Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid have been pretty quiet when discussing their relationship, despite their super couple-y social media presence. But now Zayn has opened up about why he and his supermodel girlfriend work so well.

Speaking with Elle UK, the Pillowtalk singer admitted that he likes an intellectual partner, saying, ‘She’s super-intelligent, I think that’s why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other.’

Gigi and Zayn were said to have split earlier this year, with E! News reporting that the two had called it quits after seven months of dating. However, many sources also noted that ‘they can likely get back together tomorrow’, and it seems that’s exactly what happened.

After a brief hiatus, the 23-year-old singer and 21-year-old model resumed dating, and have been spotted together frequently since.

🙁 we love you always chub 👼🏼🐈
