Gigi Hadid celebrates Eid with Zayn Malik, his sister. See their cute pic
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik are still going strong. The model and her pop star boyfriend have been dating since 2015, with a minor break-up in March 2018 that only lasted a few weeks. Gigi and Zayn celebrated Eid al-Adha 2018, one of the holiest Muslim holidays, with their families.
Gigi posted on her Instagram story this love-filled photo of Zayn with his younger sister Waliyha Azad:+ +
Waliyha posted the same holiday photo on her own Instagram story. But Zayn did not post any photos.
Gigi’s and model sister Bella Hadid’s father and her mother Yolanda Hadid’s ex-husband Mohamed Hadid is a Palestinian-American real estate developer. Gigi and Bella have rarely spoken about their religious upbringing. In an interview with Porter magazine in 2017, Bella said their father “was always religious, and he always prayed with us,” adding, “I am proud to be a Muslim.”+ +
Zayn told the London Evening Standard in an interview, “I’m not currently practising but I was raised in the Islamic faith, so it will always be with me, and I identify a lot with the culture. But I’m just me. I don’t want to be defined by my religion or my cultural background.”
Eid al-Adha is celebrated at the end of an annual Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca. The holiday is marked by prayers, gifts and family meals.
