Zayn Malik reportedly wants to propose to Gigi Hadid just three months after they reunited, but she has other plans in mind.
A source told Daily Star, “Zayn is keen to prove his love by proposing to Gigi and getting married. He’s head over heels in love and wants to prove to the world he’s committed and their relationship is the real deal. Despite temporarily splitting for seven weeks earlier this year, Zayn is still considering proposing and has suggested a secret wedding with no guests.”
“Gigi knows his feelings, but has concerns that they could be rushing into it. She loves him but wants to focus on her career and life,” the insider added. “Gigi is happy getting their relationship back on track but has made it clear they are not ready to get engaged just yet.”
The former One Direction singer and the supermodel began dating in December 2015. Earlier this year, the couple split up, writing lengthy statements about each other and their relationship. Malik wrote on Twitter, “Gigi and I have an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend.”
Just six weeks after this split, the two were seen kissing on the streets of New York and have been back together ever since. It seems this time Malik is not willing to let Hadid go, and wants to propose to her and get married as soon as possible.
Despite Malik’s insistence, the paper said that Hadid ‘is not ready’ to get engaged just months after reconnecting with the singer and probably wants more time before she can make such kinds of decisions.
Malik also reportedly proposed to Hadid in 2016, and she turned him down then as well.
According to Life & Style, “She’s only 21 and doesn’t feel ready to tie the knot, so she turned him down. She’s seen her mom go through two messy divorces, so Gigi wants to make 100 per cent sure Zayn’s the one before she makes a lifetime commitment.”
Even though Hadid is afraid to take the final leap, Hadid is by no means less invested in this relationship. She took to Instagram to slam haters for their scrutiny of her relationship, writing, “I just know what a beautiful world there is to go out and live in instead of trying to dissect a relationship between two people that you don’t even know.”
She also commented on the fact that he does not follow her Instagram account, writing, “I don’t need his follow. My eyes are tattooed to his chest.”
Neither Zayn nor Gigi have commented on the news.
