There may be one more swift-ish summer engagement if Zayn Malik has his way, or so rumor has it. The Daily Star, via The Sun, is reporting that the singer—who just reconciled with his girlfriend of two years, Gigi Hadid, in April after splitting in March—really, really wants to propose to Hadid “to prove his love,” a source told The Daily Star’s James Ingham. “He’s head over heels in love and wants to prove to the world he’s committed and their relationship is the real deal.” Apparently Malik “has suggested a secret wedding with no guests.”

Yes, this is the same guy who said in a June interview he refused to define his relationship with Hadid because he’s an adult, and “we don’t need to put a label on it, make it something for people’s expectations.”
And yes, this is the same guy still who said in an interview in April that he saw his then-ex Hadid as someone “I was aspiring to be in love with…for the rest of my life and the rest of theirs.” Malik has made that kind of commitment before, getting engaged to his last girlfriend Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards. (That did not end well, as he dumped her over text message, she said, though he denied it. They dated for four years and were engaged for two.)
But alas, the 23-year-old model was apparently not into getting married to her 25-year-old boyfriend right now, and Malik “conceded he will have to wait” after bringing it up with her, the source said. The model “has made it clear they are not ready to get engaged just yet.” Maybe Malik can prove his love to the world by just publicly DTRing their relationship and calling Hadid his girlfriend in an Instagram instead.
