We think Zayn Malik is just about the most perfect specimen of manhood we have ever seen, so we’re slightly non plussed by reports that he’s been hitting the gym in a big way, trying to improve his physique.
The One Direction star lost a lot of weight during the first few months of his recent Take Me Home tour, after the band hired a personal trainer to travel around Europe and America with their entourage, to help them get in shape.
Malik cut junk food and alcohol out of his diet almost entirely and definitely shed some pounds, but insiders say now he’s keen to add some more muscle to the mix.
The Little Things singer got engaged last month to his long term girlfriend Perrie Edwards and the pair are said to be planning a date for their wedding. However a source claims that Zayn is keen to change his appearance for the big day and wants to bulk up before he dons his morning suit and watches Edwards walk down the aisle.
Ramzy Khachnik, who is the boss of Zayn’s trainer Mark Jarvis is quoted by Yahoo Omg! as saying that while at first Zayn shied away from the weights sessions, now he’s ‘engaged’ and determined to bulk up. He apparently explained:
“At first, Zayn wasn’t interested, but now he’s engaged he wants to look his best.
“He can see how much the others bodies have changed, so he’s really got into it. There’s a big difference in his arms now. The fact that he’s happy and engaged has encouraged him to train and look better.”
The pair looked incredibly loved up when they appeared together at 1D’s premiere after party last month, however in interviews Zayn has stayed very coy about the engagement and as you can see from this video, he clearly doesn’t like talking about Perrie in public, although he did defend their engagement and her lack of presence in his movie last week
Insiders say that despite Zayn’s dedication, Perrie is still finding her relationship with the hunk hard. She working on her trust and security issues but it’s claimed that she still finds it difficult to cope with his legions of fans, the constant temptation that surrounds Malik and the changes in her man over the past year.
As the couple dealt with yet another cheating scandal last week, an insider said:
“Perrie’s got to be a strong, secure character to accept that he’s adored by thousands of fans, it isn’t easy for her. [The 1D mania effect] is unbelievably crazy with them. Zayn has changed dramatically.”
Her insecurity can’t be helped either by the fact that apparently her Little Mix bandmates would prefer that she was single!
Zayn and Perrie will be spending as much time as possible together this month, before he hits the road again. One Direction will jet to Australia at the end of this month for the remaining concerts on their tour and will be away from home until November, at which point they’ll be working towards the launch of their third album.
They don’t get much time to relax that’s for sure.
