Zayn Malik is known for his dedication to being a father to his two-year-old daughter, Khai (Picture: Getty / Instagram / Gigi Hadid). Recently, Zayn’s mother shared why he has chosen to remain unmarried.
Despite rumors of a few outings with musician Selena Gomez @selenagomez #MyMindAndMe, the 30-year-old former One Direction star has not pursued any serious relationships since his split from ex-girlfriend Gigi Hadid in 2021. Zayn is now prioritizing the upbringing of his daughter rather than seeking romantic companionship.
According to his mother, Trisha, Zayn and Gigi are “wonderful parents” to their daughter Khai, who will be turning three in September. Trisha praised her son for being a devoted and loving father, stating that it brings him immense joy.
It is not due to a lack of interest from potential partners that Zayn remains single. In fact, Trisha mentioned that many women (Women apparel Here) find him intriguing, which is not surprising.

Trisha revealed that Zayn is currently not interested in dating and is solely focused on Khai and his career. She acknowledged that Zayn and Gigi are successfully co-parenting and praised Gigi for her down-to-earth nature.
While expressing her fondness for Gigi, Trisha added, “It’s unfortunate that things didn’t work out for them, but that’s life,” in an interview with the Mail Online. Trisha, who still resides in Bradford, Zayn’s hometown, plans to visit her granddaughter next month to celebrate her birthday.
Zayn’s daughter will be turning three soon, and Gigi recently shared adorable photos of the toddler (Picture: Instagram/Gigi Hadid). Zayn and Khai visited the UK recently to visit his mother after she underwent a medical procedure.
Zayn and Gigi have made a conscious effort to keep their daughter out of the public eye. However, Gigi shared rare photos of their two-year-old daughter in August, causing fans to marvel at how much she has grown. While ensuring Khai’s face remained unseen, Gigi shared a series of pictures of summer moments (Summer is Here SALE), including Khai picking blueberries and sitting on a boat in a lake.
Zayn expressed his pride in his daughter during his first interview in six years, revealing that since becoming a father, she has become his main priority. He openly embraces his new role as a dad, even leaning into telling dad jokes, stating, “People just look at me like I’m a weirdo, and I’m like, ‘Well, I’m a dad now, so I’m allowed to tell these jokes!'”
