It’s official! Zayn Malik of One Direction is engaged to Perrie Edwards of the UK girl band, Little Mix.
The British beauties met in 2011 on the set of the 8th season of The X Factor UK. It’s been lovey dovey since then! Zayn even has a cartoon tattoo of her on his arm!
Did ITM see this exciting news coming? Well of course! In a recent interview Zayn admitted that his relationship with Edwards was “stronger than ever.” Then in another interview Perrie bragged about Zayn saying, “[he] is so lovely…You know things are good when you can’t wait to see the other person.”
And she’s not kidding, neither of the them can stand being separated from each other. At one point Zayn took 4 flights in 48 hours just to see his blonde beauty of a girlfriend while he was on tour with the boys.
But what really gave away this young love’s engagement was the big shiny rock Perrie donned on her finger on the red carpet of One Direction’s “This Is Us” London premiere. The two were inseparable and even sat together during the showing.
Perrie’s mom confirmed the engagement rumors saying, “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.”
Ah, young love, really young love that is. Zayn is only 20 and Perrie is just 19! They may be young, but they’re keeping it classy! Supposedly Zayn asked permission before popping the question to marry Edwards. When he got the ‘OK’, he waited till they were “alone together” to kneel on one knee and ask her to marry him. How cute!
