Behold the PDA we've all been waiting for! 

While rumors have been swirling for weeks of Gigi Hadid's suspected new romance with former One Direction crooner, Zayn Malik, here is the first public proof that the blond beauty has reeled in a new dark-haired hottie. Joe Jonas who? 

The 20-year-old runway stunner exited The Nice Guy—the pair's frequented Los Angeles late-night spot—around 2:30am holding Malik's hand as they looked down and away from the glare of the cameras. 

The duo coordinated in dark ensembles, Hadid dressed in a black crop top, matching leather motorcycle jacket and fitted dark-wash jeans. Similarly, the silver-tressed 22-year-old rocked a simple black button-down t-shirt and matching distressed jeans. They do make one chic couple.

During their last visit to the Los Angeles Italian eatery, the twosome packed on some subtle PDA inside while sitting next to each other.  

"Gigi and Zayn couldn't keep their hands off each other," a source described to E! News. "They were holding hands under the table, whispering in each others' ears, and Zayn [was] holding Gigi's leg. Gigi was so attached to him that she even followed Zayn outside to the patio during a smoke break."

While a second source told E! they "looked like a couple, laughing having a good time" during their last trip to The Nice Guy, onlookers shouldn't get their hopes up too quickly  for Hadid and her new flame—after all, she just broke up with ex-boyfriend Jonas less than a month ago. 

"They are just friends and are casually hanging out," a source told E! News. "She is not looking to jump into another relationship so soon. Gigi is a relationship-type kinda girl, but she wants to just have some fun and take time for herself and her career at the moment."

From the looks of those interlaced hands, Hadid may have been struck by Cupid's arrow earlier than she expected.
