Could Zayn Malik be ready for a comeback?

In a “Call Her Daddy” podcast episode slated to air on Wednesday, the One Direction alum made a rare comment regarding parenting.

“Since I’ve had my daughter, the main thing on my mind is trying to be a good example to her,” Malik, who has a 2-year-old daughter with model Gigi Hadid, said in an Instagram teaser video.

In his first interview in six years, he told host Alex Cooper, “That’s why I’m even doing this interview, you know?” I used to get a lot of anxiety around having a conversation like this. And I want her to be able to look at me and be like, ‘Yo, my dad’s doing this.’”

As he transitioned into his role as a dad, he said, “I keep being told I’m telling dad jokes. And I’m leaning into it. I’m just like, ‘It’s OK. It’s cool.’ People just look at me like I’m a weirdo, and I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’m a dad, I’m allowed to tell these jokes now.’”

The “Pillowtalk” singer, 30, then acknowledged that his perspective on life has evolved since he and Hadid, 28, welcomed Khai in September 2020.

“There’s a certain point in adult life where everything is vague and gray and boring and she’s brought that color back for me for sure.”

The “Better” singer and Hadid initially met at Victoria’s Secret party in 2015. And for almost six years, the pair dated on and off.

Hadid was romantically linked to race car driver Lewis Hamilton and “Bachelorette” alum Tyler Cameron during their time apart.

After reuniting in 2020, the couple welcomed Khai in September. However, they called it quits in October 2021 following an altercation with Gigi’s mother, Yolanda Hadid.

At the time, the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star claimed Malik shoved her. Despite his denial and plea of no contest to the charges, Malik was sentenced to nearly a year of probation as well as domestic violence and anger management programs.

Since then, the two have fully focused on co-parenting their daughter.
