Yup, you read that right! During an interview with Rob + Holly before Audacy’s Stars and Strings Presented by Samsung Galaxy on Saturday night, Zac shared that, according to him, he anatomically has a gill. Say whaaa?

“You see that right there,” Zac said pointing to a section of his left ear in the interview posted above. “That’s where, when you’re an embryo, and you’re like, breathing embryonic fluid, that’s where your gills are. Mine didn’t actually close up all the way on one side.”

We don’t know much about human gills, but we’ll believe anything Zac says, especially knowing what an avid diver he is. It only makes sense he is practically one with the fish.
