During an interview with Westwood One's Zach Sang and the Gang radio show, the former One Direction member confirmed that he was dating the 20-year-old model.

"Yeah, that was cool," he answered. "That was something different -- and yeah, we enjoyed it. It was fun. We had a lot of fun on set."

"No one easier to make out with than your own girlfriend, right?" Jill followed up.

Further confirming his romance, Malik replied with a laugh, "Exactly. I like what you've done there."

The 23-year-old singer also spilled some details on his upcoming album. His first solo studio project will be released on the one-year anniversary of when he left One Direction, March 25, but he insisted that wasn't planned. "It just happens to coincide," he said. "Maybe it's a sign."

In November, ET sat down with the boy band, who were quite candid as to why Malik decided to leave the band. "I think in any field of work when you lose someone on your team, obviously it's hard, but the positive take on the situation is we felt we definitely got closer as a group," Louis Tomlinson said. "Zayn did have different musical tastes, so that's fine."
