Gigi Hadid's new romance with Zayn Malik continues to land in the headlines, and now her mother Yolanda Foster has spoken out about it.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the premiere of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills on Thursday, the 51-year-old confessed that she had yet to be introduced to her daughter's new beau, but that Gigi was enjoying life.
'I haven't met him yet,' she said when asked for her thoughts on the former One Direction singer. 'Gigi's 20 years old, loving life, shopping like she should. I haven't met him yet, so I can't say anything about it.'
Gigi's new relationship with Zayn has landed in headlines as of late.
The pair were spotted holding hands as they left trendy club The Nice Guy in West Hollywood in the early hours of Sunday morning not long after her split from Joe Jonas.
The former couple called it quits last month.

Gigi's new romance has prompted a lot of talk, and on Monday the model appeared to set the record straight in a series tweets – which have since been deleted - hitting back at claims that her romance with the singer is 'fake'.
She said: 'Sometimes life just happens.. For whatever reason in whatever timing. And sometimes it doesn't make sense till it does. That's it.'
'If there was a real way to sit with each one of you and tell you my side of things, I would,’ she continued. ‘But there's not, so I won't. I've found the only way to happiness is by living as though the microscope isn't there.'
Meanwhile, not unlike Gigi, Yolanda's personal life has come into focus.
The reality star and her husband David recently announced in a joint statement that they had decided to end their marriage.
'Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways,' the couple told People magazine. 'We've shared 9 beautiful and joyous years together.
‘During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.'
And the statement concluded: 'We are grateful for the years we've spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best. I hope that we can pave the road ahead of us with all we've learned and with the love and respect we will always have for one another.'
