When the young and shy Zayn Malik awkwardly danced on stage with tens of other hopefuls at The X Factor bootcamp, before storming off the stage and threatening to quit the show, nobody at the time would have been able to predict the incredible life this young man has already had. As well as getting to travel the world as part of the biggest boyband on the planet, One Direction, Zayn has also been enjoying plenty of success in his solo career too.
As well as that, we have also seen Zayn Malik enjoying his fair share of happiness in his personal life, with the music superstar in a long-term relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid, following his split from Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Zayn and Gigi have been together for a while now and the singer has admitted that he is now looking at the possibility of settling down and starting a family with his girlfriend.
Malik was recently chatting to Us Weekly magazine, when he was asked about settling down with Hadid, to which he replied, "'I don't think things like that should be decided based on feeling pressure. When it's the right time and place, hopefully that will happen. Who knows when that will be."
We love seeing Zayn Malik so happy after some of the lows he has experienced in recent years and we think Gigi Hadid is the perfect woman for him. While there is no official talk of settling down and starting a family any time soon, we do think that these two stars have what it takes to last the test of time and enjoy a long and happy life together.
