Rumours about Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid getting engaged in secret have been doing the rounds for months now, and interest grew again this week when the model was seen wearing a ring on her wedding finger.

Now Zayn has emerged with a new tattoo on his right hand, and it’s leading some to question whether it’s his own celebration of their commitment.

The fresh ink is the word ‘love’ written in cursive on the top of his hand just below the fingers, and was spotted for the first time when he was seen out in New York this week.

A tattoo certainly would be a very Zayn Malik way to show his commitment to Gigi, and given the singer’s battles with anxiety, we wouldn’t be surprised if the couple opted to make their engagement known only to a handful of friends and family to avoid increased public attention.

But with a rocky patch just a few months behind them, and given their tender ages – Gigi is just 21 and Zayn is 24 – may just be a fantasy cooked up by over excited fans. We’ll await further information before sending our congratulations.
