The former One Direction member admitted that he didn't expect to take to fatherhood quite as quickly as he has because he's long been used to just doing his own thing.

Zayn Malik has taken to fatherhood quite quickly. The singer welcomed his first child with girlfriend Gigi Hadid in September and has now opened up about his transition into life with his newborn daughter - Khai.

In an interview with iHeartRadio, Zayn said,  "Honestly, it’s amazing. A lot of people that I was speaking to, obviously before she was born and stuff, were like, 'You know, it’s a big adjustment and it’s going to be a massive change and stuff.' But honestly, she’s an amazing baby."

"It’s been really easy for me and Gigi to kind of just ease into it. She’s made it really easy for us," Malik said of his 5-month-old daughter. "She sleeps really well and she loves her milk. It’s just feeding and changing diapers at the moment."

"It's wicked. I'm enjoying it, for sure," he added.

The former One Direction member admitted that he didn't expect to take to fatherhood quite as quickly as he has because he's long been used to just "doing my own thing [and] just writing, recording, making music."

"I was just very focused on my career. I had time for my relationship too, but it was still solely about me," he shared. "The fact that she has been so easy to kind of just adjust to, it’s been surprising to me because I just love spending my days with her, hanging out with her, and just doing really relaxing and chill stuff with her."

Malik said he's been spending his time "watching kids shows with her on TV... learning nursery rhymes, rolling around with her, and just singing to her."

"It’s a really different pace of life, but it’s been really easy to adjust and that’s the most surprising," he shared.
