Zayn Malik’s younger sister Safaa Malik has tied the knot in Bradford, but the One Direction star was nowhere to be seen in photos shared online.
The 17-year-old married her boyfriend Martin in a traditional Nikkah ceremony, and her mum Trisha, dad Yaser, and sisters Doniya, 28, and Waliyha, 21, were all in attendance.
Trisha posted a series of happy photos from the day on Instagram, but Zayn was noticeably absent from the photos.
The proud mum captioned the post: “My baby girls big day.” [sic]
Despite Zayn’s apparent absence, the former 1D star’s ex-girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, showed her support for Safaa by liking the photos that were posted on Instagram.
Safaa, who has a massive 450,000 followers on Instagram, is the youngest member of the Malik family – and is still in school.
After sharing photos from their wedding, the newlyweds received a lot of negative comments suggesting they were too young to get married.
After receiving a message of support on Instagram, Safaa’s new husband wrote on Instagram: “Thanks to all of you who support us. We so appreciate that.”
“But bullying us it’s not good guys. Stop it Saffy reading all your comments!!!”
