Are Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid official? The former One Directioner and superstar model appear highly cuddly in a new Instagram photo, posted by Malik on Sunday (Dec. 20).

Malik's black-and-white shot of a Polaroid in which Hadid is caressing his beard has 709,000 likes on Instagram and 105,000 comments. As pop fans know, Malik was engaged to Perrie Edwards of Little Mix before the pair called it off earlier this year.

It's been nine months since Zayn left 1D, but he's been working on solo music for an early 2016 release. Click here for more details.
