Guess who favourited the picture of Louis Tomlinson’s newborn within hours of him posting it? ZAYN, or formerly known fully as Zayn Malik, immediately liked the photograph of Freddie Reign, Tomlinson’s baby. Does that mean he is extending an olive branch to his old 1D band member?

“We’re not talking on friend terms obviously, so that’s as far as I can go, by favouriting his picture,” he told Capital London Breakfast Show. ZAYN and Tomlinson have been on a very public spat on Twitter months after the former left One Direction. On the first spat, it was when a word war erupted between “Naughty Boy” and Tomlinson. ZAYN got involved and accused his former colleague of making “bitchy comments” about him, reports Digital Spy.

Next, it was when he and Calvin Harris got into a fight over Taylor Swift and One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson got involved. Hollywood Life reports that Louis favourited one of Calvin’s tweets that totally slammed ZAYN.

Considering their battles, is he taking Freddie Reign’s birth the opportunity to make amends to Louis Tomlinson? According to Hollywood Life, Malik thinks that the baby is “cute as f***” and is apparently upset that he couldn’t reach out to Louis to congratulate him. He did suggest that he hopes his Insta favouriting will at least catch Louis’ attention! “We’ll see if I get an invite [to visit the baby],” he added.

Well, is he making amends because he wants to join the band back? When asked about a possible reunion, he gave hopes to all the One Direction fans by saying “Who knows? I don’t know. If the time was right and that was the thing to do, then I would make that decision when it came around,” states Digital Spy.

Will Tomlinson and other One direction members let go of the past? Will the band reunite? We will wait and see.
