Zayn Malik & Gigi Hadid went to dinner for his 27th birthday, they’re back together

Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik surprise the world with their reconciliation on his birthday in NYC

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid stayed broken up for a solid year, throughout 2019 basically. In 2017 and 2018, they did a lot of on-and-off stuff, breaking up and making up several times in months-long spans. Once I actually read some interviews from Zayn, I understood it more – he sounds like A LOT, especially for a young relationship, you know?

Well, now Zayn is 28 27 and Gigi is 24. They’re still young but they’re not “kids.” And they’re back together officially. They were seen together around New Year’s and there were rumors for weeks now that they had gotten back together. Here’s the confirmation. Zayn and Gigi were spotted together, having dinner in New York on Saturday night. Zayn turned 27 years old on Sunday, and it looked like they did a pre-birthday dinner with a few close friends, and Bella Hadid, Anwar Hadid and Anwar’s girlfriend Dua Lipa Gigi and Zayn walked arm in arm after dinner.

I mean, they’re old enough to know what they’re doing, and we all know couples like this, couples who break up and make up a million times, couples who seem kind of dysfunctional and yet they seem obsessed with each other. I thought it was a good sign for Gigi that she spent time apart from Zayn last year, and she was living that Single Girl life, dating a dude from The Bachelor and hanging out with girlfriends and all that. Is this backsliding? Or is it a couple who truly loves each other and needed time apart to grow and then find their way back to each other? Why am I so invested in this, and why do I feel like I’m the only one who IS invested in this? I have so many questions, clearly.

    They both look happy. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Zayn smile.

  2. MC2 says:

    Matching outfits!!! Okay, I’m here for round 6 of this.

    • SKF says:

      I love that they matched their outfits too! I mean, hate the outfits; but the matchiness is cute!

      Saw other pics and Dua Lipa is wearing a gorgeous long fuchsia coat but she didn’t get it taken up and it is dragging along the ground. It hurts me to see that! Can’t stand seeing such a beautiful coat getting dirty and damaged.

  3. Daisy says:

    What a totally not planned encounter with the paparazzi wow. But well, I actually love Gigi’s outfit and Zayn is looking really well! A while ago I saw some pictures of him and they got me a little worried for his health even though I don’t particularly follow his life/career.

  4. fatladysinging says:

    Awwwwww, look at them in their matchy outfits! Too cute!

    I love his jacket.

  5. Mle428 says:

    My husband and I did the on and off thing for 2 years, and I spent some time dating around, making solid friendships, and living my best life. When we got back together for good we were both ready for a serious relationship and had changed in ways that were compatible. We were right around the age of Zayn and Gigi when we met. Omg…I turn 40 this year. Where does the time go?

  6. S808 says:

    They’re a gorgeous couple.

  7. crogirl says:

    This all reminds me of Liam and Miley, like they can’t just quit each other

  8. Deedee says:

    That hair style does not work for her.

  9. Kersplasha says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen her really smile. It doesn’t even look like her, but good for them!

  10. Sarah says:

    I am invested too 🤷🏻‍♀️

  11. MellyMel says:

    I really like them together, so count me in in being invested.

  12. Case says:

    I kinda like them together, so I’m invested too. I have a feeling they’ll get married eventually.

  13. Lucy says:

    He could be about to release some new music, methinks. Run, Gigi, run!

  14. whatWHAT? says:

    why is her face so…big? I mean, it looks like she had an allergic reaction to something and it swelled up.

    and those are two terrible outfits. his screams 90s to me. Like, I had a jacket like it in college, circa 1991. and her suit is some Dynasty realness. horrible color, too.

    • brooksie says:


    • J says:

      I agree. His jacket and her suit are all kinds of ick. And her face does look much wider – I didn’t recognize her. She also looks kind of green – don’t know whether it’s purely because the color she’s wearing or if she’s ill.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        I didn’t notice that it looked wider, but def “puffy”.

        like, I had a roommate in college who ate something and her face swelled up like this until she took some benedryl. my sister got REALLY bad sunburn on her face and it swelled up like this.

        she looks WEIRD. and normally I see her and I think she’s quite pretty, but these pics are just bad.

    • Elisa says:

      HA, I’m glad I’m not the only one noticing sth weird is going on with her face. Maybe fillers recently?
      Anyways, the outfits are incredibly ugly, they remind me of the old Batman movies I saw over the weekend. :)

    • Case says:

      I think she has a thyroid disease. Maybe it’s from that/medications she’s on for it.

      • Sana says:

        Thyroid medications do not cause your face to bloat, I know that cuz I take them too. In fact, if she has hypothyroidism as she claims, not taking the meds might cause her eyes and eyelids to get puffy and gain weight. I doubt she doesn’t take her meds for thyroid cuz it’s a life long condition and you have to take the thyroid hormones supplements every day of your life. It looks like a coke bloat or worse fillers to me! Not a cool look I’m afraid

    • Joanna says:

      Yeah, I noticed that too. I wonder if she’s pregnant? I’ve never seen her face this full. Those ARE some fugly outfits.

  15. Michael says:

    Those Hadid girls are tenacious with making sure they give relationship every possible chance. I predict Bella and Abel will also get back together in the next few months. Not sure if it is healthy or not but Gigi and Zayn look really happy

  16. Leriel says:

    I’d say they are like Justin and Selena or Liam and Miley, but there are a lot of gossips that these two are doing this relationship thing just for publicity, and even right now pap stroll at Gigi birthday, so occasional yeah.

  17. jenner says:

    Those are some god-awful outfits!

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Right? I am not here for the awful blandness of 90′s fashion that “the kids” are into now. Gold chains over a turtleneck is not the look.

  18. Sarah says:

    My only question is WHAT are they wearing??? This looks like a version of a super dated suit I got in a charity shop and passively aggressively wore to my dads second wedding.

  19. Sharon Clark says:

    Lol, I just can’t with her outfit. They both look super happy though. Gigi looks a bit different though, could just be the hair, but does she have a certain “glow”?

  20. Lizounette says:

    I’m totally invested in this and would love more sexy music videos from the two of them. YUM

  21. sammiches says:

    Her face is…big.

  22. Gatorlover says:

    Speculation: they have gone through rehab and are past whatever unhealthy practices were keeping them fashionably thin before. Great news if so – they do look happy and healthy, more power to them, and the rest of the world can take a leap.

    • Amy says:

      Gator, I really hope you’re right. He looks much healthier and a better weight. Her face gives me pause though. It could be weight gain, could be coke bloat…. hope these two can be good for each other and make it work. They clearly don’t want to stay apart.
