2013 seems to be like a good year to settle down as another singer is officially announced off the ‘singles’ market – One Direction’s Zayn Malik is engaged!
The ever good looking British boy-bander is said to have popped the question to his girlfriend, Perrie Edwards of Little Mix over the weekend.
The pair has been dating since early 2012, after Little Mix’s win on The X Factor during the 2011 series. Speculations about their status began to arise from One Direction’s ‘This Is Us world’ premiere on August 20 – Edwards was sporting some serious bling on her left hand as she walked down the red carpet.
All rumours were put to an end as the songstress’s mother, Deborah Duffy, confirms the engagement. In an interview with Real Radio North East’s ‘Gary and Lisa Show’, she says:
“Yes, it’s true. They got engaged on Sunday and it’s absolutely lovely. It’s wonderful because Zayn is absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces. It’s just perfect and they get on so well together.”
In addition to that, Edwards’s brother, Jonnie also offered his congratulations to the pair via Twitter, writing: “Right, My sister and Zayn ARE Engaged! It’s true! You seen the ring on the finger and all that jazz! CONGRATS!!!”
However, don’t expect a wedding anytime soon. Duffy further adds on that the pair obviously has so much to do and that “they’ll wait ’til 2014, 2015… One Direction are doing so much and Little Mix are the same. They’re out of the country most the time doing their promotion for this, that and the other, so it’s just unbelievable. But I think they will eventually get together and set the date.”
Although the hearts of numerous One Direction and Zayn Malik fans are shattering, we can’t be happier for the two! Congratulations Malik and Perry, we wish you two happiness and all the best!
