They first split in March after two years together, but Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik appear to be stronger than ever. The A-list couple, who have rekindled their romance in recent months, have holidayed together and spent Eid together since reuniting this summer. And, according to British-Pakistani singer Malik, his on-off love has provided invaluable support throughout their relationship.

The former One Directioner opened up about the half-Palestinian model to British Vogue, telling the publication “everything is great”. The couple have kept their romance mostly private this year, though have started sharing more social media posts featuring the other in recent months. However, it’s behind-the-scenes where Hadid truly bolsters Malik, with the 25-year-old revealing “she’s super-organized and I’m really not”. “It helps that she can get things together for me a little bit,” said the star in the interview, which will be published in December according to the Daily Mail. “I lean on her a lot.”

Three months after their confirmed split, the duo stoked rumors they had reconciled, with Hadid using her Instagram account to upload several snapshots with Malik. Then, in July, the model used the social media platform to embrace her sunspots in a close-up selfie of her makeup-free face, writing “my baby says he likes my sunspots”. It was one of the first public confirmations from Hadid that the couple had reignited their romance. They have gone on to share several cozy snapshots, and Hadid has been pictured on occasion sporting a necklace spelling out “Zayn”. Here’s wishing the twosome many more happy years ahead.
