Zayn Malik Opens Up About Expecting A Child With Gigi Hadid

Zayn Malik Has Revealed How He Feels About Expecting A Child With Girlfriend, Gigi Hadid

It's been about two weeks since Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik broke the internet with their expected baby news. And now, Zayn has revealed how he feels about the couple's baby news.

A close source to the former One Direction star announced that Zayn, much like Gigi, "couldn't be more thrilled about the news".

Another source close to the 27-year-old Bradford native told Cosmopolitan that despite the couple having their issues in the past. The "PillowTalk" singer has always "has always been so into Gigi and she's always been such a big part of his life... Even when there were times that they weren't a couple, the love was still very much there," explained the source.

The announcements come after an image of Zayn's latest tattoo triggered rumors of a potential engagement to the Palestinian American model.

The photo of Zayn's latest ink was shared by jeweler George Khalife, who recently sent the couple some evil eye bracelets.

Zayn's tattoo can be seen on his left forearm and features Kahlil Gibran's poem, "On Marriage".

The famous poem by the late Lebanese-American poet and writer reads as follows:

"Then Almitra spoke again and said, And what of Marriage, master?
And he answered saying: You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore.
You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Ay, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God.
But let there be spaces in your togetherness,
And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:
Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup.
Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of your be alone,
Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And 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."
