Zayn Malik has moved on his love life after splitting with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. The former One Direction star has fallen completely in love with Victoria's Secret model Gigi Hadid.

"Zayn has had his eye on Gigi for a while, he's absolutely smitten with her good looks," a source told Hollywood Life. "He was just waiting for the right moment, until she was single, to really make his move. But he's been wanting to get a chance to date her for quite a while."

"Zayn's been dating lots of girls, but he would definitely prioritize Gigi and commit to her, if she wanted the same thing," the insider added.

Rumours that the two are romantically involved started after the 22-year-old singer and the 20-year-old model were spotted in the same car following American Music Awards after party at Los Angeles' The Nice Guy club on 24 November. Following that on 28 November, the new pair left the same club, hand in hand, confirming the budding relationship.

Malik was previously in a long-term relationship with Edwards. The two started dating in December 2011 after meeting on the sets of The X Factor.
