The model took to Instagram this morning (January 12) to wish her boyfriend “the best year ever” on his 24th birthday. Her sweet message accompanied a black-and-white photo of Zayn brooding on a balcony, daydreaming about all the shoes he’ll design this year. Or something.
Meanwhile, One Direction fans are freaking the hell out over another birthday message for Z: a tweet from his former 1D bandmate Liam Payne, who sent love and well wishes for his “bro.”
Zayn had a pretty damn fine year as a 23-year-old — it was the year his romance with Gigi really sparked up, the year his first solo album and autobiography were released, and the year he became a budding fashion maven who graced countless mag covers. Who knows what 24 will have in store?
For now, though, it looks like Zayn’s just focused on eating a lot of candy. Hey, if you can’t treat yourself on your birthday, then when can you?
