Happy Birthday, Zayn Malik! The former One Direction member turned 25 on Friday and was shown lots of love from fans and fellow celebrities.
One of the best birthday messages came from Canada’s Ryan Reynolds – or should we say Wade from “Deadpool”.
Malik took to Instagram to share the hilarious video that was sent to him for his birthday, showing Reynolds in what seemed to be him on the set of “Deadpool 2” in full costume.
“Zayn, it’s Wade, don’t hang up. I just want to wish you a very happy birthday again,” Reynolds said.
“I also want to apologize for jumping out of the cake like that. I didn’t realize it was the middle of the night, I had no idea I was in the middle of your bedroom. I want to thank your security who were very, very gentle and creative with the taser,” Reynolds hilariously continued, acting as Wade.
“So anyway, happy birthday to you and Mr. Tim Horton. You share your birthday with a very special Canadian who’s very near and dear to my heart.”
In the past, Reynolds has shared his love for Malik – and his hair – on social media, so his birthday message was the icing on the cake.
Malik was also shown lots of love from his girlfriend, Gigi Hadid, who posted an album of photos and videos of him on Instagram.
“Love this man more than I could ever put into words, & am inspired by his drive to be and do better everyday ✨ cheers to YOUR YEAR my @zayn – happiest happiest birthday & 25th year of life !! I’m proud to be by your side x,” she captioned the post.
Even former bandmate Liam Payne gave the birthday boy a shoutout on Twitter.
Of course, Malik’s loyal fan base celebrated his birthday on social media and it didn’t go unnoticed by the singer.
