One Direction’s Zayn Malik has gotten engaged to his girlfriend, Perrie Edwards from Little Mix.
The rumour mill went into overdrive after the boy band’s Leicester Square premiere of their film, This Is Us, when Edwards was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her engagement finger.
The engagement was confirmed on Real Radio this morning by Edwards’ mother, Deborah who said: “"Yes it is, it's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely.”
She added: “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. It’s just fabulous.”
The couple, who have been dating since early 2011, also received congratulations from Edwards' brother Jonnie who tweeted: “Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It's true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that jazz! CONGRATS!!!"
Speaking to The Daily Mirror a source close to the couple said: “It was so romantic - Zayn popped the question over the weekend when they were alone together.”
They added: “It's one of the first weekends they've spent with each other, as they've both been on tours with their bands. He wanted to wait for the perfect moment.”
Recently, to prove his love for his girlfriend, Malik had a cartoon image of her tattooed on his right arm and told The Sun: “She loved it, she thinks it's good. It's a good sign.”
