Malik and Hadid started dating in 2015 and expanded their family five years later. “From 21 to 27, I was with Gi, and we had a kid, and I didn’t really take much time to get to know myself,” he told the magazine.

During his interview with Nylon, Malik noted that his childhood played a role in how he dove into dating.

“I lived a very chill life in Bradford. I never really had a girlfriend. My parents were kind of old-school, so I never brought a girlfriend home or anything,” he noted. “When I got the chance to do that, I jumped straight in, two feet first, and was like, ‘I’m going to have a girlfriend, and she’s going to live with me. This makes me a grown man.’”

Malik continued: “It’s probably wise to take your time before you fully invest in another human being as a lifelong partner.”
