Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – One Direction member Zayn Malik has gotten engaged to his girlfriend, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards on Sunday, the mother of the bride-to-be confirmed.
Rumors of their engagement circulated when Edwards, 20, joined Malik, 20, on the red carpet for One Direction’s film premiere, “This Is Us” on Tuesday in London, wearing a sparkling three-stone ring on her ring finger.
Edwards’ mother confirmed the news on UK’s Real Radio saying with a giggle, “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, so it’s just perfect. They just get on so well, and they understand each other, so it’s just fabulous.”
The happy mother also said that her daughter did not want their engagement to be long or quick, but given the couple’s hectic schedules, they might think of walking down the aisle in 2014 or 2015.
Meanwhile, Edwards’ brother Jonnie also confirmed the news on Wednesday via Twitter saying, “Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It’s true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that Jazz! CONGRATS!!!”
The couple started dating in 2011 after meeting during the British X Factor, where Edwards’ singing group won.
One Direction is now currently busy promoting their 3-D biopic and touring for their second studio album “Take Me Home,” where their single “Best Song Ever” is nominated for Best Song in the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards.
