Gigi Hadid Kicked Off Her 21st Birthday Weekend With Zayn

Gigi Hadid proved once again she's just a laid-back California girl at heart. The model turned 21 on Saturday and started her celebrations at the beach in Malibu. It was a real friends-and-family affair on the quiet and secluded seaside spot. Boyfriend Zayn shared photos of the outing on Instagram. He snapped pics of the birthday girl and her sister Bella walking to the sea.
