Trisha hopes the pair will mover closer to her once they have kids. She told BBC: ‘They’re thinking of the end of next year, although no date has yet been set yet. I will cook Christmas dinner. Perrie and her mother will be there and we’ll open presents, play games and stuff our faces.
If they have children I wouldn’t like to be so far away from them. I would really like to still be part of their lives.. On the morning of the X Factor audition Zayn didn’t want to go. He chickened out, saying: ‘Can’t I just leave it?’.
He hated dancing but loved singing. He used to sing until three o’clock in the morning and I often used to have to ask him to turn it down.’ Whenever I took him out, as a toddler, little old ladies would say: ‘Oh, he’s cute, he’s going to break a few hearts.
He went to Australia recently and I didn’t see him for almost three months. It’s sad but the family had to check on the internet to see where he was.. I don’t have a Twitter account as I don’t even understand it. Me and Zayn’s dad stopped looking at social media because he (Zayn’s dad) used to get upset about what people had written.
It’s like a kick in the gut to read things that are, most of the time, not even true.’ She married a British Pakistani, Yasser, and converted to Islam: ‘I’ve always tried to learn as much as I can about my husband’s religion and culture. I made sure the children went to the mosque. Zayn has read the Koran three times.
I don’t get introduced as Trisha Malik but as Zayn’s mum. I still shop in my local supermarket and go to the discount store for a pair of shoes. We never had enough money to buy our own house, We always lived in rented accommodation, so Zayn knew how very important it was for me to have my own place’.
Until recently, Trisha worked as a halal chef in the kitchen of a local primary school, making meals for Muslim children. On Zayn’s advice she gave up her job. ‘Zayn said ‘you don’t have to do this anymore’. Instead, he puts my wage into my bank’.
None of the sisters will follow Zayn’s footsteps into a music career. He’ll tease his sisters, he’ll hug them and they might have an argument like brothers and sisters do. He spoils the younger one.’
