a roller-coaster romance. Most notably, the A-list pair split up in January 2019, during which time Gigi moved on with former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Cameron.

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills guest star dated the reality TV personality for two months before things fizzled out in October 2019. Come January 2020, Gigi and Zayn were officially back together.

The couple first sparked reconciliation rumors in December 2019 after Gigi shared a photo of herself cooking one of Zayn’s mother Trisha Malik‘s recipes. “Sunday in the kitchen: About to marinate the chicken for one of my favorites!” she captioned her IG post at the time. “@mamamalik’s Chicken Curry Pasta salad. Hopefully, she’ll share the recipe with the world one day.”

Later, on January 11, 2020, Gigi and Zayn were spotted heading to the “Better” singer’s birthday dinner at the Mediterranean–Italian restaurant il Buco in New York City.

“Yes, they’re giving their relationship another shot but are keeping it on the down-low and taking it slow,” an insider revealed to Life & Style after their outing. “Gigi’s family is warning her to think twice. They don’t want to see her get hurt again.”

Thankfully, Gigi’s family, including mom Yolanda Hadid, have definitely come around to the idea of them being together. “Seeing Gigi so happy makes them happy. They’ve welcomed Zayn into the family,” a separate source told Life & Style in April 2020. “They didn’t know what to think when Gigi first told them about the pregnancy … but now, they’re excited.”

As for the future? Gigi and Zayn — affectionately referred to as Zigi — are just enjoying being parents with no plans to give Khai a sibling anytime soon. “Afterward, Z and I looked at each other and were like, ‘We can have some time before we do that again,'” Gigi told Vogue magazine during a February 2020 interview about her experience giving birth.”
