Zayn Malik On Engagement To Perrie Edwards — ‘We’re Really Happy’
Perrie was spotted wearing a huge diamond ring on her ring finger at the red carpet in London Leicester Square for the One Direction: This Is Us movie premiere, and fans immediately guessed she was engaged.
And now Zayn has spoken about the happy news!
The band were speaking to Capital FM on Aug. 21, when Zayn was asked by the presenter: “When Little Mix were on Max’s show they all said you would be the first to pop the question, and they did say this, and we hear that you have so congratulations.”
Zayn politely replied, “Thank you very much,” and grinned when he was given flowers. When the presenter revealed that the news was broken by Perrie’s mom, all the boys — in particular Harry Styles — laughed loudly.
Most importantly, when asked how the couple were doing, Zayn said “Yeah, yeah, we’re really happy.”
One Direction’s rep confirmed the engagement and told HollywoodLife.com, “Zayn and Perrie are engaged, but any further detail regarding their relationship is private.” However, it was Perrie’s mom Debbie who broke the news originally!
“It’s official. I’m over the moon. They are really in love,” Debbie told the Dorset Echo newspaper. “It’s wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous. It’s true they got engaged on Sunday and it’s absolutely lovely. Perrie loves him to pieces and it’s perfect. They get on so well together and understand each other. It’s just fabulous.”
