Zayn Malik turned 23 years old yesterday (HOW? HOW IS HE TWENTY? THREE?) and walking pal Gigi Hadid (what? All they ever seem to do is strut around various streets - look we even made an entire feature about it) joined the legions of fans wishing him a happy birthday.

Posting a snap of what we presume is her own neck/torso region with a 'Z' necklace, Gigi captioned the pic 'ZDAY'. We see what she did there. We think. 

So yeah, we think it's probably a birthday message, but also what's wrong with a bit of cake and some balloons? Thoughts, feelings and emotions over @Sugarscape on Twitz, pls. 

What do you think?
