Well, she didn’t exactly refuse. But she kind of did at the same time.
So, what happened?
While most proposal turn-downs can completely destroy a relationship, Zayn and Gigi are a different case.
The 24-year-old singer and 21-year-old model’s relationship has only gotten better since then, believe it or not.
Gigi had completely logical reasons to turn down the marriage, too.
She will undoubtedly marry Zayn, but no need to rush it. They’re both so occupied and busy, there’s no need to waste more energy on the wedding. It’s better to just wait.
The former 1D singer said that Gigi’s reasoning was perfectly reasonable. He even gave her a ring called the promise ring, to show how much the relationship actually means to him. Aww, so cute!
On January 17, Gigi was spotted in New York City with a gold ring on the finger where you usually put an engagement ring. After this happened, Zayn tattooed the word ‘LOVE’ on his knuckles.
Gigi also posted a really cute happy birthday message for Zayn’s 24th, with the caption: “Happy birthday my handsome! so lucky to know and love a soul like yours… wishing you the best year ever!!!”
