ZAYN Malik’s sister has got married three days after turning 17 – but the One Direction star was nowhere to be seen.
Safaa wed her boyfriend Martin on Monday in a traditional Nikkah ceremony in Bradford.
The teenager celebrated her seventeenth birthday last Friday and is still in Sixth Form.
Her mum, Trisha, shared photos of the family from the event, but Zayn, 26, was nowhere to be seen.
She captioned the photos with: “My baby girls big day.”
The whole family was in attendance apart from the singer – who is currently based in the US – including sisters Doniya, 28, and Waliyha, 28, as well as Zayn’s dad Yaser.
Everyone can be seen smiling in the snaps, with the cutting of the cake and their kiss documented across social media accounts.
On Friday Trisha shared a photo of her girls celebrating Safaa’s wedding and the comments were flooded with people asking if the youngest is going to get married.
The Mail Online reported that Martin took to his Instagram to thank supporters for all the support.
He wrote: “Thanks to all of you who support us. We so appreciate that.”
The Sun Online have contacted Zayn’s reps for comment.
The family are generally private and so it’s unknown how long Safaa has been in a relationship with Martin.
They still live in Bradford, where Zayn supports the whole family financially, even giving his mum Trisha a wage.
He even bought a house for them after promising to take care of them after finding fame in boyband One Direction.
This was documented in the film One Direction: This Is Us, where Zayn handed his crying mum the keys to their new home.
She said: “We never had enough money to buy own house. We always lived in rented accommodation, so Zayn knew how very important it was for me to have my own place.”
Two years ago Zayn helped his mum open a beauty salon run by her and fashion blogger Doniya and Waliyha.
A source told The Sun Online at the time: “Zayn is putting up the cash because he reckons it is a sound business idea.
“The family hope that this will be the first of many in the area and hopefully across the country.
“Zayn may be an international superstar, but he is incredibly close to his family and will do anything he can to help them.”
Zayn split up with his long term, on-again-off-again girlfriend Gigi Hadid again earlier this year.
Insiders revealed that she struggled to cope with his “issues”.
