Zayn Malik thinks Louis Tomlinson’s baby Freddie Reign is “cute as f**k.” The former One Direction singer admitted that while he’s not on “friend terms” with Tomlinson these days, he still wanted to favorite his former bandmate’s photo of himself cradling his newborn.

Malik, who’s promoting his first solo single “Pillowtalk,” which comes out on Friday, explained in an interview on Thursday with the London radio show “Capital Breakfast,” “Obviously I wish [Tomlinson] the best of luck. His kid is cute as f**k so obviously I favorited it.” He added, “We’re not talking on friend terms obviously, so that’s as far as I can go, by favoriting his picture.”

As Gossip Cop reported, although Malik has admitted he’s not that close with his former One Direction bandmates, it’s Tomlinson whom he’s publicly feuded with the most. The two fought just one week after Malik left the group last March when he teamed up with Naughty Boy for a collaboration song.

After Naughty Boy posted a photo of himself with Malik alongside the caption, “Replace this,” Tomlinson fired back at the music producer for being disrespectful. Following a series of heated tweets between the two, Malik joined the discussion and wrote to Tomlinson, “Remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?” And in August, when Malik got into a Twitter beef with Calvin Harris, Tomlinson favorited one of the DJ’s insulting tweets directed at his former bandmate.

But it would appear that Malik is now extending an olive branch to Tomlinson by favoriting the photo of him with his newborn son. For his part, Tomlinson has yet to respond to Malik’s kind words about him and his baby.
