It wasn’t enough to just get her face tattooed on his arm — now, at only 20-years-old, One Direction band member Zayn Malik is engaged to girlfriend Perrie Edwards. The Little Mix singer showed off her engagement ring at the premiere of 1D’s movie This Is Us in London on Tuesday.
“It’s true,” Perrie’s mother revealed in an interview Wednesday. “They got engaged on Sunday and it was absolutely lovely and, you know, I feel…it’s wonderful because Zayn’s absolutely gorgeous and Perrie loves him to pieces and it’s just perfect!”
The singer’s mom added that Zayn was traditional in his proposal, and asked her permission before popping the question.
The British couple met in 2011 on the set of U.K’s The X-Factor
(Perrie and her bandmates were also contestants on the show), but didn’t start officially dating until April 2012. Earlier this year, they moved in together, and just this summer, Zayn showed his devotion to his ladylove by getting a cartoon version of her face tattooed on his arm.
Ah, young love…
