He’s baring it all! Not only did Zayn Malik show off his collection of back tattoos in a rare shirtless selfie on Instagram, but the former One Direction crooner also seemed to tease his next project.
“Got some stuff to show ya soon!” Zayn, 27, captioned a social media post from Thursday, September 10.
Fans quickly took to the comment section and hoped the caption meant he’s gearing up to release new music. His last album, Icarus Falls, was released back in 2018, and Zayn has been quiet on the music front since then.
Zayn’s shirtless post broke his monthlong social media silence just ahead of the birth of his first baby with girlfriend Gigi Hadid, who revealed she was 33 weeks along on August 31. The model, 25, also left a comment sharing her excitement for whatever he has in the works.
As fans know, Gigi first confirmed that she and Zayn had a baby on the way on April 30 after rumors started to circulate that she was pregnant.
“Obviously, we wish we could’ve announced it on our own terms, but we’re very excited and happy and grateful for everyone’s well wishes and support,” she said during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at the time.
After she confirmed the news, a friend of the couple told Life & Style that although Gigi’s parents were “shocked” by the pregnancy at first, they’ve completely embraced Zayn into their family and are super excited.
“[They] didn’t know what to think when Gigi first told them [about the pregnancy] … but now, they’re excited,” the insider explained. “Seeing Gigi so happy makes them happy. They’ve welcomed Zayn into the family.”
Since then, Gigi’s been pretty open about her pregnancy on social media. She took to Instagram showed off her growing baby bump in a photoshoot from July and even opened up about her cravings. When a fan on Twitter asked what she’s been eating, she said, “Supreme triple chunk brownies [and] make-your-own ranch mix dip [with] carrots.”
