Gigi Hadid Had No Chill During Her First Date with Zayn Malik
On Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Hadid painted a picture of her first date with Malik for Ellen DeGeneres. The 21-year-old model said that she and Malik met at a friend’s birthday party a few years ago. She was into him and heard that he was coming to New York for the 2016 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, so when he didn’t show up to the show, she searched for him at the show’s after-party. He didn’t show up to that either.
Still, somehow, they miraculously had their first date a week later.
“We played it cool for about 10 minutes. Then I was like, ‘You’re really cute,'” said Hadid. “We connected really quickly. We kind of have the same sense of humor, and just started sharing videos.”
These videos included those of Noah Ritter, a recurring child guest on DeGeneres’s show. After learning that Hadid was a fan of his, Ritter made a special video for her, which you can see in the clip of the video from the episode at the top of the page.
Hadid’s episode of Ellen airs on Friday, Feb. 10, 2017.
