It looks like One Direction’s Zayn Malik and Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards will be hearing wedding bells in the future as the two are now engaged!
Speculation of the engagement began as Perrie walked the This Is Us red carpet on Tuesday in a black and nude floor length gown accessorized with a giant diamond ring on her left hand. Her own mother, Deborah, apparently spilled the beans when she spoke to the Dorset Echo newspaper. “It’s official,” Deborah said. “I’m over the moon. They are really in love.”
“It’s wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous.” she later said in a radio interview. “It’s true they got engaged on Sunday and it’s absolutely lovely.”
The couple’s PR reps confirmed the news with the following statement: “Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private.”
While we think the ring should’ve came before Zayn’s tattoo of Perrie, their incredibly adorable relationship makes us want to melt. But considering they are both 20-years-old, do you think they have a chance? Tweet your thoughts to us at @ANDPOP!
UPDATE: Zayn speaks!
Since the news broke, we have long been waiting for the 1D member to speak up about his pending nuptials. Okay, technically it hasn’t been that long but in Directioner time, it feels like a long time. So imagine our relief when we finally heard Zayn talk about his engagement!
Zayn chose to be very laid back and nonchalant about the whole ordeal, telling Capital FM, “It’s cool.” Well jeez, Zayn! Just try to contain all that excitement, will ya?!
Watch Zayn talk about that and more in the video below:
Also, please note Liam, Niall, Louis and Harry’s reactions. They almost seem to have no idea what’s happening in that moment.
