Despite having one of the more adorable celebrity romances—countless adorable social media posts, thoughtful birthday celebrations and championing each other’s careers under their belt—Gigi and Zayn have officially ended their two-year relationship. Yes, it was only two years, but it felt like an eternity. Here’s hoping they are given the space to get over the breakup in private because they genuinely seem pretty down to earth, as evidenced most notably when Zayn spoke out about being uncomfortable with the moniker “power couple”;
“But I can understand how it can look, that you’ve got these two people in a ‘power couple,'” he said in an interview with the Evening Standard. “That’s not something I want to be a part of. I’m with her because I like her, and I hope she’s with me because she likes me.”
Considering one is an international supermodel and the other is a former member of fangirl obsession One Direction, it’s no surprise the lovebirds were constantly followed by paparazzi. But as Zayn revealed, his typical day with Gigi behind closed doors was totally normal. “When we come home, we don’t really talk about that sh*t,” he said. “We just spend time together as a normal couple, cook food, watch TV, have a laugh.”
Sounds like the kind of relationship we share with our SOs, actually. Sending them good vibes during this tough time.
