Did Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid Just Accidentally Reveal Their Engagement?
The two recently announced that they are expecting their first child—a baby girl—together.
While Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have largely kept their relationship and pregnancy under wraps, new reports now speculate that the two have taken a step towards tying the knot. According to Entertainment Tonight, Zayn has a fresh arm tattoo that addresses marriage—and it's the reason why several of the pair's fans think they're set to wed. "Sing and dance together and be joyous but let each one of you be alone," the ink reads, which is from the poem On Marriage by Kahlil Gibran. "Give your hearts but not into each other's keeping. Stand together yet not too near together; For the pillars of the temple stand apart and the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow."
The singer revealed the tattoo unintentionally—jeweler George Khalife shared an image of his arm while showing off the custom evil eye bracelets he recently made the couple. "Zayn, Gigi, and I all have Middle Eastern roots," the Detroit-based jeweler told the outlet. "In our culture, we like to wear the evil eye for a number of reasons. We wear it to keep away any negative energy or jealousy especially."
We will, however, have to wait from Gigi and Zayn to confirm the rumors—and we might be waiting for quite some time. The duo has remained tight-lipped about their private life, including these engagement plans, but a source close to the couple recently told Entertainment Tonight that they are "over the moon" about bringing their baby girl into the world. "At the end of the day, it didn't matter to the couple what the sex was, but now they can prepare for the new addition before she arrives," the insider added.
Gigi confirmed the pregnancy news during a virtual appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week. Though outlets reported her life update before she could, she said that they are still thankful for the generous support: "Obviously, we wish we could have announced it on our own terms, but we're very excited and happy and grateful for everyone's well-wishes," she said. Their families have been just as supportive in the early months of her pregnancy–they even threw the couple a gender reveal party, which doubled as Gigi's birthday celebration. Best of all, the small event catered to the mom-to-be's pregnancy cravings. "My family brought out an everything bagel cake, which blew my mind because my craving has been everything bagels, and I eat an everything bagel every day," she said.
