Bella, for her part, wore rust-colored pants, a patterned crop top and a matching face mask.

In January 2020, a source told HollywoodLife about how Bella supports Gigi and Zayn’s reunion. “Bella couldn’t be happier to see how happy Gigi is with Zayn,” the insider said. “The only thing that matters to Bella is to see her sister happy and if Zayn makes Gigi happy, then Bella completely supports them dating again.”
The source also talked about how Zayn was welcomed back into the family during Bella and Gigi’s mom Yolanda’s birthday at the time. “It seemed very natural for Zayn to join their family for Yolanda’s birthday. They all had a really good time together and Zayn gets along with their family really well,” the insider said. before noting that Bella’s focus is on “how happy Gigi was. That’s the most important thing to Bella, and nothing else matters.”
