Gigi Hadid And Zayn Just Took A Huge Step Forward In Their Relationship

Oh, damn… we're THERE? We're THERE, Zigi? THIS IS SERIOUS.

Gigi Hadid turned 21 on Saturday and spent the weekend with her family, galloping along the beach in Malibu like a beautiful antelope -- if antelopes were allowed to model underwear for a living (maybe someday).

Also in attendance was Gigi's boyfriend, Zayn Malik, and his WHOLE FREAKING FAMILY, YOU GUYS.

Zayn shared a photo on Instagram of himself on the beach with his mother, Trisha, and his sisters, Doniya, Waliyha and Safaa.

The 23-year-old also posted a pic of a quick hike he took up some rocks with Gigi and her sister, Bella.

From Gigi's Insta, it appears the joint family birthday beach trip went well, as she captioned a picture of Bella, “best birthday.”

Before you get carried away, let's realize it doesn't make sense to read too much into the meet-the-parents excitement -- except GIGI HADID AND ZAYN ARE BASICALLY ENGAGED.

THEY HAVE BASICALLY BEEN MARRIED FOR 40 YEARS.  THEY ARE BASICALLY DYING ARM-IN-ARM NEXT TO ONE ANOTHER LIKE THE OLD COUPLE IN THE SECOND HALF OF “TITANIC.”
