Wait, Did The Weeknd Send Gigi Hadid Flowers On Her Birthday?

Who is this ABEL?!

When you're a regular person and it's your 22nd birthday, you might get a few Instagram posts dedicated in your honor or some presents if you're lucky. Maybe it's just a cool sign.


But when you're Gigi Hadid, you get lots of floral arrangements from pals like Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, and even your "Daddio". And, of course, you share them on your Instagram story as a token of gratitude.

You'll get creative animal-shaped bouquets from magazines, flowers from Zayn Malik's entire family and a whole bucket of blooms from.... waiiiit, what???? What's that in the top left corner in purple writing?

Abel? Abel, hmmmm? Who is Abel? Where have we heard of an Abel before? An Abel who'd want to celebrate Gigi's birthday WEEKND, perhaps?

That's right, could it be Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd aka Bella Hadid's ex-boyfriend aka Selena Gomez's current boyfriend?

Let's not jump to conclusions...

We can't rule out that it could be another Abel. I did some quick investigating on a site called Baby Names Hub, and apparently 36,268 other people have been named Abel since 1880. What if it's one of them?

Now, that seems a lot less *likely* given the fact that Gigi actually knows this Abel very well and he had a close relationship with her family. But, crazier things have happened.

No matter what, Abel wasn't the sweetest guy on Gigi's birthday. That honor goes to Zayn Malik who posted this positively adorable photo with the even more adorable caption: "Happy Birthday to My Everything."

Young love, ain't it grandddddd???
