It was only last week that Gigi Hadid's mum Yolanda Foster posted a photo of her eldest daughter and boyfriend Zayn Malik snuggling up at home, describing him as 'family'.

In fact, over the last two years or so the young couple have been spending a lot of their time in the Hadid and Malik homes.

Gigi revealed that Zayn's mum's house was her 'favourite restaurant in the world' and that the 24 year-old British singer has gifted her the joy of baked beans (you're welcome, rest of the world).

The 22 year-old model's mum posted a snap of herself with the couple, and Bradford-living Trisha apparently celebrating the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

Eid al-Adha is one of the holy days of Islam that celebrates Ibrahim's (Abraham) willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac and the end of the pilgrimage that many Muslims make to Mecca. The day is celebrated with prayer, food and gifts with family and friends.

Zayn's dad is British-Pakistani and his mother converted to Islam when she met him.

Trisha told the BBC, 'I've always tried to learn as much as I can about my husband's religion and culture'.

'I made sure the children went to the mosque. Zayn has read the Koran three times.'

Similarly it is Gigi's father that introduced Islam to the family. Whilst Yolanda is a dutch-born American, Mohamed Hadid is Palestinian-American. Though he doesn't consider himself a 'devout Muslim', he said in an interview in 2010 that he is 'very proud of his heritage' and does not drink or smoke and fasts during Ramadan.

Gigi's sister Bella has explained that she is 'proud to be a Muslim'.

Both Yolanda and Trisha posted photos of the young pair, with Yolanda captioning her post, 'Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating…….'

Trisha posted and extra snap that seemed to show a celebratory haircut of her son.

Unless he's wearing a bald cap, it looks like the ex One Direction singer has taken a razor to that scalp of his.

If we're honest, we a re slightly surprised that both his mum and his girlfriend went along with that 'do. Each to their own we guess.
