One Direction heartthrob, Zayn Malik, is officially off the market. He is engaged to Little Mix star Perrie Edwards…
Perrie sparked a Twitter frenzy on Tuesday night when she appeared on the red carpet at the world premiere of One Direction’s documentary This Is Us, flashing an engagement ring.
Female fans the world over wondered whether Zayn had popped the question. After all the couple has been together for two years.
Now Perrie’s mum has confirmed the happy news to UK radio station Real Radio.
Deborah revealed: "Yes, it's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it's absolutely lovely.
"It's wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces. It's just perfect and they get on so well together."
She added: "It's just fabulous."
Perrie’s brother Jonnie also offered his congratulations to the pair on Twitter, writing: "Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It's true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that jazz! CONGRATS!!!"
Malik, 20, and Perrie, 19, have been dating since early 2012 following Little Mix's win on The X Factor during the 2011 series.
Zayn recently debuted a new tattoo of his lady love, telling The Sun, "It’s not a direct portrait but it’s all the things I like about her. I didn’t tell her before I had it done and just surprised her with it when I came back from the States one day. She was shocked at first but loves it now. She thinks I’m crazy, like everyone else does."
The young lovers have no immediate plans to marry though, as their work commitments mean that they will be spending loads of time away. One Direction is fully booked for gigs up until 2015!
Meanwhile, One Direction fans will be joining East Coast Radio this Sunday for the pre-screening of the film This Is Us at Gateway. Win tickets to the pre-screening here.
