Mom knows best! Yolanda Foster is weighing in about her daughter Gigi Hadid’s new relationship with former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, and it seems that she approves.

“Gigi’s 20 years old, loving life, shopping like she should,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 51, told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday, Dec. 3. “I haven’t met him yet, so I can’t say anything about him.”

As Us Weekly previously confirmed, the supermodel, 20, and the British heartthrob, 22, are officially dating. The two were spotted getting cozy in West Hollywood on Sunday, Nov. 22, after Hadid, who split from Joe Jonas earlier last month, attended the 2015 American Music Awards on Sunday, Nov. 22.

“They seem equally super into each other, texting each other all the time,” a source told Us at the time.

The former boy bander also cheered Foster’s daughter on as she made her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show debut on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

“He thinks she’s so hot,” the insider revealed. “He thinks she’s sweet, too. She talks about her mom a lot and her family, and he likes that.”

Meanwhile, Foster — who split from her husband of four years, David Foster, on Tuesday, Dec. 1 — told Us that she is taking things day by day when it comes to her own life.

“I spend most of my days in bed,” Foster, who has been battling Lyme disease since 2012, told Us. “I hope to be moving forward to a brighter future and I’m just trying to get through it one day at a time.”
