When it comes to dating in the public eye, Gigi Hadid is no stranger to a high-profile romance! The model has been romantically linked to tons of famous faces over the years.
Looking at who she’s been with in the past, it’s clear Gigi has a thing for musicians. When she first stepped foot into the spotlight, the California native appeared in the 2013 music video for Cody Simpson‘s single “Surfboard.” They started dating shortly thereafter. After a nearly two-year relationship, the pair ultimately went their separate ways in 2015. Gigi briefly moved on with Joe Jonas from June until November 2015.
Perhaps Gigi’s most famous relationship was with Zayn Malik, whom she shares daughter Khai, born in September 2020.
“I’m really thankful that I met her,” the former One Direction member told GQ in June 2018 of their relationship. “She’s helped me to look at things from a positive angle.”
Romance rumors between Gigi and Zayn first started swirling in 2015. They confirmed their relationship with a kiss in the 2016 music video for Zayn’s debut single “Pillowtalk.” Throughout the next few years, the couple experienced some ups and downs, and split twice before reconciling one final time in January 2020. Months later, it was announced that they would be expecting a baby together. The duo announced the birth of baby Khai via social media.
“To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task,” Zayn wrote on Twitter in September 2020. “The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine & thankful for the life we will have together x.”
Gigi, for her part, spoke about her and Zayn’s experiences as first-time parents during a February 2021 interview with Vogue.
“You have a kid and you’re lying in bed together and you look over and you’re like, ‘OK what now?’ And you ask all of your friends the same questions, and everyone has a different answer,” she said at the time. “And that’s when you kind of realize that everyone figures it out for themselves. And you do it in your own way, and you can take bits and pieces from people, but you’re always going to end up doing it a little bit differently. This is our way.”
The two have since gone their separate ways following an incident involving Gigi’s mom, Yolanda Hadid. In October 2021, Zayn shared a social media statement and addressed a reported altercation in which he allegedly “struck” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum. He went on to “adamantly” deny the claims in a separate statement to TMZ. Court documents obtained by J-14 at the time showed that Zayn pleaded no contest to four counts of summary harassment and was put on 360 days of probation (90 for each count) following the alleged altercation. Amid the situation, Us Weekly confirmed that Gigi and Zayn had called it quits.
