Looks like things may be back on for Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik, as the two were recently spotted out arm-and-arm in New York City. 
The on-and-off-(and on?)-again couple were spotted by the paparazzi on Saturday night in complementary green outfits, presumably to celebrate Malik’s 28th birthday. They were joined by Hadid’s sister, Bella, and brother Anwar's girlfriend, Dua Lipa.
Fans speculated that the former couple would get back together in 2020, after Hadid’s social media activity involved a special chicken pasta recipe from Malik's mother, Trisha. Hadid and Malik first started dating back in 2016 and called it quits two years later, though they did get back together a few months later. 
Hadid and Malik parted ways again in early 2019, and soon after Hadid started dating Bachelorette alum Tyler Cameron. That fizzled out and in November 2019, E! reported that Hadid and Malik were talking again.
Not a huge surprise, though. Malik did send out a pretty random tweet to Hadid earlier that year in March saying, “love you.” No context. No punctuation. Nothing. But the message was clear — he still had feelings for his ex. It may have taken Hadid a minute to circle back around, but from the looks of their reunion on Saturday, she’s still got feelings for Malik, too.
For fans sake, though, let’s hope they stay together this time, because reactions to the news varied.
Some aren’t even convinced they actually ever broke up in the first place. 
Guess we’ll just have to stay tuned for an official “we’re back together” celebratory chicken dinner announcement.
