Twitterati had a laugh when they came to know about super model Gigi Hadid’s general knowlege, especially in Geography.
The supermodel recently talked to Gulf News and said that her boyfriend Zayn Malik is ‘half Middle Eastern’.
“I especially love it when you meet other Arabs,” she says, perking up with the topic. “There’s such a sense of family regardless of whether you are blood related or not anywhere in the world. When someone comes up to me and they tell me, ‘I’m Palestinian’ and we make a connection, it’s beautiful.
“My boyfriend is also half Middle Eastern. It’s just a connection that you make that’s really cool. It’s hard to explain but you feel like you’re amongst [your] people.”
It must be noted that singer Zayn Malik’s father, Yaser Malik, is British Pakistani, and his mother, Tricia Brannan Malik, is English, and of part Irish descent.
