Sniff! However, Zayn wasn’t the only member of his family to pay tribute to his grandmother online as his sis Waliyha took to Instagram and posted:
R.I.P to my grandma I love you more than anything in the world my angel├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬Åit was so hard to see you struggle the way you have been├░┼╕╦£┬Ñbut I know your in a better place now with my granddad he’ll be so happy to see you after so many years├░┼╕╦£ΓÇ¥├ó┬¥┬ñ├»┬╕┬ÅA photo posted by @waliyha.azad on Jan 5, 2016 at 4:15pm PST
Since the news of his grandma’s passing broke, many 1D fans were able to get #ZaynStayStrong trending on the social media site.
How sweet! Other followers took to Twitter to send their regards (below) to Gigi Hadid‘s boyfriend.
Our hearts go out to Zayn during this trying time.
