One Direction’s Zayn Malik Officially Engaged to Little Mix Singer
One Direction’s Zayn Malik just broke a bunch of tween girls’ hearts this past week. Although rumors had started circulating, his engagement to Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards was officially confirmed.
Although a rep of the boy band initially announced the news, the statement tied together multiple hints. More recently, Malik and Edwards appeared at the premiere of One Direction: This Is Us, with the girl group singer sporting a large diamond. Malik, as well, has a tattoo of her face on his arm.
As an unofficial confirmation, Edwards’ mother said on Real Radio: "Yes, it is. It's true. They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely. It's wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces, so it's just perfect. They just get on so well together and they understand each other, so it's just fabulous."
Although both are somewhat famous in the U.K., Malik and Edwards in fact met on the set of the X Factor.
Currently, One Direction has their third album scheduled to debut around Christmas, while the Morgan Spurlock-directed documentary, featuring footage from their O2 Arena concert and from their X Factor days onward, comes out in the U.K. on August 29 and in the U.S. on August 30.
