Zayn Malik is certainly smitten with girlfriend Gigi Hadid!
The former One Direction member landed the cover of the September issue of Elle UK and undeniably channeled his lady in order to pull out some killer modeling skills. How FABOOSH!

However, it isn't the blonde beauty's expertise in front of the camera that the PILLOWTALK singer loves. In fact, the X Factor alum couldn't help but gush about Miz Hadid's intellect during his interview. Aww!
For his candid sit down, the 23-year-old dished:
"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."
Tissues, anyone? Regardless, this isn't the first time Malik has teased his love for the supermodel's mind.
As you may recall, the LIKE I WOULD crooner told Billboard he required "intellectual conversation" when it came to the women he dated. Well that's fair!
Nonetheless, it appears Zayn's mother Tricia and sisters Doniya, Waliyha, and Safaa are the ones who are teaching him how to be respectful to women. He continued:
"I enjoyed the womanly influence. I have a lot of respect for women because of them. They are so strong, powerful and do everything themselves… When I go back to Bradford they treat me exactly the same. It's why I only ever go back for a few days, otherwise they have me taking out the bins."
We can only imagine Gigi is grateful for Zayn's family too. LOLz!
Still, Yolanda Hadid's daughter has proven to be a loyal GF as she stood by her man during his recent bout of anxiety. On his canceled gig at the Capital FM Summertime Ball, Zayn revealed:
"I just don't have it in me to feel fully secure in anything I do. I always strive towards something better. It's why I think sometimes I come across the wrong way, a bit distant. I'm just stressed out trying to control how I'm perceived. I think about things a lot."
Poor thing! Nonetheless, we think Mr. Malik is TOTALLY slaying the game.
Keep doing you, man.
