One Direction just debuted their movie “This Is Us” in London, but it sounds like one band member has more to celebrate than just the movie premiere — Zayn Malik is reportedly engaged to girlfriend Perrie Edwards, 20.
The Mirror says that sources, including Edwards’ mother, confirm that the three-stone diamond ring she was sporting on the red carpet Tuesday (Aug. 20) is indeed an engagement ring.
“It was so romantic. Zayn popped the question over the weekend when they were alone together,” says one source. “It’s one of the first weekend they’ve spent with each other, as they’ve both been on tours with their bands. He wanted to wait for the perfect moment.”
Edwards’ mom Debbie Duffy adds to Real radio, “It’s true they got engaged on Sunday and it’s absolutely lovely. … He did the tradtional asking me, and then he asked his mum and dad. It was fabulous, it was lovely. I was like a little marshmallow, it was so lovely.”
Duffy also says Perrie doesn’t want a long engagement, but she doesn’t want a quick one either, so they’ll get together eventually and set a date. And it really must be love, since Zayn recently got Perrie’s face tattooed in his arm.
Edwards is best known as a member of girl group Little Mix, which was formed during the eighth season of the British “X Factor.”
