Gigi Hadid recently showed off her jaw-dropping physique in this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and it turns out that her rumored boyfriend, Zayn Malik, was a fan of her super sexy photospread.

"He obviously liked the pictures," Hadid told ET's Jennifer Peros at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party in New York City on Tuesday, where the 20-year-old model looked drop-dead gorgeous.

Hadid, however, played coy about her relationship with Malik, referring to him as her "special someone" and not mentioning him by name.

Earlier this month, the 23-year-old former One Direction bandmate confirmed that they were dating when he talked about working with his "girlfriend" for his "Pillowtalk" music video with the Zach Sang and the Gang radio show.

While Malik might have appreciated her revealing swimsuit snaps, Hadid was also excited to share the pics with some other special people in her life -- namely, her mother and her agent.

Hadid also opened up about fellow SI swimsuit model Lily Aldridge, with whom she’s been friends for three years.

"This is both of our third year doing Sports Illustrated, so Swim Week is our anniversary," Hadid explained. "So this is our three-year friendship anniversary!"

Hadid also couldn't help but gush over another one of her famous friends, Taylor Swift, who absolutely killed her opening performance at the GRAMMYs on Monday and went on to win Album of the Year for 1989.

"[I'm] so proud of her and I think it's a really great journey to the end of 1989, and no one deserves it more than her," Hadid said. "She's the most hard-working, business-minded, brilliant, kind person. I'm so happy for her. I wish I could have been there but we were all there in spirit."
