Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik have reportedly taken a big step in their relationship by moving in together.
According to a new report, Gigi Hadid and her boyfriend, who have been dating for about nine months, have moved into his Los Angeles home.
“Zayn and [Gigi Hadid] have moved in together in LA and he’s busy furnishing and buying paintings to change it up and make it more of a couple’s pad,” a source told the Sun on July 31.
As Gigi Hadid fans surely know, the 21-year-old model’s family, including her mother, Yolanda Foster, formerly of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and siblings, Bella and Anwar Hadid, spend the majority of their time in Los Angeles but when it comes to work, Gigi Hadid is also required to be in the Big Apple.

While Gigi Hadid and the former One Direction singer continue to spend time together in New York City, where Hadid has an apartment, the source claimed Gigi Hadid now has free reign of Malik’s west coast home.
“They cherish every moment together and make sure they’re never apart for longer than 10 days so it made sense for her to move in officially,” the source explained.
The source went on to reveal that Malik appreciates Gigi Hadid and their relationship much more after Hadid openly showed her support for him following his June anxiety reveal. As fans will recall, Malik took to Twitter in mid-June, where he revealed that he had canceled a performance in the U.K., which was supposed to be his first solo performance in his home country, due to what he claimed was the worst anxiety of his carer.
“He appreciates her so much more after her support when he had to pull out of the Capital FM Summertime Ball with anxiety. Zayn sees how much [Gigi Hadid] is there for him. They’re mutually passionately in love,” the source explained.

Prior to Malik’s anxiety reveal, he and Gigi Hadid temporarily split. As reports stated at the time, Gigi Hadid and Malik were on an off for weeks before calling it quits in early June, only to get back together just weeks later.
“Things are back to normal with them,” a source close to Malik told E! News shortly after their reunion. “They got through a rough patch that Zayn was facing personally and it started to put a dark cloud on their relationship. [Gigi Hadid] was there for him when he needed her the most and that brought them closer than ever.”
“They have been spending some alone time together lately without the media seeing them,” the source continued. “Zayn is feeling better with the help of Gigi and many other close people in his life. It’s a work in progress for him.”
After Malik opened up about his struggles on Twitter, Gigi Hadid expressed her support for the singer in an emotional Twitter post of her own and was later seen in London by her boyfriend’s side.
Since Malik’s concert cancellation, the singer has “opened up to [Gigi Hadid] about his anxiety” and while the pair has “been through a lot these past few months,” the E! News source claimed they are “really trying to communicate better going forward.”
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik began dating in November after being spotted together after the American Music Awards, and ever since, they have been frequently seen around the globe.
